Effective March 1, Boyd assumes duties as manager of the insurance and banking services that Effingham County Farm Bureau offers. He and insurance agents Kirk Rahn and Jonathan Hathaway offer a complete line of insurance products from the Georgia Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company and through its brokerage department. Life insurance products, tax-deferred annuities, and Long Term Care insurance are available through the Southern Farm Bureau Life Insurance Company. The Effingham County Farm Bureau also offers banking services such as car and equipment loans, credit cards and deposit accounts through the Farm Bureau Bank.

A native of Claxton, Boyd has lived in Southeast Georgia all his life. He is a graduate of Georgia Southern University and is active in the Georgia Southern Athletic Foundation.  He is also a member of Pittman Park United Methodist Church.
