Aligned goals and merged visions.

In July 2015, two legacy independent insurance agencies united, Ollis & Company and Akers & Arney. These prestigious local businesses brought together their teams, their expertise, and their traditions, merging their vision in providing superior customer service and client success. This merger also resulted in Ollis/Akers/Arney becoming the largest independent insurance agency in Southwest Missouri.
