QuarterMoore - Building Upon a Legacy

Lane Moore founded QuarterMoore in 2005 as a platform to continue the family’s entrepreneurial spirt, playing founding roles in groundbreaking companies as well as to make seed and early-stage investments on behalf of the Moore family and a select syndicate of partners.

Reinventing Moving and Storage

Today, QuarterMoore and its partners are the largest operator in the PODS franchise system operating markets across Arizona, Nevada, Texas, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.

In 2015 Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan (OTPP) acquired PODS Enterprises Inc. for $1 billion.

Omni Insurance -
IPO to Successful Exit

Through a public offering in 1993, Omni was listed on NASDAQ (OMGR) and in early 1998 was acquired by The Hartford Financial Services (NYSE: HIG).

Capitol City Bank – Making History

Another significant event in the Moore family’s history was the minority investment in Capitol City Bank, a small full-service state bank operating in a suburb of metropolitan Atlanta. Ultimately, Dudley Moore Jr. became the sole owner and in 1979, when banking laws were restrictive, Capitol City bank was sold to Prudential Insurance Company of America (NYSE: PRU).

Changing the Landscape of Life Insurance

In 1973, Sunbelt Life Insurance Company was formed as a subsidiary of Southeastern Fidelity Insurance Company, a property-casualty insurance company controlled by the Moore family.

At the time of its formation, life insurance was seldom sold by property-casualty insurance agents. American Agency Life was unique in that it was founded by a group of prominent property-casualty insurance agents with the sole purpose of marketing life insurance from the property-casualty Independent Agency system. Through dramatic change in product mix and sales distribution, American Agency posted significant growth and in 1978 was acquired by VHV Vereinigte Hannoversche Versicherung a.G., a German owned insurance company.

The Early Days

In the early 1950s, Dudley L. Moore, Sr. serendipitously created a niche segment of the private passenger vehicle market insuring drivers unable to obtain coverage from traditional insurance companies at standard rates due to excessive traffic violations, age, DUI, etc. Gradually, this segment grew to become over 20% of today’s country-wide total private vehicle market, ultimately known as “non-standard.”

In 1957, Dudley L. Moore, Jr. joined the organization and soon transformed Moore Group Inc. into a holding company which owned insurance agencies, insurance companies, financial institutions and other financially-related service companies. In 1979, Moore Group was acquired by American Financial Group (NYSE: AFG).
