Company History

Foy Insurance Group and its related corporations are a set of local insurance offices that are all principally owned by the Foy family and have been doing business in New Hampshire for over 100 years. We are hard-working "Yankee" businesspeople who expect growth and profitability from each of our locations. Our growth has been both internal - via aggressive new business activities - and external - via acquisitions. We have averaged almost one agency acquisition per year for the last 15 years.

Our CEO, James M. Foy, began his insurance career with the Fireman's Fund in Boston, MA, after growing up in the sleepy New England town of Newton, NH (just south of Foy Insurance headquarters in Exeter). He joined Bud Collishaw (his parent's insurance agent) at Elwell-Collishaw Agency in Exeter, NH, in 1968. Elwell-Collishaw Agency was originally founded by Colonel Rufus Elwell in 1893 and known as Elwell's Insurance Agency. Jim doubled the size of the agency within a year and, consequently, he was made vice president and acquired 50% ownership. The internal growth and acquisitions of small local agencies began then and continued on a steady pace until 1992. In March of that year, the agency group acquired the Poliquin Agency with its 3 offices in Nashua, Salem, and Manchester. The acquisition increased the size of the agency group by 75%, making Foy Insurance Group one of the largest agencies in NH.

A Commitment to Service

Today, Foy Insurance Group has offices in 3 states and over $70 million in written premium. Our organization structure is simple with centralized upper management, bookkeeping, and automation so that location managers, sales representatives, and service personnel can focus on being the best in their communities. We are committed to providing you with educated and licensed sales and service representatives, many of whom have professional insurance designations. Our computer system is linked to all our office locations, making client service simple and efficient.

The Foy family motto - from old English times - is "deeds not words." Our philosophy of doing business is true to this short but succinct statement - we care for our clients' needs and carrier relationships 7 days a week and 52 weeks a year.
