Meet Rachel & Joe Popkowski of Livingston Insurance Agency, Inc.


Tell us about your business and what you do.  

Livingston Insurance Agency is a family-owned and operated independent insurance agency that provides risk management advice and insurance services to both personal and commercial customers.  We love growing and building long-term relationships with our customers.  In fact, we are celebrating our 60th year in business this year, and some of our customers have been with us from the very start. 

What is your business philosophy?   

Serving our customers and the public is our number one priority!

Why did you decide to get involved with United Way of the Midlands?  

United Way of the Midlands is an incredible organization that enables the small business owner to have a large impact on their community.  As a small business, each team member is asked to "wear multiple hats" and time is at a premium.  The United Way of the Midlands provides a huge service to us by vetting deserving organizations, listening to how we want to give back, finding us the right non-profit to partner with, organizing volunteer opportunities for our office alone and in conjunction with other groups, and connecting our team with other like-minded individuals in the community.  The soft t-shirts are a nice perk too!

Why are you passionate about giving back to our community?  

This passion has been at the core of our operations since we opened our doors in 1958.  We believe that communities are only as good as the people who live in them.  We want to do our part to ensure that our community continues to thrive as a place for all of us to work and play today and in the future for our children.

What is your favorite quote?   

“A sense of humor is part of the art of leadership, of getting along with people, of getting things done.” – Dwight D. Eisenhower
