A history of insurance services to the people of New Hampshire and Vermont

The Insurance Center traces its roots in New Hampshire back over 100 years. During the early to mid 1900’s, the R.W. Michaud Agency and its predecessor, the Del Cushion Agency, were prominent insurance agencies in Claremont, NH, located at 52 Tremont Square.

Robert Sammon joined Robert Michaud as a partner in 1980, forming Michaud & Sammon Insurance, Inc. Bob Sammon became president in the decade that followed, after Bob Michaud’s retirement. To accommodate its growing staff, the agency needed more space and relocated to its own building at 107 Broad Street in Claremont.

Bob was joined by Richard “Dick” Bates in 1987, and together they grew the business over the next three decades. Dick, who ran the Newport office until 2015, remains very loyal to The Insurance Center and is an advocate for The Insurance Center in his retirement

Supplementing the recent years’ geographic expansion opening additional offices in Newport and Keene, NH, The Insurance Center also acquired the books of business of the Hoidahl Insurance Agency (Newport, NH) in 1990 and the Thompson Insurance Agency (Claremont, NH) in 2013.

Today, The Insurance Center has grown to become one of the leading insurance agencies in western New Hampshire, serving clients in both New Hampshire and Vermont. We directly represent numerous top-rated insurance companies, and have access to countless others through our quality brokerage relationships. Our capable and experienced staff of 19, many of whom have been with The Insurance Center for decades, consistently strives to provide our clients with knowledgeable advice and quality insurance protection at the most competitive rates we can find.
