Cross Insurance is a family owned insurance agency made up of a network of wholly-owned subsidiary insurance agencies throughout Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, and Rhode Island. Getting its humble beginnings in the home of Woodrow Cross in 1954, the company has since grown to become one of New England’s largest independent insurance intermediaries and the nation’s 33rd largest broker of U.S. Business, with over 40 branches and more than 800 employees.
Cross Insurance is engaged in retail insurance services which include marketing, selling, and negotiating the placement of property and casualty, life and health, bond and employee benefit insurance on behalf of various commercial organizations, institutional or governmental entities, as well as individuals and families.
Cross Insurance represents the region’s largest network of carefully selected suppliers which includes some of the largest national carriers in the industry, as well as New England’s leading regional insurance carriers. Cross represents a total of 150 insurance providers, which enhances the company’s ability to satisfy the varied insurance needs of major employers and individuals alike.
The Cross insurance business plan is centered on providing quality products at a competitive price. Knowledge and responsiveness, the foundations upon which the company builds customer service, are integral and remain top priorities. Cross strives to be trusted advisors in the industry, tailoring solutions to best fit its clients’ unique risk management needs.
Since the company’s founding in Woodrow Cross’ home, it has absorbed over 120 operations, effectively growing its footprint and impact on New England. Each acquisition brings along more premiums, more clients, and more knowledgeable and professional employees. The continual expansion teamed with the company’s drive to provide the greatest service possible is what has sculpted Cross Insurance into the company it is today.
The company’s motto, Where Security Meets Strength, is more than a slogan for Cross Insurance; it is a commitment to the values set deep in the company since its inception.
