The Allan Block Insurance Agency in Tarrytown, NY was founded in 1959 by Allan M. Block. Through perseverance, long hours, and a dedication to providing his customers with expertise and personalized service, Allan quickly grew his agency within the county and beyond.
It was Allan’s commitment to excellence that set the standard for all of his employees, especially JoAnne Murray and Edward Schultz, who both joined the firm in the early 1970’s. After Allan’s passing in the 1980’s, and his wife’s in the 1990’s, JoAnne and Ed took the reigns of running the agency. With JoAnne heading up the Personal Lines division and Ed running Commercial Lines, Allan Block Insurance continued to grow. After more than two decades of partnership, Ed retired in 2017 and JoAnne became president of the company, supported by Margaret Black as VP of Operations, Neil Bush as VP of Personal Lines, and Laura Murray-Faggella as VP of Commercial Lines.
