Originally known as The Downey Brothers Market, and drawing on the talents of my grandfather Bill Downey, Sr., who partnered with Metropolitan Insurance Company; through the generations, my father, Bill Downey, Jr., continued the legacy that became known as Downey Insurance Group. I have worked over the last 30 years methodically and strategically to create the Downey Family of Companies as it stands today.

Being a third generation owner of this company did not come without hard work and dedication.  I received my Master’s Degree in Marketing from Nichols College, and pursued numerous opportunities for growth and expansion of Downey Insurance Group’s client base and business operations. The desire to help families, individuals, and my community; The Downey Family of Businesses has truly been a labor of love.
