Rick Nye began working for CalFarm Insurance Agency in November, 1983. He opened his own independent Insurance Agency in 1985. Rick joined with Cy Hawkins and Jim Hutson to form Hawkins, Hutson & Nye Insurance Agency in 1998. The three partners built a great name and reputation from their hands-on customer service over their years together. Eventually, the partners decided it was time to go their own separate ways, and in 2012 Rick Nye Insurance Agency was re-established with Rick's son Eric.
Rick moved to Corning in 1972. He married his wife Lisa Eller in 1982 and raised three children; Eric, Darren and Cameron. Rick and Lisa welcomed their first grandchild, Hudson Hayes Nye on August 9, 2013.
Rick coached youth soccer, football, basketball and baseball for more than 15 years. He has been an active parent in all the activities his sons have been involved in. Rick is a member of Corning Chamber of Commerece.
