In 1947, Mike O’Neil founded Beach & O’Neil Insurance Associates in Fair Oaks, CA. The agency has specialized in the salon and beauty industry for more than 60 years now and currently resides in Citrus Heights, CA. It was initially run by Mike and Jo O’Neil, with only one other employee to service their accounts, but has since expanded to include 10-19 employees.
O’Neil sold the agency to his sons—Christopher, Patrick, and Michael—in January 2004, at which point it evolved into a corporation: Beach & O’Neil Insurance Associates, Inc. Ultimate Image Insurance Services is a division of the family’s corporation which offers coverage to salon, barber and beauty professionals in four states: California, Texas, Ohio and Florida.
In addition to hair and beauty services, the corporation also provides commercial and personal lines of insurance. Its commercial department offers coverage to professionals working in construction businesses, automobile repair shops, tailor shops, and health food stores. Its personal lines department offers programs like homeowner’s protection, automobile protection, recreational vehicles and motorcycles insurance, umbrella liability, and more.
By expanding to include these additional agencies, the corporation’s premium volume has increased from tens of thousands to millions. According to the Sacramento Business Journal, it is one of the top 25 largest casualty and property insurance brokerages residing in the Sacramento area. Beach & O’Neil is licensed by the California Department of Insurance, and its programs are underwritten by an A.M. “A” rated insurance carrier.
