MountainOne Insurance

STOCKBRIDGE, MASS. – MountainOne Insurance Agency is pleased to announce its expansion into the Southern Berkshire County market with the opening of the agency’s newest location at 31 Main Street, Stockbridge, MA on January 2, 2024.

With this expansion, MountainOne is also pleased to announce the appointment of two industry veterans to the agency: Tim Minkler and Libby Peyron. Both are longtime residents of Stockbridge, MA and well-known local insurance professionals. “We are excited to welcome Tim and Libby as our newest Mountaineers,” said Jonathan Denmark, President & COO, MountainOne Insurance. “Their vast experience and deep industry knowledge will be a great asset to our customers and to MountainOne. No one knows the Stockbridge and Southern Berkshire County market better than they do, and from insurance needs to community engagement, they’ll help to ensure we are meeting the needs of the local community in every possible way.”

Minkler and Peyron are delighted to remain in their office space where they can continue serving the Stockbridge community in this new role. “The Minkler family has served the Stockbridge community from this same office on Main Street since the inception of Minkler Insurance Agency in 1965,” said Minkler. “I’ve truly enjoyed carrying on the family legacy over the years. And as we enter the next chapter of the Minkler legacy, MountainOne is a perfect fit.”

Peyron agrees. “MountainOne Insurance delivers a small agency feel backed by a very sophisticated operation, and that’s just the right mix for the Stockbridge community. Furthermore, MountainOne’s culture is a great fit for us, and we already feel at home.”

MountainOne Insurance is the largest agency headquartered in the Berkshires in terms of clients under management, and with this expansion now employs over 60 employees across 7 locations throughout Berkshire County and the Pioneer Valley. MountainOne Insurance was also recently named Top Insurance Employer by Insurance Business America for the fourth time.

The new location sits across from the Red Lion Inn and adjacent to The Lost Lamb Patisserie/Snackerie. Denmark added, “We are proud to be situated right on Main Street amongst so many community gems, including the historic Red Lion Inn. Stockbridge is known far and wide for its art and culture, as well as its cozy, small town feel. It’s a remarkably welcoming atmosphere to live and work. We are experiencing that firsthand, and we’re excited to offer the same to the Stockbridge community as we welcome you into our doors.”
