Get to know Bruce Whiting
Bruce Whiting started Whiting Insurance Agency in 2001, and has been in the insurance industry since finishing school at Colby College in 1989. He started with a large national insurance carrier in Albany, and in 1991 he went to the agency side and joined a large agency in Catskill. Then in 1995, he was hired to run a small insurance agency in Coxsackie.
Bruce realized his lifelong dream of owning his own business during the summer of 2001 when he started Whiting Insurance Agency on Route 9W in Coxsackie, NY. Starting an insurance agency from "scratch" is not the norm in the industry, yet Bruce was confident in his plan and that success would soon follow, despite a newly renovated office and mortgage, three full-time employees, and not a single client.
By 2006, Whiting Insurance Agency had opened a second office located on Route 9W in Glenmont, with the same plan of attack and the same challenges as in 2001 - with a newly renovated office, another employee, and again, not a single client.
Today, Whiting Insurance Agency has two successful office locations and is thriving in an industry in which many people equate home and car insurance to the word "hassle" and seem to go to great lengths to avoid even thinking about.
Bruce's plan and Whiting Insurance Agency's goal were - and remain today - one and the same: to be the best provider and advisor in the USA of home and car insurance. Constantly pushing the technology envelope and re-defining the over-hyped word service, Whiting Insurance Agency has carved out a clientèle that values price AND coverage protection delivered personally. Bruce is blessed to have wonderfully talented and dedicated employees who have worked with him since 1995.
Bruce and his wife Michelle reside in Coxsackie with their three teenage children: Chris, Kim, and Jack. Michelle is an elementary school teacher, and their family loves to ski and spend time at the lake when not playing/spectating in baseball, basketball, soccer, softball, and field hockey. They also love the Boston Red Sox (as did their parents and their grandparents)!
Bruce and the entire staff at Whiting Insurance Agency look forward to earning your trust today!
