The Great Depression of the early 1930's, made life in Western New York and across America a real challenge. That is when our founder, Quincy Petrella, started what would become today's Petrella Agency in a downtown Buffalo office location.
His vision in founding the agency was to offer financial security to Western New Yorkers by means of insurance for their families, automobiles, homes and possessions, and their businesses.
The agency grew in those early days through Quincy's persistence, hard work and dedication to always serving his customers with personal attention in a professional manner.
As the decades passed, his sons Donald and Arthur joined the agency following their military service in World War II. Together, with their father, they continued growing the agency to become one of the regions most respected and reliable insurance agencies.
Don and Art continued the work their father began through the 1960's, 1970's, 1980's and beyond until nearing retirement, they passed the agency management on to another family member, Tom Benevento, who leads the current management team. Tom and his staff still uphold the values on which the agency was founded.
Today, Petrella Agency continues the commitment of our founder, by providing financial security through insurance and other products to help you protect the people you love and the things that are important in your life.
