Blake Barnes started his insurance career in 1996 with a local agency. Within a few years, he realized his ability to effectively service his clients, many of which were his longtime friends, was severely restricted while he worked within the confines of another agency. In 1999 he formed his agency and never looked back. Blake has 8 years of CFO experience managing a $30 million electric company. His strong accounting and business background, allow him to quickly analyze financials, read between the lines, make projections and assess corporate risks, and make recommendations for various coverage. His true strength is building lasting relationships with clients and being a resource for them through his extended business, personal, and professional network. Blake’s hobbies and interests can be summed up in one word – Golf.
