Employee Janice Aller Celebrates 38th Year of Continuous Service In Milestone Year


Alexandria, VA – Clarke & Sampson Insurance, Inc. is celebrating its 65th year of operation in Alexandria.  A full service, independent insurance agency, the firm was established in 1946 as the F.W. Clarke Company on North St. Asaph Street providing home and auto insurance.  Later, when Everette R. Clarke and Jack Sampson joined the firm, the company became Clarke & Sampson.

President Tim Geary, who joined the firm in 1976, says, “I am extremely proud of Clarke & Sampson reaching this milestone anniversary. Sixty-five years ago we were just a small firm offering basically two types of insurance. Now we are a full service independent agency offering both business and personal insurance products in all 50 states and internationally.” 

Clarke & Sampson Vice President Bill Howard remarks that the company celebrates not just another year, but decades of growth and expansion.  “They key to our longevity – even in uncertain economic times -- is simple: we have remained true to our guiding principals of service, trust and integrity and that has not changed since 1946.”

Highly professional and talented staff have been critical to the company’s success and one of those employees, Janice Aller, is also celebrating a milestone year: her 38th anniversary with Clarke & Sampson.

Aller, Personal Insurance Assistant & Flood Insurance Specialist, began her career at the firm in 1973, making her the company’s longest tenured employee.  “Working here for 3 decades with wonderful colleagues is my proudest achievement,” says Jan. She has witnessed much change in both the workplace and insurance industry but one thing has remained constant: the commitment to integrity by the Clarke & Sampson team. “I know what we do makes a difference in people’s lives. It makes me proud of our company and my profession.”

A third-generation independent insurance and real estate agency, Clarke & Sampson has shown a strong commitment to giving back in the community and has received the esteemed title of “Business of the Year,” from the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce.
