Foundation Financial Group has opened a new insurance office in Atlanta, run by Gulraj Anand (pictured).

The Atlanta office will serve customers in eight states: Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Its opening marks the second expansion this summer for Foundation Financial Group, which opened an insurance office in Charlotte, N.C., in June. The company offers property, casualty and life insurance.

“Like Charlotte’s new center, the Atlanta office expansion is a result of strong customer demand,” says David Gueterman, chief operating officer for Foundation Financial Group’s financial services affiliates. “We’re excited to provide the kind of customer service that Foundation Financial Group is known for.”

Anand, the Atlanta office’s manager, comes to Foundation Financial Group with a master’s in business administration from the Symbiosis Institute of Management Studies in Pune, India. He has nine years of insurance industry experience.

“I am looking forward to working with Foundation Financial Group,” Anand says. “This is an exciting opportunity, and I am eager to use my years of experience working with our great customers. It’s a dynamic market with amazing potential for our company.”
