Summer is wonderful for so many reasons, and we need to recognize one of them: the addition of these four people to our work family.
Brian King has served at Barton Mutual since 1993. He was an underwriter for several years and served as VP of Underwriting before being elected by the Board of Directors to his current role of President/CEO in January 2018. A native of Liberal, Brian is invested in the community. Barton Mutual is fortunate to have a leader with so many years of experience in the industry and at this company. The years under his direction have gone well for Barton Mutual, and the future looks bright.
Missy Davied celebrates her 20th year at Barton Mutual this year. She serves the company well as a Customer Service Representative and Policy Production Administrator. If you are a policyholder, you might get to speak with Missy if you call to make a payment or have a question about your policy. She is also a local, and we are thrilled that she has spent 20 years growing and learning with us. Her wealth of experience comes in handy!
Teri McCleary joined the Barton Mutual family in 2003. She worked in our Policy Production department for a while, and then she transitioned to Claims, where she serves today. When our policyholders experience a loss, Teri will be there to make sure the process goes smoothly for them. She also shares duties as a Customer Service Representative. If you ever see photos on our social media accounts of our parties, dinners, or business trips, you have seen Teri at work. She does a fantastic job feeding us and making sure we find time to celebrate when it is necessary. Work is more fun when Teri is part of it, and we don’t know what we would do without her!
Jeremy Goodell is the “new kid on the block.” He celebrates his 1st anniversary at Barton Mutual this year. Most of his career before coming here was spent as IT Director for a pharmacy chain, so we were fortunate to snag him as Director of IT/CIO. We threw him in the deep end as soon as he started, and it turns out he can swim really well! We look forward to many more years with Jeremy on board with us.
