Bill Grinnell, President, Webber & Grinnell
Webber & Grinnell is one of the largest and most respected insurance agencies in Western Massachusetts. Their roots can be traced back to 1849, when A.W. Thayer opened an insurance agency in Northampton.
In 1973, after a long history of mergers and acquisitions, Fred Grinnell and Gordon Woodward combined their agencies to form Woodward and Grinnell. When Fred retired in 1998, he sold the business to his son, Bill, and long-time employee Rich Webber.
Bill became sole owner of the agency in 2013. Webber & Grinnell currently serves over 5,000 automobile and homeowner policyholders, and insures nearly 900 area businesses.
