Owner/Chairman of the Board 517-783-2608 Licenses: Property & Casualty, Life & Health
After honoring a four-year commitment to the United States Air Force, Barker entered the insurance industry in 1962 at the John Hancock Company where he met his future business partner, Carl Weber. In 1982, Barker Weber Insurance Agency was founded and Weber later retired in 1998.
Barker Weber Insurance Agency originally focused on life, health, and personal lines, later adding commercial insurance in 1985. Since opening in 1982 where the agency consisted of Barker, Weber and a receptionist, Barker Weber has grown into a full service agency with over 20 sales and support staff.
Barker expects nothing but the best from his employees, expecting honest, fair practices with our clients. He expects our agents and support staff to treat the needs of our clients as if they were their own.
Barker often says to clients, “We don’t work for an insurance company, we work for you. We work on your side when you have a loss and follow through to see you get fair, prompt payment.”
Born and raised in the Jackson area, Weaver has been helping people insure their lives, families and businesses since 2007. In 2011 he joined the Barker Weber team and moved into the role of Chief Operating Officer. Weaver plays an active role in the Jackson community and surrounding areas. He resides in Horton, and in his spare time enjoys basketball, golf, hunting and fishing.
