Insurance & Benefits Group (IBG) was formed in January, 2001 as a merger between the Maggard Mateja & Thompson, Randy, Russell, and Kendrick-Kerber Insurance Agencies. The three agencies joined forces to become the largest independent insurance agency in Pettis and Johnson Counties, Missouri, with offices in Sedalia, Warrensburg, and Lee's Summit. Atra Insurance combined its operations with Insurance & Benefits Group in May 2015, growing the agency to over 30 licensed agents and support staff.
In August, 2015 IBG joined AssuredPartners, a global leader in the retail brokerage industry, allowing us to bring greater recources to our clinets in the form of markets and expertise. Under the leadership of Randy Russell, IBG continues to be a local trusted agency that specializes in all types of insurance products in personal and business coverage as well as financial services and employee benefits. Our Lee's Summit office further expanded in 2017 with the addition of the Phillips Agency to AssuredPartners, extending our Benefits sevices to all the Kansas City area.
