Our Vision

To be thought of as a top choice for insurance in Connecticut
when you want to be sure you’re getting the right insurance from day one.

About Our Vision

At V.F. McNeil,
we always knew our mission was to treat people the way we would want to be treated. 
We always knew our team took the job of getting our clients,
the best coverage for their needs at a cost they could afford, very seriously
We've always been dedicated to providing our clients the support they need to manage the
changes and occurrences in life that affect their insurance. We've always been committed to supporting
the communities where our staff and clients live and work.

However, a true written Vision, one that inspired our official tagline...The right insurance from day one®,
wasn't born until 2020.  We started reviewing almost 15 years of feedback
from our clients, and this effort brought our team to one conclusion based on the collective feedback. 

It was frequently remarked, based on what these clients were not previously receiving before
they came to V.F. McNeil Insurance, that they felt like they finally have the right insurance. 

Whether it was because of now having a clear understanding of what they are paying for or how their coverage works,
or because of always receiving prompt service and response time, and periodic coverage reviews, or that we made the effort
to find opportunities for them to save, or that we helped them through a claim, and even that we treat them nicely,
 our clients expressed this feeling of satisfaction and confidence in their remarks. 

Our team is incredibly proud of this and is whole heartedly committed to continuing to provide our clients
with this experience so that going forward, V.F. McNeil Insurance will be thought of as
a top choice for insurance in Connecticut when you want to get....The right insurance from day one®.


Community Involvement

We are people living in your communities. Our kids may even go to school with your kids.  The health and growth of our community is important to us. That’s why we focus on people.  We focus on treating others the way we would expect to be treated, by helping our communities grow healthy and vibrant.  Our team works hard so we can serve our communities in the best way possible.

Since 1886, our hallmark has been long-term relationships with our clients and a responsibility and commitment to our community. There are many components to our community relationships and we strive each year to further develop these relationships as well as create new ones.  Below is a listing of the different organizations that V.F. McNeil Insurance provides support to.






Our History

Since 1886, when Virgil F. McNeil started the company, V.F. McNeil Insurance has been serving the property and casualty insurance needs of businesses, families, and individuals primarily in Connecticut, but also throughout the country.


Operating under the ownership of the McNeil-Sturgess family since 1886, the full-service, Trusted Choice® independent insurance agency transferred ownership in 2012 to Daniel McNamara, a long-time employee and Vice President at V.F. McNeil. Under the leadership of Mr. McNamara, the agency remains committed to the same level of service to its clients and its community for which the McNeil-Sturgess family and all of V.F. McNeil have become so well known for. This reputation has identified V.F. McNeil as a new model for independent agencies in the 21st century.
