Our Agency

Durango Insurance Professionals is well-recognized and respected as a locally owned business that packs a big punch in Southwest Colorado. Our Durango office is located at 1537 Florida Road, Suite 109, directly behind Bread Bakery.

It’s a fact – no one understands health insurance the way we do. Ken Bates founded Durango Insurance Professionals, Inc. in February 2003, after 18 years as Southwest Colorado Regional Account Executive for Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield. Greg Meyers was quick to join Ken, bringing with him 20+ years’ experience in the business, with focus on small and large group enrollment, and as a re-known claims resolution expert. Travis Bates enters the arena, specializing in individual, family and Medicare supplements, along with being a certified Connect For Health broker; and, Wendy Shipman brings her 15+ years of insurance industry knowledge and experience to the team.

Simply put, no one does insurance any better.
