HOLYOKE — The Dowd Agencies, a leading insurance provider serving New England for more than 120 years, has acquired the Wilcox Insurance Agency, founded in 1923. The two organizations have merged their operations and will now be known as Wilcox-Dowd Insurance. This acquisition adds two more branches in Westfield and Feeding Hills, expanding Dowd’s locations throughout the Pioneer Valley to eight offices.

“We are excited that Wilcox Insurance has joined our team,” said John Dowd Jr., president and CEO of the Dowd Agencies. “They have a terrific reputation and a very similar past to ours as a family-owned agency for almost 100 years. Their approach of putting customers first and providing high-level insurance advice and counsel is consistent with the Dowd Agencies’ approach.”

Wilcox Insurance Agency was founded as Westfield Mutual Insurance Agency in 1923 by Raymond Wilcox, who was eventually joined by son Malcolm, grandson Scott, and great-grandson Robert, who now leads the agency under the Dowd Agencies umbrella.

“It is special to see two family centered-agencies merge together, keeping their important values intact,” added David Griffin Jr., vice president of the Dowd Agencies. “We want to give people and businesses the opportunity to have that small-town feel with big-agency experience when it comes to their insurance and finances, and the two Dowd-Wilcox locations will allow us to do that in more communities than ever before.”

The offices in Westfield and Feeding Hills are full-service insurance agencies providing personal, commercial, wealth-management, and employee-benefits products and services.
