Brent Meeks

Brent Meeks has been an Insurance Agent for Twenty Five years and has been a part of Meeks Insurance Agency since July 1, 2003. Having the privilege to be part of this profession have provided me the opportunity to experience how an agency operates and responds to its customer’s needs as well as the devastating effects of a natural disaster upon an entire community. After a tornado practically leveled the city of Petersburg, Indiana in 1990, I learned how as an insurance agent I could ease the fears and uncertainty and contribute to the mental, physical and financial well being of my family, neighbors and community.

Brent Meeks holds certification of CIC. As a 25 year veteran of the insurance profession, Brent has worked as a front line agent, supervisor, mentor and owner.

Currently, I manage ISU Meeks Insurance Agency, a family owned and operated insurance agency. We provide hands on experience to our customers. Experienced since 1990, our company has grown to a full-service insurance agency. Currently, ISU Meeks Insurance serves the insurance needs of many residents in the Wabash Valley and surrounding areas working with individuals and businesses alike. Our office includes a state of the art computer system for the safe keeping of your personal and confidential records.

Beth Meeks

Beth has listed and sold real estate in Indiana and Illinois since 1984. After successfully producing at both proprietary and franchise agencies for 16 years, she wisely decided to open her own agency. Beth’s business plan was strategically designed to capitalize on the logical marriage between real estate and insurance. In May 2002, she boldly launched a real estate agency and a scratch insurance agency, simultaneously.

The agency has grown to 11 employees, a branch office in Princeton, Indiana, and has acquired 6 other agencies. They are currently in the process of their 7th acquisition which will provide for a 3rd location.

Beth feels that her primary role in the agency is to bring in new business for her agents and customer service representatives to estimate, engage, and manage. Beth offers professional real estate sales, as well as home, auto, life, health, commercial, farm, property, and casualty insurance. Beth Meeks defines herself as a professional sales agent in both insurance and real estate.
