About Us

Our History
The founding firm was established in 1950 as a family-owned insurance agency operated under the name of Kresse Insurance in Clinton, Missouri. Mike Keith joined the firm in 1966 as a partner and later became sole owner and subsequently changed the name to Mike Keith Insurance, Inc. in 1978.

We currently have over 65 permanent employees and operate offices in Clinton, Warrensburg, Higginsville, and Odessa. We hold educational designations in the insurance industry, including the CPCU (Certified Property and Casualty Underwriter), CIC (Certified Insurance Counselors), CWCA (Certified Work Comp Advisor), and CISR (Certified Insurance Service Representative), and continue to require our team members to participate in continued education to stay up to date on the rapidly changing industry. In our life and health department, we employ brokers who also hold numerous benefits-specific professional designations.

National Resources, Locally Sourced
We strive to help our clients understand and select the right balance between affordability and quality of coverage.
As an independent agency of Keystone Insurers Group, we are part of the 4th largest privately held agency in the United States. This position in the marketplace allows us to enjoy greater purchasing power, preferred pricing, and financial arrangements with preferred vendors and carriers across the United States. We actively cultivate these relationships that allow us to negotiate aggressively on your behalf to obtain cost-effective proposals for property-casualty and employee benefits. Keystone strengthens agencies like ours with a community of like-minded individuals, consultative expertise, and access to national relationships that strengthen our offerings.
