Quinton Insurance opened its doors for the first time in May 1996 as a scratch insurance agency in Rochester, New York, which basically means we had no clients. Quinton Insurance was founded by Gordon Quinton, an ex-tennis professional who had to retire early due to a career-ending knee injury. I found my way to the insurance industry like most – by accident.
I remember my first day like it was yesterday. I rented this tiny 100 square foot office and these huge filing cabinets and I remember asking myself, “How am I ever going to find enough clients to fill these things?” When I started there was no Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. There was just the old-fashioned phone book. I would wake up every morning; open the phone book and start calling business owners for eight hours a day asking them if I could save them money on their business insurance. At night, I would go home and have dinner with my family and then I would start again, this time calling homeowners to ask them if they wanted a quote on their car and home insurance. I did this religiously for the first three years. People ask me all the time, “How did you discipline yourself to make all those calls every day?” It was very simple, I needed to feed and take care of my family.
Today Quinton Insurance and its dedicated team are proud to protect more than 10,000 businesses and families; we have grown into one of the largest insurance brokerage’s one client at a time.
Our mission statement is pretty simple: “To take away the pain! Insurance can be painful from not having the right protection, a claim being denied, billing nightmares, annoying audits, endless voicemail, if we don’t take away the pain every single day someone else will!
We work hard every day to make sure that every call to Quinton Insurance is the “best call of your day.”
