Local property and casualty insurance professional, Daniel McNamara recently celebrated 20 years with V.F. McNeil Insurance, a Trusted Choice® independent insurance agency. McNamara was a long-time employee and Vice President at the local insurance agency before purchasing it and becoming owner in 2012.

Since purchasing the local, 5th generation business, which was started by the McNeil family in 1886 and originated in New Haven, McNamara has led the agency with the same qualities that V.F. McNeil was founded on, integrity, honesty, and respect for others.

Throughout his leadership journey, McNamara has led the initiatives that advanced technology and product offerings in the agency through strategic partnerships. Enabling its team to be more efficient and to serve clients from any location, this new phase has also provided additional services to customers and has enhanced the customer experience. “I’m proud to work with such a dedicated and passionate team. Their commitment to putting our customers first and to living our company values has been integral to our success,” commented McNamara.

McNamara spent several years prior to the pandemic researching options and reviewing feedback before making final decisions on what the agency, its staff, and its customers needed and valued most. The transition was timely and helpful regarding how the pandemic disrupted business operations for many. “As a leader, he’s been the digital champion at V.F. McNeil, always considering how we can be more efficient as a team and how we can continue to deliver value to our clients no matter what tomorrow brings,” commented Carmine Montuori, Vice President at V.F. McNeil.
