Hinsdale, IL, November 19, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Mavon Insurance is proud to celebrate its 100th anniversary as a family owned managing general agency representing many of the industry’s most respected insurance companies.
In 1902, Girard Aloysius (G.A.) Mavon began his career traveling by bicycle to sell insurance door to door. He founded his own managing general agency, G.A. Mavon & Co., in 1916, referring to the business as “The Service Built Agency.” P.G. (Jerry) Mavon, Jr., who currently serves as Chairman, joined the company in 1966 and in 1991, son Philip G. Mavon III, the fourth generation of Mavons and current President, entered the business – making 2016 not only the company’s 100th anniversary but also the 50th and 25th service anniversaries, respectively, for Jerry and Phil.
No milestone is achieved without hard work and dedication and like their predecessors, Jerry and Phil Mavon have kept the needs of their clients first and foremost while adapting to changing markets.
G.A. Mavon & Co. added Gamco Premium Finance Co. to its family of companies in 1967 to provide agents and brokers with in-house premium financing. Mavco Insurance Agency, an independent agency, was founded in 1972.
All Mavon companies have called Hinsdale home since 1979 when Jerry seized an opportunity to purchase the Mavon Insurance Center property from Charles Comiskey II, former owner of the Chicago White Sox. As a tribute to his beloved Chicago Cubs, Jerry immediately covered the west side of the building with ivy to resemble Wrigley Field.
G.A. Mavon & Co. strives to provide the best insurance products and the finest client service – principles upon which the business was founded a century ago. Jerry and Phil continue to value everyone who has contributed to the company’s success – their employees and clientele – and look forward to serving their clients and community for generations to come.
