Bill Kliewer, BKCW’s Chairman “Our relationship with our clients begins with finding out where you are today, and where you want to go. We want to know what keeps you up at night, what excites you when you get up in the morning, and what you are great at — not only as it applies to your insurance, but to your business, your family, and your life. From that framework, we create a relation-ship that will help you better achieve your dreams.”


In 1952, a friend of William S. “Bill” Bigham’s, from Waco, asked him to recommend an insurance agent who could work for him in Killeen. When Bill couldn’t come up with anyone, his friend convinced him to take the job. Bill served as a life insurance agent for six years and in 1958, formed a partnership and opened his first insurance agency. That agency grew and changed many times over the years, and eventually led to the establishment of BKCW — a full service insurance agency providing property, casualty, life, and health insurance, as well as employee benefits to businesses, families, and individuals.


Currently, BKCW operates primarily in the state of Texas, but has clients with operations in 37 states. During the last 25 years, BKCW has established itself as a leader in providing customized insurance programs to a number of specialty industries.


BKCW takes pride in prioritizing education by taking a leadership role in insurance professional standards. BKCW books more than 400 classroom hours of continuing education and professional development classes every year. The agency has been recognized by the Independent Insurance Agents of Texas for its commitment to the professional development of its customer service staff, and by the National Alliance for Insurance Education & Research for its commitment to education and professionalism.


BKCW’s success can be attributed to developing authentic, long-term relation-ships with clients — and always getting to the heart of the matter.
