GEICO stands for Government Employees Insurance
Company. Puzzled, are you? Well, the name goes back to the
beginnings of the company. Founder Leo Goodwin first targeted
a customer base of U.S. government employees and military
personnel. Today, of course, the company has grown to provide
insurance to a wide range of customers, no matter whether
they're employed by Uncle Sam or the private sector.
GEICO insures more than 16 million vehicles
and is the third-largest private passenger auto insurer
in the United States as reported by A.M. Best 2008 market
share data. With 24,000 associates employed and 12 major
offices around the country, GEICO offers 24-hour service,
