Nicole Anderson began working at Davies Barry Insurance in June 2004 as a Personal Lines Customer Service Representative, quickly becoming an Agent the following February. She graduated from University of Idaho with a Bachelor’s of Science in Elementary Education.  Having decided to take a different career path after graduation, she found herself with a career at Davies Barry Insurance and she hasn’t looked back.  Ketchikan has been home to Nicole since 1982 and she couldn’t imagine a better place to raise her young family. Outside of the daily grind she can often be found with her family and friends, on their boat fishing (but not always catching!). Being a busy mom of 3 she doesn’t always have much spare time, but when she can find a moment to herself she also enjoys reading and learning to quilt. Nicole is a key player to our Personal Lines team. Her dedication, loyalty and experience are just a few of the many qualities that make her an excellent Agent!

We are deeply saddened to announce Jim Barry’s sudden passing on Sunday, August 26, 2018. As many of you know Jim’s life was devoted to Davies-Barry Insurance, being a second generation owner and following in his father’s footsteps. Jim had great plans for our firm and we will be seeing his vision through. Our clients remain our utmost priority as our key leaders pair with Jack Davies to see us through this transition. We will continue to carry on the legacy that has been in Ketchikan for over 100 years. Our sincerest thoughts are with his wife, Margaret Barry, the Barry family, friends of Jim, and our community.

James R Barry moved to Ketchikan in September 1985 after accepting a position in the Personal Lines Department. After learning things on the personal insurance side Jim moved into the Commercial Lines arena. In 1987, Margaret, who is now his wife, relocated from Seattle. She began working for Ketchikan General Hospital, and continues her path with PeaceHealth. While they don’t have any children of their own, they are blessed with & very proud of their three nieces and one nephew, ranging in age from “almost 5” to 29 years old. They enjoy spending time and getting energized when they get together. In 1998 Jim became an Officer of the Corporation, with ownership interest. He currently holds the President position. Jim has served 10+ years on the Alaska Independent Insurance Agent and Brokers Association. After holding various posts in the Association, he served as President in 2007. He has also had the pleasure of serving as a board member on several local associations, and is a member of the Elks. Jim enjoys living in our close-knit community of Southeast Alaska. Because of our sense of community, we can come together on issues that affect us and our future. He also enjoys the outdoor opportunities afforded us here. When the weather doesn’t cooperate, he will utilize use that time to read - usually something about sports, history or politics.
