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.
