Nicholson Insurance Agency announced Dec. 10 the upcoming retirement of Joe Browne Nicholson, effective Dec. 31. 

"After 46 years in the business, it seems like now is a good time to slow down," said Nicholson.

Nicholson joined his father-in-law John A. Bell III's Cromwell Bloodstock Agency in 1977. Nicholson commented, "Working alongside Mr. Bell and his family was a tremendous experience for me. The lessons learned on the importance of maintaining high standards of work ethic and performance were invaluable. I have tried to practice these principles throughout my career."

Nicholson Insurance Agency was established in 1993 and has since served clientele with equine and farm insurance, along with other general lines of property and casualty coverage for individuals and businesses. Nicholson Insurance Agency has been acquired by Acrisure, the sixth-largest brokerage firm in the world. John David Christman, an experienced equine insurance professional, will lead that division. Romesh Sinclair and Sarah Harrison will continue to provide quality individualized client services.

"It has been my privilege and pleasure to associate with the world of the horse. Being able to combine my career avocation with my horse affection has been a blessing," said Nicholson.  

He continued, "I have met many wonderful people over the years at sales, racetracks, and show rings who possess that exceptional quality of love and care for the horse. Special indeed."
