Stanley opens new State Farm office in Newnan

Jake Stanley is opening a new State Farm Insurance office in Newnan, at 37 Calumet Parkway. The office will open in January.

Before being offered a job as an agent, Stanley spent nearly two years as a team member in Charleston, S.C., being mentored and trained by the agent who employed him, Charlie McQueeney. “Being a part of this company has allowed me to witness first-hand how much State Farm cares about people,” Stanley said. “After working with such a great company as a team member, I knew I wanted to become an agent to help people understand their unique risks and help them find the right resources to realize their dreams.”

Stanley said the decision to become an agent came down to his passion for being his own boss and taking pride in owning his own business. “I have always wanted to own my own business and State Farm offered a way for me to really enjoy what I do,” he said. “This career allows me to work directly with people and carry on my family’s reputation for being successful business owners.”

Stanley is a native of Jacksonville, Fla. He was a student-athlete at Florida State University where he played football for the Seminoles and eventually earned a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. After his college experience, he started his own business in residential and commercial grade paver work. His family has owned and operated a successful pool company in Jacksonville for over 25 years.

When offered the opportunity to join the State Farm Team there was no hesitation. “I saw State Farm as an opportunity to utilize my interpersonal skills and background in sales and marketing to heighten awareness about the products and services State Farm offers its valued clients. I also possess a great passion to serve my community, and State Farm has been a great platform to do so,” Stanley said.
