Nov. 14, 2002 – The Gotts and Associates insurance agency will open a St. John office on the third floor of the Marketplace by the end of the year. "We see a big opportunity over there," owner Carl Gotts said from his offices on St. Croix.
Gotts said his company already writes health insurance and related policies for numerous small groups and individuals on St. John who communicate with him by telephone or via the Gotts Associates Web site.
He said that most of St. John's health insurance needs come from such small groups and individuals, and meeting such needs is his company's specialty. "It seems like you guys are forgotten over there," he said.
Gotts anticipates that the office initially will be open from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesdays. He hopes to expand to Thursdays as well as business increases. He said an office will afford more privacy for clients. Previously, he met them in restaurants or their offices.
Until a telephone is installed at the St. John office, clients on the island can continue to reach Gotts and Associates at the St. Croix number, 719-4065.
