Lance Noyes, Owner, Licensed Insurance Agent
Lance Noyes is the owner of Pegram & Noyes and opened the agency in Gastonia in 1998. Prior to becoming an insurance agent Lance was a bay supervisor for Phillip Morris USA in Cabarrus county for 9 years. He graduated from UNC Charlotte in 1988 where he studied psychology and business. Lance married his college sweetheart Lou whom he is still married to and has 3 wonderful children, Austin, Tyler and Chandler.
Lance became a licensed property and casualty agent while still employed at Phillip Morris when the tobacco industry was starting to come under fire for its product. His friend and counselor Rick Pegram who had his own agency in Concord NC extended his hand and offered him an opportunity. That opportunity led him away from Concord to Gaston County which was in need of an agent that not only provided a sound insurance product, but backed it up with outstanding customer service. Due to the ever changing market place for insurance, Pegram & Noyes focuses on providing a product that fits the customers current needs and budget. There are so many insurance companies that market themselves to be better than everyone else but in the long run fall short when tested on what they are marketing and advertising.
Lance has instilled his philosophies and goals throughout the organization which has attributed to the success of the agency. The Pegram & Noyes Team is fully equipped to handle all of your insurance needs and they look forward to talking to you.
