E.C. Cooper is an independent insurance agency. What does it mean to be an independent insurance agency? It means our team works with more than fifteen top-notch insurance companies to find you the best insurance package. It means our team will look for the right coverage for YOU … at the most competitive price.

E.C. Cooper was established in 1908. For more than 100 years, we have been protecting your assets with personal insurance (auto, home, RVs, boats, etc …) and business insurance. That’s a lot of experience! What does that mean for you? It means that we can be your trusted insurance consultants.

The E.C. Cooper team is made up of dedicated agents, committed assistants, and two owners who are involved in the daily operations of the agency.

We invite you to come in and speak with our staff to see how we can best serve you. To learn more about us, please read our bios below.

Doug has nearly 40 years in the insurance industry! Doug has been with E.C. Cooper since 2005, and he is an owner – along with Mike Stamp — and vice president. He spends his day managing the financials, doing marketing, assisting the staff as they help clients, and making recommendations to clients. In fact, working with the clients and making those recommendations is what he most enjoys. “I learn something new every day and, in insurance, there are no two days alike!”

I help clients and prospects understand what coverages they need to best protect their assets, quote new and existing businesses, service current customers, review renewals and market to the area.” Kelsey also enjoys the relationships that she has with her co-workers as they work as a team to meet clients needs. “Our clients truly do feel like friends and that’s what I love most about this job.”

Julie Wilbur

She is a customer service representative — preparing quotes for current and potential clients, making policy changes, answering questions — plus she does the bookkeeping, accounting, payroll and HR. “I like being able to help my clients. I feel accomplished when I complete a project for a client or when I write a policy that is hard to place. Sometimes I have to think outside the box and it feels great when I am able to meet a client’s need. I also enjoy helping clients through the claims process, reassuring them that they are being helped. I know you can’t make everyone happy, but my goal is to try.”
