Gene Porter is CEO of The Porter Group.
Gene was born in the northern panhandle of West Virginia, outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He entered the insurance business in 2006, after life events and experiences helped him learn the value of insurance and how it protects people. With a mission to help educate others, Gene started in life insurance and ultimately moved into the senior market after helping his mother with her Medicare coverage.
Gene quickly found success in the industry, earning a major award for the company he represented in just 5 weeks. Following the founding of The Porter Group, he was recognized as the Best Agent and Best Agency by the Morehead News Readers’ Choice Awards. Today, he is trusted for his experience and expertise as a life and health insurance agent, specializing in Medicare health insurance plans.
A huge fan of Zig Ziglar, Gene believes that helping others achieve their goals is key to achieving his own. Gene is also a lifelong fan of Pittsburgh sports teams and has incorporated team colors from the area into The Porter Group brand.
Gene and his wife and business partner, Julia, reside in Morehead, Kentucky, and are the proud parents of five kids and many grandchildren. The guiding cornerstones of Gene’s life are faith, family and work, in that order.
