Adams, co-founder and CEO of Integrity Marketing Group. “Derek and Denise have built an impressive business from top to bottom. By tapping into the resources Integrity offers, they can now take their agency to an entirely new level of success.

“Insurance is such a rewarding career,” Derek Barnes said. “It’s easy to love what you do when it’s focused on helping people. It was obvious from our first interaction with Integrity that they, too, are all about helping customers, agents and partners, which makes this the ideal partnership for us. We couldn’t ask for a better opportunity to secure our legacy and take care of our employees, who are key to what we do. I’m so proud that D&D Insurance is partnering with Integrity. We can’t wait to serve more Americans together.”

“We have found that by putting the best interests of our clients first, it works out well for everyone,” Denise Barnes said. “Integrity operates the same way to grow its business, and truly values the same things we do. Offloading our back-office responsibilities will free us up to focus on what matters most: ensuring more Americans have the coverage they need. I couldn’t be more excited for what the future will bring with Integrity, as I know it’s only going to get better.”
