In 2005 Casey graduated with a finance degree and began working as an underwriter for some of the largest construction companies in the world. After a thorough training program, Casey was recruited by a regional bond company to learn how to underwrite Main Street construction companies. As his knowledge grew working with both mega and Main Street construction companies, Casey ventured to grow a surety department at an Independent Insurance Agency. Within 3 years Casey had the opportunity to buy his own book and start his own Independent Insurance Agency. Within 5 years he and his team had quadrupled in revenue, awarding his agency multiple awards including Kansas City’s Fast 100 Award, which is given to the fast growing companies in the metropolitan area across all industries.
Outside of simply being an underwriter, producer, and agency owner, Casey has held every officer position with the Surety Association of Kansas City including President in 2016. In 2017 Casey was also named one of the Rainmakers in the industry by Ingram’s Magazine. This is only awarded to the highest producing agents in the metro area.
In 2019, Casey sold his interest in his agency and at the same time was presented an opportunity from POWERS Insurance & Risk Management he could not pass up. He will now head up the POWERS Construction Division as their National Director of Construction Services.

Like many industries, COVID-19 will change how insurance policies are written. Communicable disease/viruses like the COVID-19 are typically excluded in most insurance policies, so we believe the SBA PPP loan forgiveness program is currently the best path forward to recovery for many small businesses. Unfortunately, the PPP loan is not adequately structured for educational […]
Jewelry Insurance should be a standalone policy, separate from your homeowners insurance. Having a separate policy, ensures that your homeowners insurance will not increase if you file a claim.
