Our Story

Community One Insurance President Zach Ligon truly has a passion for the insurance industry. He’s a graduate of Appalachian State University with a double major in Finance & Banking and Risk Management & Insurance. Armed with over a decade of experience in the insurance industry ranging from service, sales, and various leadership roles, Zach started Community One Insurance to offer the personal service and options only an Independent Insurance Agent can offer to be able to help others protect what’s most important to them.

The Community One team also sees supporting local communities as part of their mission, establishing lifelong relationships with the residents, businesses, and non-profit organizations, giving back to those in each of the communities they serve. Simply put, Community One supports the communities that support other families and businesses.

As a family owned and operated business, Zach is involved in the day-to-day operations overseeing that Community One Insurance clients, family and friends receive exceptional service and quality insurance products. They are a one-stop-shop for all insurance needs and strive to provide the best customer experience possible. By providing exceptional, personal service, their business success is built heavily on referrals from family, friends and existing clients. 

Zach believes, and instills in all team members, in protecting what matters most for your individual, family, or business needs. The assurance of knowing you have the right type and amount of protection in place is critical. For businesses, they understand and can relate to the importance of having the right products in place so that in the event of a loss you can be back up and running in a timely manner with very little disruption.

When not in the office Zach spends time with his beautiful wife Leslie and two daughters. As a family they love the outdoors, from the beach to the mountains. They support and attend Appalachian State Football games and tailgating. Zach is also an avid trout fisherman when able to slip away to the
NC mountains.

We’re delighted to help train the next generation of Independent Insurance Agents by offering internships to area college students. Meet Alec Rowan, Community One Insurance Intern:

Alec is pursuing his Bachelor’s Degree at Wake Forest University, and (of course) heading toward a career in helping others through insurance.

His prowess on the football field is an example of his commitment to hard work, teamwork, focus, and contributing to the success of the whole team. We especially appreciate the involvement he’s had with a number of area non-profit organizations, making him a great fit for Community One’s commitment to supporting others in our community.
