Our Executive Team
John M. Coughlin
Among the Coughlin family, working in the insurance field is a tradition. It was only natural that John (“Jack”) Coughlin would follow in his father’s footsteps. After learning the ropes while working for an agency in New York City and Larchmont, Jack founded Coughlin Insurance Agency in 1947. Jack’s passion for the industry led him to many leadership positions, including a stint as President of the Independent Insurance Agents of Westchester. Jack has been recognized as the agent of the year. He’s been selected by multiple insurance companies to serve on their agent’s panels, invited to speak at meetings on issues ranging from computers to running an effective insurance agency. Today, Jack Coughlin is still in the office every day. He’s active in and honored by local civic associations and enjoys serving in his Church and in Scouting.

A Personal Message from the Owner
John Coughlin, (my father) founded Coughlin Insurance Services in 1947. If he instilled one thing in me and our family, it would be to leave any situation that we come across, better than it was. As principal and owner of Coughlin Insurance services it has been this original goal and my career story, that has taught me that one’s integrity trumps everything else.
My belief is to “specialize” and work in areas or industries where we can make a real impact. “It is far better to do a few things well, than to undertake many good works and leave them half done”. When we become well versed in something, our enthusiasm shines through, our answers are quick, and our customers are happy.
We promise to tell you up front when we feel we can improve the situation at hand, and if we can’t …we will do our very best to steer you in the best direction we know.
“We will strive not to just be a success ourselves…but rather to be of true value to our customers” for it is that sincerity in our work, that will ensure that we continue to bring our best selves to any opportunity that we earn.
