The History of Our Agency

1929 - Reagan Companies was founded.

The year was 1929. Wall Street was crashing. America's economy was heading into a depression. Despite a bleak fiscal forecast, one man had the vision to start a company that would help protect his neighbors. That man was James F. Reagan of Marcellus.

1939 - Mary B. Reagan took over the agency after the passing of James F. Reagan.

Just ten years after starting the business, James F. Reagan died unexpectedly in an accident. His wife, Mary B. Reagan, a former teacher in Marcellus' one-room schoolhouse on East Hill, didn't let a single ball drop. She did what she had to do for her young family and took over the business, running it exactly as her husband had.

1963 - James P. Reagan, one of Mary B. Reagan’s son, took over the agency.

Jim Reagan continues to grow the business.

1978 - Mike Reagan joined the agency as President.

Mike Reagan, Jim Reagan’s oldest son, joins the agency only days after his college graduation.

1986 - Ned Reagan joined the agency as Commercial Sales Manager and Vice President.

Ned Reagan, another one of Jim Reagan’s sons, joins the agency after three years in Aetna Casualty’s Executive Training Program. With Ned’s entry the agency starts to focus more on Commercial Insurance.

1991 - Rick Reagan joined the agency as Financial Services Manager and Vice President.

Rick Reagan, Jim Reagan’s youngest son, joins the agency as Financial Services Manager and Vice President. Rick is now President of Reagan Companies Asset Management, Inc. (RCAM).

2018 - Sean Reagan, Mike Reagan's son, joins the firm.

Sean is the fourth generation of Reagans to be part of the firm.

Through the years as the firm grew additional departments have been added to the agency including Commercial Lines, Wealth Management (RCAM), Group Benefits, Bond, Risk Management & Claims and Personal Lines.

Today the Reagan Companies continues to grow and presently has more than 60 employees in our Syracuse, NY office. We are a national award winning agency having won the MarshBerry Pinnacle Awards three times, most recently in 2018.
