FORT WASHINGTON, Pa., May 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Patriot Growth Insurance Services, LLC (Patriot), one of the nation’s largest and fastest-growing insurance services firms, welcomes The Dougherty Company to their national platform. Based in Long Beach, Cali., Dougherty is a full-service insurance agency focusing on personal, business, marine and captive insurance solutions.
Founded in 1933 by Gordon Dougherty, the Dougherty team is highly skilled, knowledgeable, and trained in complex insurance issues, so they can respond to client needs promptly and accurately. They are licensed in 29 states and have clients nationally and around the globe.
“We are looking forward to providing our clients the richer resources and services available as a partner in a privately held national firm,” said Craig Dougherty, President of The Dougherty Company. “Our agents, account managers, and support staff will remain the same, and we will continue to operate from our current location in Signal Hill. All of us at Dougherty are excited to be part of a growing national platform within Patriot, while at the same time, working closely with Bowermaster Insurance Brokers, a highly respected Cypress, California-based regional broker.”
“I was ecstatic that The Dougherty Company joined Patriot, allowing us to partner with them locally,” said Adam Bowermaster, President of Bowermaster Insurance Brokers. “I have known and deeply respected Craig Dougherty, Joe Castro and the entire Dougherty team for many years considering we have worked in the same backyard. Our third-generation agency dating back to 1954 highly respects Dougherty, which dates to 1933. Those are some rich histories coming together to grow and strengthen the Southern California Patriot agency platform. Exciting times ahead.”
“Craig, Joe and the Dougherty team are the perfect Patriot partner, being culturally aligned and laser-focused on producing consistent organic growth,” said Steve Carroll, Senior Vice President at Patriot. “The team has already hit the ground running collaborating with the rest of our partners, while leveraging all the resources and support Patriot offers.
