Eastern Shore Associates was founded in 1986 when a group of three smaller independent agencies decided to pool their resources to better serve their customers. The focus was to develop "big agency" capabilities, while maintaining the "small agency" approach to conducting business by helping their neighbors. In 1991, ESA became an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan) company, having the employees own a portion of the company. In January of 2009, ESA became 100% proudly owned by its employees. Today, Eastern Shore Associates has grown into an organization with over 70 insurance professionals operating from 9 branch offices throughout central New York. Our size allows for significantly greater access to insurance markets. We now work with over 30 insurance companies, giving us the ability to find the best solution to each of our customers' insurance needs. Eastern Shore Associates offers a full line of insurance products and will be there when you need us most.
