GEICO Auto Insurance


GEICO stands for Government Employement Insurance Company, and it's a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway.  As of 2007, GEICO provided coverage for greater than 10 million motor vehicles with greater than 9 million policy holders.  The company is most famous for its gecko mascot that has a Cockney accent featured in TV commercials. 

GEICO was founded in 1936 in Fort Worth, Texas by Leo and Lillian Goodwin to provide auto insurance directly to federal government employees and their families.  GEICO's current headquarters is located in Chevy Chase, Maryland.  The company's revenue in 2004 was $9.212 billion, and it employs 24,000 people.
