Greylock Insurance Agency (GIA), based in Pittsfield, has purchased Roger Butler Insurance Agency (RBI), a long established, very successful independent insurance agency in Westfield. The principals of RBI, Roger Butler, Jr. and Clarissa Butler-Simone have agreed to stay on for a while to ensure a smooth transition for customers and employees.
Roger and Clarissa are the fourth generation of their family to run the agency. As they began looking towards the next step, they met with many potential suitors before agreeing that Greylock was the best choice. “I am so grateful for the customer and community relationships we have formed over the years together,” said Butler. “I wanted to make sure that the personal service and commitment to excellence Butler Insurance is known for continues without interruption. That’s one of the main reasons we have partnered with Greylock.”
Although RBI will officially become part of GIA, they will continue to operate separately until later in 2021. GIA will locate its 30 Court Street office into the larger, more centrally located 5 Court St. office on the town green that RBI currently occupies.
“We are absolutely thrilled to welcome the employees and customers of RBI to Greylock,” said Greylock Vice President, Lori Goodell. “The more we spoke with Roger and Clarissa about this merger, the more excited we became. Our shared culture, our approach to our work, even our carriers are a great fit.”
