Hayne Hipp was CEO of Liberty Corporation, a publicly held organization that included insurance companies and television stations with additional investments in media, real estate and technology ventures. Hayne’s grandfather, W. Francis Hipp, started the company in 1919 with headquarters at 135 South Main Street, which remains part of the Greenville skyline. Liberty Fellowship, along with the iconic Liberty Bridge in Falls Park, were named in honor of the company and the Hipp family.
