Paul Hering

Chief Executive Officer

Barney & Barney LLC

Almost exactly one year ago, San Diego insurance brokerage Barney & Barney and its CEO, Paul Hering, took a bold step toward the future. Barney & Barney, founded way back in 1909, decided to sell to and team up with Marsh & McLennan Agency LLC (MMA), a division of Marsh LLC, the world’s largest global insurance brokerage firm.

Today, with the new company expanding throughout the West, from Arizona and Nevada to Oregon, Washington and Alaska, “It really is a ‘best of both worlds’ story for our clients and people,” said Hering, who is not only Barney & Barney’s CEO but a senior executive of MMA.
