McKay Group Evolution:

So how did McKay Insurance Agency turn into McKay Group? Or more accurately, how did McKay Insurance turn into a division of McKay Group? A few years ago the agency was purchased by two key employees, Todd Chambers and Scott Ziller. Since that time McKay has been growing and evolving rapidly, adding a large number of insurance company partners, growing nationally as a provider of insurance for human powered events, and other services. So even as our insurance offerings have grown, we've realized that we are more than just insurance. Our evolution is expanding many of the professional services our clients need to plan and enjoy safe, secure, and carefree lives. With the McKay Group, that will continue.
