AssuredPartners Evansville has deep roots to the Evansville business community.  The office DNA goes back to Citizens Insurance, The Jesse Stock Agency and Douglas Bays & Associates.  AssuredPartners has a unique philosophy when it comes to growth thru acquisition.  Partner with the best of the best, provide them with the tools and resources to help their community businesses, then let them do what they have always done, make independent decisions at the local level as to what is best for Evansville. It is this very philosophy that has catapulted AssuredPartners inside the top 10 insurance brokers in the United States.  “It is truly a unique (outside the box) approach to growth that has been extremely successful”, said Doug Bays, Agency President for AssuredPartners Evansville.  

When Doug heard about the CCO “Living Outside the Box” speaker series, he was thrilled.  He has deep roots of his own with the founder, Ron Cosby, and former editor, Joe Wallace, who inspired the speaker series with his book, “Living Outside the Box”.  “When Ron first thought about starting the paper, he used me as a sounding board for his ideas.  When the paper had it first printing, which was done in Princeton, IN, I had a pickup truck, so I was called to help him go pick them up and distribute them.  I’ll never forget trying to beat the rain with all those papers in the back of the truck for his first edition.  There are many funny stories to share about those early days of the paper.  The CCO itself is a tremendous example of one man, who had a call to action, was joined by others who also felt compelled to get involved for the purpose of promoting good public policy for our community.  When you see now where it has come, it is quite impressive but not surprising.  People are interested in accountability.  Accountability provides transparency. Transparency provides confidence and a path forward toward good”.

When Mr. Cosby recently shared with Doug that he had interest from local elected political officials in helping to underwrite the speaker series, he voiced concern.  “Not because of the people involved, many of them are my friends, the principle was the issue.  I felt that this speaker series should be void of political influence as much as possible.  Politics has it place, but often-times, it inhibits real growth and opportunity because certain inefficiencies override what is best for everyone and only benefit a few.  It’s an unintended consequence.  I felt this speaker series was an opportunity for our local business leaders to share with others and that it should not be influenced by any political ties”.  I suppose that in some way is itself, an example of “Living Outside the Box”.
