Miller Loughry Beach resulted from a merger of Miller & Loughry and Beach & Gentry in July 2008. Miller & Loughry was founded as the Miller Agency in 1949 by Edward E. (Ebby) Miller, Jr. In 1988 his son Eddie Miller, III formed an alliance with Andrea Loughry of the Maples & Loughry Insurance Services, Inc., to purchase the Miller Agency from his father and form Miller & Loughry Insurance Services, Inc. Ken Halliburton became a partner in 1990. The Beach Insurance Agency was founded in 1972 by Ted Beach. In 1990, Ted purchased the Gentry Insurance Agency and changed the name to Beach & Gentry Insurance. The firm's approach is centered around people. Key business strategies the firm has employed since inception still shape our focus today:
- Focus on consumers who desire a deep relationship with their advisor.
- Provide distinctive service and effective advice.
- Offer a full range of insurance solutions, including personal, business and employee benefits, as part of a comprehensive approach to overall wealth management.
