Megan McKay
Knoxville, IA

Megan has utilized her University of Iowa Business Degrees to have an impact in her hometown of Knoxville, Iowa. The McKay Insurance Agency not only provides personal and business insurance, but is also a leader in providing “silent sport insurance” for sporting events large and small. While McKay is active with silent sport insurance in all 50 states, the goal is to plant seeds locally for other companies to grow.

“We have normal insurance, such as home and auto,” McKay says, “but we also have this funky little division where we insure silent sports, such as bicycle clubs and triathlons. We provide coverage to organizers of non-motorized events.”

Megan attributes her agency’s continued success to the degrees she earned from UI’s Henry B. Tippie College of Business. “I felt great about my management background,” she says, “but I wasn’t as strong on the finance side. The MBA I received through the Executive MBA Program rounded that out.”

In addition to her insurance business, Megan and her partners have a passion for brewing their own beer and launched Peace Tree Brewing Company in Knoxville in 2009.
