The Ashland Insurance Center was established in 1987 by Paul M Phipps, principal of the Paul M Phipps Insurance Agency in Hopkinton and William J. Sheehan, principal of the Jensen-Sheehan Insurance Agency of Holliston. In November of 1990 Paul M Phipps bought out William Sheehan and the agency, and through the leadership of Robert Phipps, grew substantially throughout the 1990’s. In 2000 the leadership role was taken over by then Vice President of the Phipps Agency, Brian Thomas. The agency has continued to grow and has become an integral part of Ashland and the surrounding communities. Rob retired in 2018 and Brian is now the president of both The Ashland Insurance Center and the Paul M. Phipps Insurance Agency. With Brian providing guidance, the agency is now operated by two exceptionally talented insurance professionals, Christine Shkreli and Sandra Intinarelli. Like the Phipps Agency the Ashland Insurance Center is proud of the ongoing tradition of personal service and community support.
