Barbara Eckley has spent most of her life in the Kansas City area. She is incredibly fortunate to have raised 4 wonderful children and been blessed with 5 grandchildren. Being a part of Apollo’s insurance company from the very beginning has allowed her to see the exponential growth not only in the company but in the people who are a part of it.
Coming from a background of recruiting Barbara understands the most important asset of any organization is that of their human capital, for Apollo it is their insurance agents. One of the important functions that Barbara fulfills within Apollo is helping her managers continue to shape the vision and template that they use when selecting their future agents. Barbara has had a demonstrated passion for helping others throughout her career initially as a teacher, as an educational leader, and administrator. Selecting and grooming quality people who care about the people in the community are very important to her.
Healthcare and health insurance is such a vital part of everyone’s life and even more so with the changes that are taking place presently. Participating in and leading others at Apollo through the significant changes that the health insurance industry has undergone in the last eight years is a testament to her continued commitment to assist others with this important yet frustrating product. Barbara loves being able to help set the vision and course for this insurance company’s future.
