Home » About Our Agency

Insurance is about more than your coverage. It’s also about experience, integrity, honesty, and attentive service—and we have that in spades.

Who we are.

Madison Collins Stephens Agency is committed to making your insurance needs a priority. We work to build long-lasting relationships with you and our communities focused on integrity, honesty, and attentive service. Through consultative advice and education, we empower you and our past, current, and future clients to better understand their insurance risks. We help provide the peace of mind you deserve.

What we do.

We offer an unparalleled insurance experience. We take great pride in the level of service we deliver to you at our agency. We’ll be there to assist you, whether you need help making a claim, receiving a payment, or simply understanding your insurance coverage. We know you and we know insurance, so you have peace of mind knowing that your insurance agency can help you with your insurance needs, no matter how big, little, unusual, or specific they are.

How we are different.

We are an independent agency, which means we can offer you a level of flexibility when it comes to your coverage that many others can’t. We’ve hand-picked the insurance companies we represent to offer you a variety of options to achieve a balance of price, policy, and service that works for you. Representing the top national and regional carriers, we’ll help you find insurance to fit your needs. There isn’t much we haven’t seen before with the years of experience we bring to the table, and you never know when that will come in handy.

Our History

Since our founding, our agency has seen some change, but it has never stopped growing. Thanks to our clients’ loyalty and the support of our community, we are now one of the largest independent insurance agencies in Licking County.

  • In 1955, our agency was originally founded by James L. Madison in downtown Newark, OH. Soon after, Bills Collins became a partner, changing the agency name to Madison-Collins Insurance.
  • In 1980, another partner, JP Stephens, joined the agency. The agency name was changed once again to Madison-Collins-Stephens.
  • In 1999, JP Stephens, Jr. and Brian Newkirk purchased the agency.
  • In 2003, Terry Miller became a partner.
