Roger Leftwich, owner of TGR Insurance Benefits, has over 24 years’ experience in financial services. Roger grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. He has access to 39 different companies and came across Land As Your Legacy and partnered with Nationwide in 2013.
Roger has a personal connection with the families who join Land As Your Legacy, having personally experienced the hardships of a family farm. In Roger’s early 20’s his grandfather suddenly passed away at age 66. In order to take care of his grandmother Roger tried to buy his grandparent’s 50-acre farm. The common wealth state of Virginia required that every member of the immediate family agree to sign over their part of the property so that Roger could purchase it. In the end, Roger was unable to acquire all of the family signatures he needed and his grandparent’s farm was broken up and sold because there was no transition plan in place.
It is Roger’s passion to prevent this type of tragedy to families of businesses, farms and ranches. He wants to help them keep their legacy alive and growing. Land As Your Legacy is a program built by Nationwide Financial so that the legacy of the farm or ranch is successful for generations to come.
Roger also gives back to the community through his non-profit organization 4 The Solution. In the last 10 years Roger and 4 The Solution have hosted assemblies and programs to educate our youth and community members on the dangers of illicit drugs, alcohol and cigarettes.
