Bill McClure, after leaving the Air Force, did his undergraduate work in business administration and completed his MBA program while working for Travelers Insurance Co. After Travelers Bill worked for Fred S. James for several years, and during this period developed an expertise in the fire suppression industry, setting up and managing the insurance program for this industry thru out the mid-Atlantic states. In 1986 Bill founded W.R McClure Insurance Services; this agency initially specialized in the fire suppression industry. Over time the McClure Agency clientele became more generalized and offered both commercial personal insurance to their clients thru out the northeastern states.
Dan Gilligan started in the industry in 1990 and in 2003 left his old partners to found Paradigm Insurance Services, also a general insurance agency, and with a focus on IT and media companies. Along the way, Dan obtained designations as an Accredited Advisor in Insurance, Certified Insurance Counselor, and Certified Risk Manager. Dan and Bill assisted each other over the years as friendly and non-competing insurance professionals, even at times sharing employees when that was needed, and in 2021 merged their businesses to form Connor-McClure Insurance Services, with the combined operation moving to the current location in Hampton, NJ.
Connor-McClure clients range from individuals and the smallest organizations to public companies, and our systems and approach is consistent in seeking to reduce overall cost of risk in a thoughtful and transparent way, and allow for no surprises. This process sets on our core business principles of integrity, honesty, empathy, creativity, enthusiasm, and clear and regular communication. We deal this way consistently with our four core audiences of staff, clients, carrier partners, and wholesalers/program managers.
