Chip’s family settled in York County in 1773. He is the sixth generation of Hutchison’s living on the same property. Court documents from the early 1800’s show that his earliest ancestor in York County, David Hutchison, was named the executor of estates by widows to sort things out after the loss of a spouse – an early financial advisor of sorts. His great-grandfather was one of the first Mayors in Rock Hill. Others in his family history were bankers and insurance professionals in Rock Hill. Chip carries on this tradition by serving his community to make it a better place; it’s in his blood.
Everything about Hutchison Group is steeped in tradition and the heritage of the area and the people that live there. The logo for Hutchison Group is an arrowhead. Chip’s grandfather had a dairy farm in the 1920’s called “Arrowhead Dairy Farm”. According to family history, there was a great Indian War on the property between the Catawba Indian Nation and the Cherokees hundreds of years ago. Chip lives on the same land today that David settled and the same house his grandfather built. Today, he still finds arrowheads lying around the property.
Everyone at Hutchison Group understands that the best part of the rich history is that it makes you a part of something bigger than just yourself. They genuinely care about what happens to the people in their community. The past is a legacy that empowers their business to this day.
