Nationwide Mutual Insurance: A Mutual Co-op Company

Devin Fuhrman, Vice-President of Sponsor Relations, tells Nationwide’s history as a mutual cooperative company.

Over the last 90 years, Nationwide has grown from a small mutual auto insurer owned by policyholders to one of the largest insurance and financial services companies in the world.

Early growth came from working together with Farm Bureaus that sponsored the company. Nine Farm Bureaus continue to promote Nationwide.
