Jack Walsh began at Walsh Duffield Companies, Inc. in 1973. In partnership with talented and dedicated associates, he has proudly seen the fifth generation of his family help the agency grow significantly in size and stature. Today, Walsh Duffield stands as one of the most respected insurance brokers in Western New York.
A graduate of Nichols School, Yale University, and Harvard Law School, Jack worked for Citibank in New York City and for Aetna Life and Casualty Company in Hartford before returning to Buffalo, NY in 1973 to join his father and uncle in the family business. Recognized leaders in the Western New York volunteer community, Jack and his associates are committed to providing top-notch professional service to the agency's corporate and individual customers.
As CEO, he is most gratified by the quality of his fellow employees. “It is a privilege to work with them,” he stated. “They make us proud each day. They understand that our customers trust us to advise them fully, to keep them safe, and to anticipate their needs. Nothing is more important than our relationships with our clients and their continuing faith in us.”
