Meet The Bailey Group

Our Story

Our journey to become one of the largest insurance and benefits firms in the State of Florida began 62 years ago.


The firm of Thompson Bailey Baker, established 75 years ago, was founded by John Thompson and Harold Ryman in St. Augustine, Florida.

In 1954, John Bailey becomes a partner in the business.

John's son, Mark, joins the firm after graduating from Vanderbilt University with a double-major in economics and business.


Mark Bailey, Sr. subsequently buys Thompson Bailey Baker's principal lines of business associated with health, life, annuities, retirement benefits, estate conservation, and financial products.

Shortly after, The Bailey Group is founded.

Start Your Career With Us

Help us change the way people feel about their insurance and benefits.

Great Benefits (Naturally!)

We currently provide benefits to over 300 group clients, so we understand how important benefits are when it comes to finding (and keeping) top talent. We provide medical, dental, vision, 401(k), life insurance and more to all of our full-time employees.

Growth Opportunities

We encourage every member of our team to make learning and personal growth a priority, whether that's through attending industry conferences or taking part in our in-house training sessions.

Flex Fridays

This is without a doubt our team's favorite perk. Every other Friday, as long as all work has been taken care of, we get to take a (paid) half-day to be with our family and friends and enjoy St. Augustine's beautiful weather.

Wellness Walks

Sitting is literally killing us. Well, we're not just going to sit around and watch that happen to us. We go out as a team every day and take a few laps around our building. It's a great opportunity for us to share ideas and think on our feet.

Work as a Team

Teamwork is an important part of who we are. We are always looking for new tools that can help us become a more efficient and informed team. For example: we began using Slack two years ago and it has transformed the way we work and made communicating with each other a lot more fun.
