About Newell Family Insurance
The seeds of the NEWELL Family Insurance Agency were sown in the fall of 1977, when 23 year old Tim Newell, who was working at his father’s motorcycle dealership, decided to take the Insurance Brokers course at Siena College, with an eye on earning his insurance license and offering motorcycle insurance as a value added service for the dealership. Even though he was the only non-insurance industry person taking the course, he received notice he passed on New Year’s Eve 1977. With his wife pregnant with their first child and the news of passing the insurance exam, it was quite a celebration!
From 1978-1991 Tim sold motorcycle insurance at the dealership, which became a victim of the economic downturn and closed at the end of 1991. Needing a job, Tim was approached by the late Ron Fragomeni, of Fragomeni Associates, who asked what he was going to do next? That’s all it took and by the middle of January 1992, Tim became a self-employed insurance sales producer and went to work building a new clientele. Four years at Fragomeni in Saratoga, followed by nine years at Clients First Insurance Agency in Ballston Lake , ending up as partner and then nearly fifteen years as a partner in Shank & Falvey/S&F North in Burnt Hills, brings Tim to 2020, and with his son Chris (born in 1978) starting the NEWELL Family Insurance Agency LLC, the new Agency 40 years in the Making!
