IN PROFILE: Lloyd Peugh

BUSINESS: Goins Insurance Agency – Farmers Insurance

AGE: 43

BACKGROUND: “I have been an agent for a year now and enjoy working with the people. I made a career move from being a union iron worker, but it has given me so much more to look forward to. I enjoy helping people to better understand insurance and the proper coverage they need.”

FIRST JOB: “I was 13 and worked for my uncle doing landscaping and maintenance on weekends and summers.”

YEARS IN BUSINESS: “Farmers Insurance has been in business since 1928 and this office has been serving Pahrump since 1977 and I have been there for a year.”

PERSONAL: “I love spending time with my family. I’m fortunate to have two beautiful daughters. One loves softball and the other is into dance and cheer. I also have four strong sons. I love sports. I coach football and baseball and still play softball. I also love to take the family camping, hunting and fishing. These are things I grew up doing. I also have a passion for rodeo. I have competed in the professional levels for bull riding and bronc riding. I raise bucking bulls which we use to compete. I guess you can say I enjoy life.”

BUSINESS CLIMATE: “I feel like there is a ton of opportunity, but at the same time always room for improvement.”
