DALLAS – FEBRUARY 3, 2022 – Integrity Marketing Group, LLC (“Integrity”), an omnichannel insurtech leader in life, health and wealth solutions, today announced it has acquired Osborn Insurance Group, an independent marketing organization (“IMO”) based in Springfield, Missouri. As part of the acquisition, John Osborn, President of Osborn Insurance Group, will become a Managing Partner in Integrity. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
“Osborn Insurance Group recognized that partnering with Integrity could help them grow, while retaining the best parts of their business and company culture,” shared Bryan W. Adams, Co-Founder and CEO of Integrity. “Family is an important part of their culture, which is why the Osborn team felt like a perfect fit with our Integrity family.

Osborn Insurance Group began providing Medicare Supplement products to seniors in 1993.

Osborn transitioned leadership to his son, John Osborn, in 2003. Today, Osborn Insurance Group helps independent agents and agency owners propel their businesses forward and has grown into one of the most prominent and respected IMOs in its region.
Through its Integrity partnership, Osborn Insurance Group will join a network of industry icons and legends.

I’m also looking forward to participating in the Integrity partner network. Integrity has created cohesion among legendary industry leaders who can now focus on growth and innovation together. The ability to share and communicate with those experiencing similar challenges and successes will be incredibly impactful to our business. Going forward, I see two directions for Osborn Insurance Group: bigger and better.”
Osborn Insurance Group will look to enhance its growth trajectory by utilizing Integrity’s omnichannel platform of insurtech resources.
