Cross Insurance, a subsidiary of Cross Financial Corp., and one of the largest independent insurance providers in the Northeast region, announces today that it has rebranded with The Lougee Insurance Agency in Duxbury, Massachusetts.
The Lougee Insurance Agency, formally established in l967, has grown to provide insurance protection for thousands of individuals and businesses in Duxbury and surrounding South Shore communities. In January 2012, Lougee Insurance merged with the Corcoran & Havlin Insurance Group, a division of Cross Insurance. The combination of the two firms has further strengthened Lougee Insurance’s ability to provide customers with superior insurance service and risk management advice. Lougee is now one of the premiere insurance agencies in the South Shore and a consistent recipient of the prestigious Five Star Insurance Agency Award of Distinction.
“This first-class organization is a well-known and long-standing agency in Duxbury and the surrounding South Shore communities, said Jonathan Cross, President of Cross Insurance. “We are extremely pleased the Lougee team has joined Cross and we look forward to having them as part of our leadership team.”
With the recent hire of longtime Duxbury resident and financial services professional Ed Rovegno as Risk Management Director, Cross Insurance – Duxbury will become the flagship personal insurance advisory to the Duxbury region.
Rovegno will serve as the leader of the Duxbury location and will work closely with the agency’s service team, Christine Lougee Smith and Lori Regan. They will continue to lead its new and existed client base as the agency has done since l967.
“We are looking forward to the future and the growth opportunities that this new relationship will bring,” said Ed Rovegno. “We believe this rebranding with Cross Insurance will only enhance our focus to offer products and services for new and existed clients that we have provided asset protection for many years. We are particularly excited to offer successful families and individuals with customized Private Client insurance programs.”
“Our new brand identity marks another milestone for the Lougee Insurance Agency legacy,” said George Doherty, President of Lougee Insurance and the Corcoran & Havlin Insurance Group. “Since we partnered with Lougee Insurance 10 years ago, the agency has been a tremendous resource in providing the tools necessary for us to advance our organization forward, which has resulted in geographic growth in our unique sector of Personal Risk Insurance.”
Since its founding in 1954, Cross Insurance has grown extensively through the acquisition of more than 120 insurance agencies throughout the Northeast. The company now has over 1,000 employees operating out of offices in Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Florida.
Cross Insurance has a proud tradition of serving clients, both large and small, with the honesty, fairness, and diligence they deserve.
