The President of The Bailey Group – Mark Bailey, Sr.
As President of The Bailey Group, Mark Bailey has built upon the foundation of a trusted local insurance agency and developed the company into a nationally competitive firm. The Bailey Group provides insurance, benefits and financial strategies to companies and employees across the U.S., while maintaining the local, personalized service model that sets them apart from the rest. Named one of the fastest growing companies in Northeast Florida by the Jacksonville Business Journal, The Bailey Group provides progressive solutions, using cutting-edge technology, strong carrier relationships and out-of-the-box thinking. Mark was voted the “Best of St. Augustine” Local Insurance Agent in the St. Augustine Record multiple years, and has been a member of the Million Dollar Round Table since 1985, with 14 years spent as a Top of the Table member which places him among the top 1% of agents nationwide.
Mark makes himself personally available to meet with any client. With a visionary leadership style, Mark sets his employees free to innovate and encourages them to build the same kinds of lasting relationships. The end result is a team of employees who are motivated to exceed their clients’ expectations. In addition to dedicated account support, The Bailey Group provides its clients with tools and services to achieve long-term goals together, such as wellness coordinators to help clients develop meaningful wellness programs.
Mark, along with nearly every Bailey Group associate, is involved in leadership roles and service projects within the community. Whether it is the Chamber of Commerce, the YMCA, the Flagler Healthcare Foundation, American Cancer Society, Community Hospice, Flagler College, or others, it is evident that The Bailey Group strives to fulfill its mission with vitality: “Life. You live it. We’ll protect it.”
Perhaps the tribute to Bailey from his longtime friend from school days at The Bolles School, Linden Ashby, sums it up best. He said, “Mark Bailey is a good man in a world where it’s really easy not to be. I’m proud to call him my friend. He shares his life, his love and his happiness, and we are all the better for it.”
