Whether it’s personal or commercial insurance, what customers want is pretty simple. They are looking for a company they can trust with employees they feel always act in the best interest of their family or business. They want a knowledgeable partner and a firm with team members who are experienced. And in this day and age, while personalized service may not always be expected, it’s surely a benefit that creates long-term loyalty.

At Perkins-McKenzie Insurance, we deliver. Maybe that’s why we’re one of the oldest, privately-owned insurance firms serving the Greater Baton Rouge Area.


A long history of service

Our agency started in 1950 as a partnership between H. Leslie McKenzie & Verdie Reece Perkins in a small office on Florida Boulevard. The two men worked hard over the next three decades building relationships and growing the business through attention to detail and dedicated customer service. The two partners retired and the agency was acquired by new owners in 1983. By 2005, all employees owned a percentage of the agency.

Employee-owned makes a difference

Clients that work with an employee-owned insurance agency notice an immediate difference. You’ll find the group at Perkins-McKenzie has a vested interest in your satisfaction. We are a local team, dedicated to excellent customer service with a personal touch. In fact, our agents are real people who take the time to get to know you, your family and your business so they can make the best insurance recommendations for your unique situation.

No risk is too small or too complicated and we take pride in finding solutions to any risk we are presented.
