Our President and CEO, Joel P. Murray was given the opportunity to discusses Norfolk & Dedham’s future plans and its continued faith in its independent agency partners. This interview was featured in an article on Agency Checklists.

Proving that staying true to your roots can bring forth sustained success, the A-rated Norfolk & Dedham Group has been based in Dedham, Massachusetts since its inception almost 200 years ago. Founded in 1825, the insurer has remained a steadfast supporter of its local independent agency partners here in the commonwealth, where it writes approximately 80% of its business emphasizing its local roots with its “locally grown insurance” tagline.

Since 2017, Joel Murray has been the President & CEO of The Norfolk & Dedham Group. As the insurer looks to a post-pandemic future with a new modern headquarters in its hometown, the rise of remote work, and the increasing consolidation of the insurance agency marketplace here in the commonwealth, he was kind enough to chat with Agency Checklists about his thoughts on what makes Norfolk & Dedham a different kind of insurer, and why he is still optimistic about the future of the independent agency system, as well as the insurance industry in general in Massachusetts.
