You could say that Phil Mason was born to work in insurance. His parents, Dave and Jeanne Mason, spent years building their agencies—M&M Assurance Group, Inc. and Mason & Mason Insurance Agency, Inc.—to serve the insurance needs of clients spanning from south of Boston to the Mount Washington Valley region. Their vision was simple: Provide personalized attention and thoughtful insurance advice to each one of their clients, no matter how big or small.
The day after he graduated from college, Phil went to work for Marsh, where he provided insurance brokerage services to Fortune 1000 technology companies. He came to realize that technology companies at the time had only two choices in insurance—generalist insurance brokers with limited horsepower or mega-brokers with expertise that only catered to their largest clients. Recognizing an opportunity, Phil found his own niche technology insurance agency in Whitman, Massachusetts in 1988 to provide these companies with a better choice.
In 2011, Phil’s parents were ready for retirement. Phil purchased his parents’ agencies to perpetuate their vision and ensure that they remained independent, family owned, and locally operated. In 2020, with the acquisition of Mason and Mason Insurance, Phil became a shareholder with AHT Insurance and continues to lead Mason AHT locally in New Hampshire and the Boston area.
When not in the office, Phil makes his way to the mountains or to the beach. He is an avid fly fisherman, upland bird hunter and avid skier (look for him on the Cranmore Mountain Meisters course on Wednesdays come winter).
