Our Story

4 Generations of Insurance Experts & a strong team that has your protection in mind!

W.O. “Omah” Gibson

 

The Beginning

DRS Insurance Group was founded in 1968 by W.O. “Hoot” Gibson in the small community of Bartow, FL. Like his father (Omah Gibson) before him, Hoot Gibson built his agency around a core set of values and an unyielding commitment to service for the community.

Beyond the Dealer Community

With the formation of DRS Insurance Group in 2013, the firm expanded its services to provide for the insurance needs of our local community, both Business and Personal. DRS is consistently seeking and hiring the ‘’best of the best’’ in personnel and contracting with quality insurance carriers to handle specific business placements.

Moving Forward

AGENCY PERPETUATION

While many Insurance Firms are being purchased by larger Agencies, DRS has developed a perpetuation / succession plan that is both family and employee based. As a 50-year-old Agency with roots dating back over 100 years, there will be Gibsons in the office for years to come. As well, DRS is constantly looking for ways to develop and maintain an ownership program that promotes and provides for the company’s long-term goals.

 

THE NEXT GENERATION

The past 50 years provide a legacy of our family’s commitment. It is a commitment to excellence in professionalism, integrity and unyielding service to those with whom we work. For us, it is our family heritage and one in which we are most proud.

Steven Gibson

President

I grew up in the small town of Bartow, FL in the middle of the state. I graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in Journalism. My family has been involved in the industry since 1912. I was the last to join the family business…joining my Dad in 1985. Providing education is my passion and I truly love the Automotive Industry. I most enjoy speaking to Dealers about insurance and how best to protect their Dealership.

Personally, I enjoy the political arena and the ”history” of our nation that brought us to where we are. I love the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution that is the framework of our Country. Some fun facts about me are that I spent many years on the golf course as a player, a teacher/instructor, and as a caddy. I love the history of the game and especially the talent of those that played in years gone by.

While I do love to travel and explore new places and things, you most often will find me covered with dirt from working on some type of ”project” at our Indialantic or Hawthorne homes when I’m not at work. I enjoy hard physical work. Our children were Boy Scouts and they gained a tremendous love and respect for God’s earth through Scouts…the trails and rivers. They became self-sufficient and learned to take care of themselves and others. Great organization.

David Gibson

VP Business Development

I grew up in Florida, I have lived on the Space Coast for the majority of my life. After high school, I attended UCF and joined ZBT (fraternity). I am fairly new to the insurance industry, having only just recently become a 220 licensed agent. That being said, I am the fourth generation of the Gibson name to follow this path. My life has been full of “insurance talk”, and I believe that sort of secondhand experience has helped me tremendously at this stage in my career. I think what excites me most about working in the insurance industry is the freedom; freedom to choose from a variety of niches to work within, and consequently the diversity of people I will work with.

I am a huge UFC fan. I am into all sports but MMA is something I appreciate on an entirely different level. I spend a good amount of time contemplating and learning the nature of the universe and our existence and consciousness. I would consider it my “least known about” interest. I try to not miss a UFC event, which occur on most Saturday nights; so, wherever I am, I find somewhere to watch. Other than that, I spend a lot of my free time working out and learning about various subjects unrelated to work. My favorite way to spend a weekend (when I can) is traveling, anywhere that I haven’t seen before.

Eva A Gibson

CFO

I grew up in Texas and moved to Florida in 1975. I traded in my cowboy boots, pickup truck, and horses for flip flops, surfboards, and “Gators”! I began my insurance career as a Customer Service Representative. I have worked in all departments of insurance until my current position attained in 2014. I am excited to be able to contribute to our success by analyzing our company’s strengths and weaknesses and then proposing corrective actions.

Personally, I really enjoy decorating and remodeling, whether it’s a single room or an entire home. My guilty pleasure is ordering Bread Pudding at any restaurant offering it and so far no one has been able to top the one served at Commanders Palace in New Orleans! My favorite way to spend a weekend – the 3 R’s , Relax, Reflect on my accomplishments and appreciate what I have & Recharge by meditating or doing something fun.

Kristine Kaletcher

Account Manager

I was born in Orlando Florida and moved to Melbourne when I was 6 years old. I started my career in the insurance industry in 2018 as a Technical Assistant for a Specialty Wholesale Insurance Distributor. I joined Dealer Risk Services in January 2020 as an Account Manager for the Personal and Commercial Lines Departments. My favorite part of the job is helping clients through difficult situations. I am always eager to learn new skills in the insurance industry.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time at the beach with my dog Bennie.
