Charlie Coffey, a former college football head coach, knew the importance of talented and committed players. It’s the foundation of any great football team and the cornerstone of every successful business. From the beginning, the focus has been on building a high-performing team that would ensure Nationwide’s ongoing success. Through efforts aimed at recruiting experienced leaders as well as developing the next generation, Nationwide now has a leadership team dedicated to our clients’ commitments.
Our mission statement is the lens and filter that we use to evaluate everything we do and how we do it.
Is what we are about to do going to be profitable for our client, our people and our company? If yes, check.
Is what we are being asked to do ethical? If yes, check.
Is it safe? If yes, check
If the answer is yes to all these questions, then do it 100% of the time. If it is not, do not do it the first time.
Nationwide has experienced growth and success by being dedicated to their clients’ commitments, but that dedication and commitment to excellence started with our founder, Charlie Coffey. Charlie Coffey embodied the values of tenacity, perseverance, loyalty, hard work, duty, and service to others by the way he lived his life. He learned many lessons growing up one of ten kids in the Depression and worked hard to receive the 99th of 100 football scholarships awarded at The University of Tennessee. Through hard work both on and off the football field, Coffey ultimately became a Co-Captain and maintained the highest GPA for four consecutive years. While later serving his country as a US Army Infantry Officer, these qualities were further honed. Upon leaving the Army he embarked on a twenty-year college football career. There were successful stints at The University of Tennessee (defensive line coach), The University of Arkansas (defensive coordinator) and Virginia Tech (head coach). Ultimately, he brought his fundamentals and commitment to excellence to Nationwide Express with its founding in 1980. He lived his life in a way that instilled those values in his sons, Michael and David Coffey (current CEO and President).
