NBT Bank’s insurance division now conducts business as NBT Insurance Agency LLC. This change completes a multi-year transition plan developed following NBT Bancorp’s acquisition of Mang Insurance Agency LLC in 2008.
“Mang and later NBT-Mang forged a strong reputation for offering insurance expertise and excellent service across the Southern Tier of New York where both the agency and NBT Bank are headquartered,” said Timothy L. Brenner, NBT Bancorp Inc. executive vice president and president of wealth management. “NBT Bank’s footprint has grown over the years to include over 150 banking locations in six states, representing an important opportunity to expand the availability of the insurance services we offer.”
NBT Insurance Agency President Tucker H. Lounsbury Lounsbury said the change “creates clarity in the insurance marketplace, and the strong alignment between the insurance agency and bank brands will help customers across NBT’s established and new markets to understand the connection between our business units and the comprehensive array of financial solutions we deliver to assist them in achieving their goals.”
NBT Insurance Agency LLC currently conducts business from locations in 19 communities in New York, including Canajoharie, Cooperstown, Delhi, Deposit, Glens Falls, Gloversville, Greene, Hamilton, Margaretville, Norwich, Oneonta, Plattsburgh, Queensbury, Saratoga Springs, Sherburne, Sidney, Syracuse, Utica and Vestal.
NBT Bancorp Inc. is a financial holding company headquartered in Norwich, with total assets of $9.1 billion at Dec. 31, 2017.
