U.T. "Buster" Williamson is the president of Old Carolana Group. UT and his wife Marcia started Williamson and Associates in 1984 which led to Old Carolana Group in 1991. UT is a native of Wilson, North Carolina where he and his family currently resides. UT attended North Carolina State University where he received his degree in agricultural education which led to 12 years of teaching in the public schools. In 1984 UT left teaching and moved into the life insurance field. UT quickly found that most agents were still using the traditional means of providing coverage to clients. Using non-traditional methods in life insurance has led to a loyal base of individual and business clients which have helped him receive many awards and special recognition from several life insurance companies.
