Providing Financial Services Since 1949
MEA has evolved through a series of mergers and acquisitions. The major historical events are as follows:
- On June 14, 1949 Glenn H. Scott started in the insurance business primarily focusing on sales of Life Insurance. He eventually expanded into property and casualty in the late 50’s. In August 1973 Glenn D. Scott joined his father in the business. Glenn H. Scott retired December 31, 1979 and sold the agency to Glenn D. Scott.
- On October 9, 1991 Glenn Scott sold his agency to Key Bank of Oregon and was hired as the State Insurance Manager. KeyCorp went through several mergers, the last of which was with Society Bank in 1993. Senior management made the decision to exit the insurance business and subsequently sold the entire Key Bank of Oregon Insurance Services department to Glenn D. Scott on January 1, 1995. In December 1996, William E. “Bill” Wilson became a partner through a purchase agreement with MEA.
- On December 22, 2005, William E. “Bill” Wilson purchased the remaining shares from Glenn D. Scott when he retired.
Bill’s vision is to continue to grow MEA with this commitment: “Your Future. Our Focus.” MEA is dedicated to building relationships, educating their valued customers and providing exceptional customer service. Our goal is to be considered professional insurance advisors to individuals, families and businesses.
Our core value is the belief that a client who has systematically identified their risks, ultimately makes smarter business decisions and purchases insurance more effectively. It is a long-term strategy to control the cost of risk, not just the price of an insurance policy. Our approach to risk management has broad applicability across all industries and, as such, the process yields unique results for every client.
We take time to get to know our clients, understand their business strategy and their needs. In the long run, our goal is not just to sell insurance, but to work with clients to change their risk profile and reduce costs over time.
