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 founder, 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.  In recent years we have moved or opened new offices in Milford MA, Brimfield MA, Manchester NH, Pembroke NH, Tilton NH, Dover NH, Swansea SC and Scarborough ME.  In 2016 we were recognized as NH Business of the Year by Business NH Magazine.

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.

I just wanted to recognize one of your agents in the Milford office and the outstanding service that was provided to my wife and I as we moved from NH to MA. I have been a long time Foy client through the years and have enjoyed outstanding service from your Manchester branch, most recently working with Diane Berube. We recently relocated to the Marlborough MA area Diane in your NH office helped me to closeout out the NH insurances and referred us to John Niro in your Milford, MA office to help get our MA insurance initiated. Through the entire process John has been outstanding and has helped us make an easy, painless transition. He filled out all the RMV paperwork for us, met us at the registry to get our plates and address any issues that came up. It happened that one of our vehicles was purchased in MA a couple years back and the RMV wanted to charge us retroactive sales tax. John worked with the dealer we bought the car from to get the proper documentation to avert paying sales tax saving us around $1K. John drove to the dealership on our behalf, retrieved the paperwork went back to the registry to finalize the registration paperwork and then drove the vehicle plates and registration to my place of work in Westborough the next day. John’s efforts through the entire process were so far above and beyond what I imagined I wanted to bring his exemplary work to the company’s attention. This is exactly why I choose to stay with an insurance agent rather than go direct through the Geico’s and Progressives of the world. Keep up the good work! John Niro is a great face of your company!

I have been a client of Foy via the Manchester office for close to a decade. I have only experienced exceptional client service when working with my agent, Diane. She has not only been there to answer any questions or concerns regarding my auto policy, she is proactive in making sure I get the most practical and comprehensive use out of it! I regularly recommend Foy Insurance to my friends, family and colleagues! Colin

This client had their account transferred to Jeannette.... Our apprehensions quickly changed once we got to know our new agent Jeannette L. Pinard. Jeannette has serviced our account for many years which is why I say this letter is long overdue. We would like to tell you how Jeannette has done a superb job for us. She returns our calls promptly. If she doesn't have an immediate answer to a question she researches the answer and responds quickly. Through the years she has contacted us several times suggesting changes in our policy that would save us money after initiating the research on her own. It was always a wonderful feeling to save money and to know that Jeannette was working for us. We value Jeannette's guidance, patience, expertise and advice. Jeannette makes us feel very confident and trusting that we are not over or under insured. That is a very comforting feeling. Having Jeanette on your staff says great things about your company as well. You hire and are able to keep quality people. Jeannette is wonderful. With sincere gratitude, Mr and Mrs A.

Dan Mariotti has handled all of my insurance needs for the last 5+ years. The insurance products he provides have the best prices and are top quality. But over and above that, the service Dan provides is impeccable. Whenever I have a question or needed insurance, he has always been there to help. You won’t regret your decision to turn your insurance needs over to Dan.

Becky Towle and our Manchester office. It is so refreshing to do business with Foy, an organization that provides knowledgeable, professional individual service quickly. Recently we were in a minor car accident and we had to call our agent at Foy who gave us great guidance right away. ... We are obviously very satisfied with the level of service we received on this particular issue but it is also the knowledgeable staff who help put together a well thought out insurance plan that sets Foy Insurance apart from some of the other agencies I have used. Foy Insurance conducts business with a client-first mentality that I firmly believe is what builds a loyal customer base. I highly recommend Becky and Foy Insurance in general if you want a company that is going to stand by your side not only when things are going well, but more importantly, when things are not so well and you, the policyholder, need help the most. -Matt

Michele in Pembroke is the bomb! Always friendly, always helpful, and clearly has my best interests in mind. As a new resident to NH and a first time homeowner I had some anxiety over purchasing a home policy. Michele made it easy. I plan on moving my car to Michele as well. And if I had a boat I would move that too. Oh well maybe someday :) Thanks Michele!!
