Thanks to the amazing fundraising efforts of EPBB President, Marc Baker, he was able to present Oregon Music Hall of Fame (OMHOF) with a big check in the amount of $20,000 towards future music education scholarships.
EPBB and President Marc Baker, Alissa Mishler and Ronni Phillips were thrilled to accept the Associate Member of the Year Award from the Oregon Restaurant & Lodging Association (ORLA) last night at their annual convention and hospitality awards. First time ever that this award has gone to an insurance agency. Thank you so much for the honor!!
For the 4th straight year, EPB&B has won The Oregonian's Top Workplaces in Oregon.
This award is especially important to us because it's all based on employee feedback. We owe all our success to the smart, innovative, and hardworking people that make up EPB&B.
We are so sad that we had to say "goodbye" to yet another of the original EPB&B partners, Neil Baker who passed away on Friday, June 24th. Former EPB&B President, Neil Baker, was born and raised in Portland and graduated from Grant High School and OSU. He entered the insurance industry out of college and took a sales position with Universal Underwriters before training with Safeco Insurance and joining the Mathieson-Baker Agency in the mid 1960's. In 1968 Neil Baker and Bill Baden joined Gordo...n Powell and Warren Elliott to form what is now EPB&B. Neil received Safeco Insurance "Lifetime Award of Excellence" prior to his retirement in 2000. He served on the Board of Directors of the Sellwood Boys and Girls Club and was an Associate Board Member for the Oregon Petroleum Association. He volunteered to deliver Meals on Wheels and worked with OSU Alumni Association and The Beaver Club. He was a class act and great man who will be sadly missed. Information on services to follow.
