JB-LB Insurance was founded when Jerry and Lois Baker decided to venture into the insurance industry. In 1968 they bought a small independent insurance agency located in Cameron, Missouri. Under the Baker’s influence, JB-LB Insurance grew into a thriving, full-service insurance agency. JB-LB Insurance was among the first independent insurance agencies in the state of Missouri to establish branch offices. At one time the Bakers owned and operated seven agencies. Gradually, these branch offices were sold to their respective managers.
In 1994 Koehly, Baker and Associates was started in Chillicothe, Missouri. The Bakers felt that Chillicothe was a good market for their current mix of insurance products.
JB-LB Insurance has been operated as a family oriented business since its inception in 1968. Jerry and Lois Baker’s son, Mark, worked in the office with his parents from the age of 20. In 1997 Mark Baker, along with his wife Nina, purchased the insurance agency from his parents. They founded the company MB & Associates, LLC to serve as the parent company of the different insurance agencies.
In 2002 the opportunity to acquire Mericle Agency in Plattsburg, Missouri presented itself. Mericle Agency has been deeply rooted in the community.
MB & Associates, LLC expanded its brand yet again in the summer of 2016 to Platte City, Missouri by merging with Olin Miller Insurance.
Founded in 1986 by Olin Miller, Platte City offered a broad market place and an opportunity for growth.
Northwest Missouri is very diverse. One insurance company alone cannot possibly satisfy all of their insurance needs.
Our agency is well versed in personal insurance, commercial insurance, life, and health insurance.
