WTPhelan Acquires J. Henry Quinn Insurance Agency

Posted in Personal Insurance

CAMBRIDGE, MASS – WTPhelan is pleased to announce the acquisition of the J. Henry Quinn Insurance Agency of Cambridge, MA.  The purchase agreement is effective as of September 15, 2012.  

The Quinn Agency, most recently run by James H. Quinn, was located at 2322 Massachusetts Avenue and founded in 1930.  The Quinn Agency and WTPhelan Agency have been neighbors in Porter Square since 2001, but these two businesses have cultivated a strong professional relationship for nearly 5 decades.  J. Henry Quinn Insurance Agency had been previously sold to WTPhelan when James Quinn’s father owned the firm.  He subsequently approached Francis Phelan to sell the agency back to him, which Francis did; therefore, this 2012 purchase brings the Quinn Agency back under the WTPhelan corporate family for a second time. 

Personal insurance customers of J. Henry Quinn Insurance will now have their policies handled right down the street from the former Quinn office, at WTPhelan’s Porter Square location – 1812 Massachusetts Avenue. Commercial insurance accounts will be serviced in WTPhelan’s Arlington Center branch located at 645R Massachusetts Avenue.

 “We have known Jimmy Quinn for years.  In fact, our long-time treasurer Sandra Lagrega first met him in the 1960’s,” said Robert Ramsey, the Agency’s Vice President.  “We wish Jimmy all the best in his retirement, and welcome our newest customers to our Porter Square location.”
