About Us

ThompsonBaker Agency has been serving the St. Augustine community for nearly a century.


For the past nine decades, ThompsonBaker Agency has undergone many transformations, but one thing remains the same: A continued commitment to our clients and the people of St. Augustine.

Founded in 1925 by Harold Ryman and John Thompson, our agency began at a time when the Bridge of Lions was under construction and wealthy Northerners swarmed the Ponce de Leon Hotel. Generation after generation, we’ve grown from a two-man operation to St. Augustine’s most respected and well-known insurance and financial services company. Today, the original Thompson-Ryman Agency is known as ThompsonBaker Agency and continues to serve the residents and businesses of the Nation’s Oldest City. Some of our long-term clients include Flagler Hospital, Arnett Heating & Air Conditioning, A.D. Davis Construction, Marine Supply & Oil Company and Flagler College. We don’t just work with the community. We work for the community. A core value of the ThompsonBaker Agency is continued civic and philanthropic work. Our past and current team members include two city mayors, Flagler Hospital trustees, Rotary International and Kiwanis International presidents, Boy Scout leaders and Chamber of Commerce board members. At ThompsonBaker, we are proud of our rich history and even more excited about our bright future. Whether it’s staying up on the latest technology or continuing to build strong relationships within our community, ThompsonBaker looks forward to another 90 years serving the great people of St. Augustine.

Agency principals today are proud of their history and even more excited about their future. Partners Matt Baker and Dan Alexander, both born and raised in St. Augustine, continue to build upon the agency’s history while looking for new ways to grow, to expand their offerings and to keep up with technology. Alan Bratic, Greg’s son-in-law, who is partners with Greg on the financial services side of the agency, is a Flagler College graduate and a native of Croatia; he brings an international savvy to the agency’s services that enhances the insights of the local partners. ThompsonBaker is well-known as an agency that gives back to the community through a variety of civic and philanthropic organizations. On staff at ThompsonBaker, through the years, have been two mayors, multiple Flagler Hospital trustees, Rotary and Kiwanis presidents, Boy Scout leaders, Chamber of Commerce board members—and the list goes on. “It’s a very exciting time for us,” Matt Baker says. “This year we’re celebrating our 85th anniversary in style, with an updated logo and website, some new services, and lots of real gratitude for the years of hard work and focus that made this company what it is today. There could never be a ThompsonBaker that didn’t honor its heritage. But there will also never be a ThompsonBaker that doesn’t value its future. It’s a fantastic place to be.”
