Local, relationship, service, these are the core values that have made Elliott, Powell, Baden & Baker a leader in the insurance industry for over seventy years.
EPB&B insurance is a full-service multi-line business based in Portland, Oregon. We offer Personal Lines, Commercial Lines, Bonding, Life, and Health coverages to customers in the Western U.S. with the bulk of our business generated in Oregon and Washington.
Founded in 1950 by Warren Elliott, Elliott Insurance was a small local independent insurance agency. With the addition of Gordon Powell several years later, Elliott Insurance transformed into Elliott and Associates. In 1969 William Baden from USF&G and Neil Baker from the Mathiesen-Baker Agency joined, forming the partnership of Elliott, Powell, Baden, & Baker. “I am grateful to have known the four founding partners in my youth. My Dad continually inspired me through his hard work, dedication to his customers and support of the community through his philanthropic work,” Baker says of his father Neil, a Safeco Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, one of only three in Oregon history to receive the award.
Building relationships and providing outstanding customer service is something that sets EPB&B apart from other insurance agencies. To ensure that we attract and retain strong team members, EPB&B believes in providing a collaborative work environment, excellent benefits, creative incentives, and the opportunity to give back to the community. The result being service to our customers that is of the highest quality.
The hard work and commitment to excellence have paid off, resulting in EPB&B being recognized as a multi-dimensional leader in the industry by the following local and national organizations.

“I am so grateful to work with a team of people who see the big picture - helping each other, our customers and our community is more than a job, it is something we value as a way of life,” Baker says.
At EPB&B, we are continuously striving to improve the way we do business while staying true to our core values of local, relationship, and service. We are proud of the work we do and we are grateful for the opportunity to continue to build relationships with our customers, our carriers, and our community.
