Dwight attended the University of Southwestern Louisiana (now UL-Lafayette) before beginning his insurance career in 1976.  After working for two years as a Casualty Underwriter at Reliance Insurance Group in Nashville, Tennessee, he returned to Lafayette where he began his career at Dwight Andrus Insurance in commercial insurance sales.  In early 1984, at the age of 28, he took the helm of Dwight Andrus Insurance as General Manager.  Dwight was then appointed President and CEO in the mid 2000’s and in 2018 turned over the Presidency to his son, Dwight W. Andrus IV.  He continues to lead Dwight Andrus Insurance toward even greater success as the company transitions into its fourth generation.
