State Farm Agent Darryl Bandy has received the company’s Chairman’s Circle award for the Advance office.

This recognizes agents who align their business with the long-term direction of the company and act as advocates for their customers. Fewer than 1.800 of more than 19,000 State Farm agents across the nation received this recognition.

Bandy has been with State Farm since 2001 and is in his 22nd year as an agent. The Bandy Agency has received local, regional and national recognition over the years.

“Before joining State Farm, I was searching for a fulfilling career to become a respected business professional, helping people in meaningful ways,” he said.  “Being a State Farm agent is a worthy challenge and our work to serve our customers, our community and beyond has many years to go.”

The agency has qualified for the Chairman’s Circle award in 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2022.

When asked what he attributes to receiving this award, Bandy replied: “Of course, the conscientious efforts of our team and the support of our community and customers are responsible for our success. Helping others prepare for the unexpected is what we do,and staying involved in our community also helps us reach our goals. This award wouldn’t be possible without the exceptional efforts of the entire team that includes Beverly Galyean, Stacey Clous, and Kati Shoaf.

“Also, my wife Gina Bandy has taught at Shady Grove Elementary for many years. Our children Caroline, Landon, and Ava Bandy were raised and very active here in Davie County. Their character has contributed significantly to the trustworthiness of our agency as well.”
