Florham Park, NJ —This May marked an impressive milestone for regional general agency, Savoy Associates (SA), and President and CEO Don Savoy, representing 30 years of dedication and success in the insurance industry.
Don Savoy joined Savoy Associates in May 1985, and shortly thereafter in 1991, Savoy Associates was awarded its first general agency contract. Jim Lardiere, who is currently Senior Vice President, also joined Savoy Associates in 1991 to begin creating the model of what the company is today. Over subsequent years, Savoy Associates experienced tremendous growth, gaining market share not only throughout New Jersey, but also in New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Connecticut. What originally began as a small company based in Florham Park, NJ has grown into a comprehensive regional general agency, which also offers employer products and services, with over 100 employees throughout the company’s seven office locations.
Savoy Associates has continued to be successful, despite the numerous industry changes and business challenges over the years. Don Savoy attributes this to the fact that, "We really enjoy what we do here at Savoy Associates, and I am very proud to be associated with team members who are passionate, dynamic, and determined professionals. Over the years, the industry has experienced numerous changes but we have remained steadfast in our mission and have continued to invest in our people, technology, and infrastructure."
Changes and challenges have created business opportunities for this leading regional general agency, but their people have truly made the difference. "We have an outstanding team of professionals with great integrity, and we are proud to have employees who take ownership and accountability for their work. We strive to put power of our people to work for our business partners every day," explains Jim Lardiere.
While legislative changes continue to affect the industry, Savoy Associates works tirelessly to enhance their services and expertise to fulfill their company's mission to empower their people, broker partners, and carrier partners, and most importantly, to achieve new levels of success.
Now with over 40 true general agency contracts, seven office locations throughout the Northeast, and an extensive portfolio of products and services, Savoy Associates looks forward to many more years of continued success as a leading industry expert and reliable partner to brokers and carriers alike.
