About Peter Briggs Insurance
Founded in 1961 by Peter Briggs, the Peter Briggs Insurance Agency has been an important member of the Southeastern Massachusetts business community for many years. Initially working out of his house, Peter Briggs then moved his business to its current location at 19 County Rd. Mattapoisett in 1968. Slowly growing his business, one customer at a time, in 1984, his nephew David Perkins was brought into the business after graduating from Northeastern University. In 1987, the agency was further expanded with the hiring of Andrew Wingate, previously a manager with the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company. In 1989, with the retirement of Peter Briggs, David and Andrew assumed ownership of the agency.
In 2002, the agency was admitted to Insurance Services of New England, (ISNE).
