J.L. Jones & Associates
is now IMA

Partnership to expand team’s Oregon employee benefits expertise


(Springfield, Ore. – June 1, 2022) IMA Financial Group, a company specializing in property and casualty, employee benefits, surety, workers compensation and personal insurance, has announced its partnership with Oregon-based J.L. Jones & Associates. The deal was effective June 1 and will expand IMA’s Oregon presence and employee benefits expertise.


Together with IMA partners k.p.d. Insurance, Bolton and Parker, Smith and Feek the companies will offer insurance expertise to the western U.S. states. J.L. Jones & Associates will continue its focus on employee benefits backed with IMA’s resources and vast specialty expertise.


“We’ve known the J.L. Jones & Associates team for many years and have seen firsthand what great allies they are to their customers,” said Kyle Hudson, President of k.p.d. Insurance. “Adding J.L. Jones & Associates to the IMA team is not only a good strategic growth move, but one that will positively impact employees, clients and the community.”


Post-partnership, J.L. Jones will be known as J.L. Jones Insurance Services, an IMA Company. The team has more than 30 years of providing excellent customer service to those looking for employee benefits solutions. The team at J.L. Jones Insurance Services will continue to serve its clients ranging in size from community rated fully insured groups to multi-state, self-funded programs, and reference-based pricing programs. J.L. Jones will work side-by-side with k.p.d Insurance in the Springfield office.


“IMA’s client-first mentality is just one of the reasons we decided to enter into this partnership,” said Jeff Jones, President of J.L. Jones & Associates. “We feel strongly that IMA’s core values and independent, employee-ownership structure are a great fit for us and we’re eager to build on our service capabilities, combined growth strategy and success.”


For over 30 years, J.L. Jones has specialized in employee benefit consulting. Being employee benefits-only, their team has specialties that have allowed them to scale into larger accounts in Oregon and western states. A big part of their success has been their client first philosophy.  Now, with the strength of IMA, J.L. Jones Insurance Services offers clients property and casualty insurance, workers compensation, retirement planning and more—while maintaining that same client first focus.
