Dan McNerney, Founder/Retired
"I have been so blessed in my career and life to have the partnerships and relationships I've had over the years that have enabled me to reach every goal in my Career. I am now able to reach some new goals and spend more time with family in the beautiful mountains of Colorado. Our company has seen such tremendous growth over my 36 years and I am proud to pass the torch to the Leadership Team that has spent their entire adult life building this company side-by-side with me. With the addition of the new state of the art training center in our home office, additional offices opening in several cities throughout the country, the career division doubling in size, the brokerage division at over 8,000 agents, an on-line training campus, and the best staff and support systems that genuinely care about the success of our agents and each other, 2014 and beyond is set to be more successful and ground breaking than anything we have ever seen!"

Kim Kaufman, Administrative Assistant-Financial Divison
I grew up in Trenton Missouri and moved to Columbia in 1990 to attend college.  I graduated with my RN degree in 1994 and worked as a cardiology nurse until becoming a stay at home mom.  I made a career change in 2000 and began working at the Barnes Group as a recruiter and assisted my husband Jeff with their intern program.  Currently I am Jeff's full time administrative assistant.  I assist agents in the Financial Division with licensing and case development.
I have been happily married to Jeff for 15 years.  We have a son Cooper, 14 and daughter Ellie, 9.  They keep us very busy with all of their activities.  I am very active in women's ministry at Woodcrest Chapel and love spending time with friends.  I also enjoy Mizzou sports, spending time with family, being outdoors at Blaze baseball games and dining with friends.

Bobby Richardson, Vice President of Sales & Marketing
I grew up in Milan, MO and after graduation went to Butler County Community College "BCCC" on a football scholarship. After returning from college I went to work at a local lumber yard for about 2 years.  During this time my mother bought a life insurance policy from an agent working with the Barnes Insurance Agency out of Trenton, MO.  I got to know the agent and was invited to interview with the owner of the agency and my career in the insurance business started.  That was in 1980 and I haven't looked back since!
There have been many changes in the business since 1980, but the honesty and integrity of the people that I work with has never changed.  I spent 15 years working in Missouri and opened up the state of Iowa and Illinios. Then in 1991 I moved to Columbia, MO and became Vice President for MMG, Inc.  I still to this day spend time outin the sales field and work with the career side of the business as well as with the brokerage division, SMS, talking with agents and training them on the greatest profession in the country with the greatest company in the country.  We are very proud of the fact that our company focus is on building relationships with agents, not just offering contracts to them.
I have been married to the greatest person in the world, my wife Debbie, for 30 years.  We have 2 boys one that's still in college at William Woods University in Fulton, MO and one that owns a construction company in Columbia, MO.
If you're looking to grow and expand your business this year give us a call or send me an email.

David McNerney, Vice President of Sales & Marketing
I grew up in Trenton, MO where I graduated from Trenton Senior High in 1982.  After my graduation in ‘82, I followed in my brother and father’s footsteps and became a part of a small hometown business that, at that time, was Larry D. Barnes Insurance Agency.  Within that agency, I worked into a management position that I enjoyed very much.  

In October of 1985, I married my wonderful wife, Susan.  Around that same time, I received a promotion, which allowed us to relocated to Lake of the Ozarks, MO.  Since then, we have been blessed with two awesome sons and a fantastic daughter.
