Hickey & Hickey Inc., was originally started in 1957 by Raymond F. Hickey Sr. with offices on John Street in the heart of the Insurance District in downtown New York City.
Mr. Hickey Sr. received extensive training with a large regional broker who was ultimately bought by Alexander & Alexander Inc, a national broker. Realizing that working for larger brokers would stifle his expertise, he ventured out on his own with a small group of accounts, confident that personalized service would be his chance for success.
With a following of NYC business, he moved his offices to Bedford, NY, in 1968 while keeping a NYC mail drop and installing a NYC phone number so his clients would not have any interruption of quality service. With a vast array of clients including Personal Lines, Real Estate, Construction, and Manufacturing, his firm grew steadily, allowing him to expand his business through the purchase of four other smaller NYC Brokers.
Today, Mr. Hickey Sr. is retired and has handed control to his two sons, Raymond F. Hickey Jr. & Michael D. Hickey. Both have extensive experience in the Insurance business, Ray since 1988 and Mike since 1986. Ray originally joined the family business in 1988 after a successful career as a Controller for Health-Tex, a children's clothing manufacturer. Mike joined in 1992 after years of working in NYC for national insurance brokers on numerous types of accounts.
Hickey & Hickey Inc. concentrates primarily on Property & Causalty Business from all types of Personal Lines and Commercial Lines exposures. While we are a small family owned local agent, our familiarity with NYC and the surrounding environment has led to writings of larger national exposures as well.
