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
When I remember growing up watching my father, I realize that insurance has always been a part of my life. As a Coughlin, it’s a natural progression. John Coughlin, my dad, followed his father into the insurance field. He founded Coughlin Insurance Services in 1947. I remember watching him head out to meet a client at their home armed with his brief case, rate books and more paperwork than today’s agents see in a month. I always knew he worked hard to provide for us, but I also knew it was about much more than earning a dollar. John Coughlin has a passion for helping people and that passion is something he’s still exercising every day. It’s a passion that’s contagious, and it’s spread throughout the agency. Dad has always fostered that familial feeling among every employee and client, treating people with respect and genuine concern. It’s the personality of our agency. We all understand and embrace the philosophy that personal service requires real people…people willing to make themselves accessible.
While computers have made our job easier and streamlined the process, we still take the time to make house calls…and we still love helping people. It’s the legacy that my father has built and one that I’m proud to continue at Coughlin Insurance Services. I hope our website provides plenty of helpful information…and I hope you call or visit us soon!
