Date Founded: 1985
After working as a very successful independent insurance agent for many years, in 1984, Len Sevigney decided it was time to make a leap and open his own agency in his hometown of Wells, Maine. With just a very few carriers, in the beginning, Len opened up his small office on Main Street. In 1985, another accomplished insurance agent, Jack Lyons, joined Len. They developed an excellent reputation by always putting their customers first. As honest and knowledgeable insurance agents, their business grew.
In 1999, Len’s sons, Lucas & Jonathan, upon graduating from St. Lawrence and Boston College, respectively, joined the agency. Since then, Sevigney-Lyons has become one of the most decorated agencies in Southern Maine, winning multiple CSR of the year awards, holding chairs on several company boards, and winning multiple company awards. Lucas and Jonathan purchased the agency in 2008. By continuing a customer-driven approach and expanding the Elite Condominium Insurance program, Sevigney-Lyons has continued to grow. Sevigney-Lyons continues to grow through both organic means and through acquisition, including Ham Insurance Agency in South Berwick (2014), Lyons Agency for Insurance in Kennebunk (2018), and Coastal Insurance Agency in Portland, ME (2019).
At Sevigney-Lyons, we take the time to get to know you, our customers, and your insurance needs for your personal insurance and/or business needs.
