March Business of the Month

Red River Insurance Agency & Financial Services - Tim Graham
March 2023 Business of the Month

Tim Graham has been a part of the fabric of New Boston, Texas since he was born in 1967 and the self-proclaimed salesman, downhill ski instructor, coach, baker and dad is coming off a successful tenure as the President of the New Boston Chamber of Commerce.

Once the voice of New Boston Lions football, Graham spends his days in a variety of functions including coaching Upward Bound basketball, teaching a Sunday School class at Tapp Methodist, and as an insurance agent for Red River Insurance Agency and Financial Services, an arm of the Bockman Insurance Agency, where he has been since 2018.

The Bockmon Insurance Agency was founded in 1974 by Harthia W. Bockmon in Daingerfield Texas. Danny Bockmon joined the agency in 1976 and soon the Bockmons expanded the agency to Lone Star and Hughes Springs. In 1991 the Ore City office was opened followed shortly by the Longview office. In 1997 an alliance with Joe Redfearn and Joe Buford formed the Buford-Redfearn agency in Mt Pleasant.

Bockmon-Green in Texarkana opened in 2002. This office was merged into the Red River Member Service Agency which was originally located within the Red River Federal Credit Union in Texarkana, Texas and now has a new office located at I-30 and Summerhill.

Graham also has a thriving rental property business. He bought his first rent house in 2004 and has since slowly accumulated other local properties including a storage unit facility and now has a total of 17 properties. Graham says owning these properties keeps his home improvements skills very honed.

Away from work, Graham is also a staunch, dyed in the wool Texas Aggie, graduating from the university in 1989 with a Bachelor of Science in Economics. While there, Graham was active in campus activities such as the Traditions Council, Ross Volunteers and the Drum and Bugle Corps.

Tim has been married to his wife, Christina, since April of 1997and the couple has two sons, both now Aggies. Trent is a junior and Tyler graduated from A&M.

Graham has seen firsthand that the current business climate is not very conducive to young couples coming back and raising their families here in New Boston. He says he remembers how it was when he and Christina were raising their two sons, and he would like to see New Boston return to those days. Graham says the town has a lot to offer as far as raising kids in a traditional values environment, and that the recent influx of new businesses does give him some hope that the town is once again on the rise. He says, “I see a lot of young couples, like the Stephens family, Colby Brown and others, and I hope we can get behind them and make New Boston the kind of town that they can do well in.”

He points to recent successes as the foundation for that hope, citing places like Lesco Builders, Clay Garrett at West Fraser, and Scott Norton, Eric Voyles and Jeff Whitten out at TexAmericas as key factors in a bright future for the city. He notes, “The reason I think New Boston is in a prime location is that we are located adjacent to major thoroughfares and have an available job force and access to water. We are a great place for anybody to locate their new business or industry.”

From his standpoint as a businessman and the recently Past Chamber of Commerce President, Graham firmly believes that all of the different entities that are the foundation of New Boston, have to get on the same page for the betterment of the city and its people and businesses. He was able to work with a variety of different entities while on the Chamber Board, and he believes that the goal for New Boston should now be the challenge of getting the City, the Chamber, the SIDC, the schools and the businesses all working together toward the same goal. Graham says that the city has to have that cohesiveness to face the challenges that New Boston is now facing, and those challenges coming down the road in its future.

Over the years, this local West Fraser lumber mill has been a fantastic supporter of New Boston area through employment opportunities and community involvement!

West Fraser's heritage is a story about people who came together to build so much more than those three young men imagined was possible.
