Ed joined the Northern Insuring team after graduating from SUNY Potsdam in 1996, while majoring in Finance/Economics, and minoring in Communications. At that time he cited the desire for "a responsible position offering career opportunity, expansion of knowledge and an immediate challenge". For the past 23 years, Ed has met and exceeded goals, grown his own insurance and risk management knowledge and taken on new challenges willingly. He works closely with select clients, building positive relationships and mentors a highly successful sales team. In his expanded role, he will increase his responsibilities to include more direct over site of the sales team.

Ed specializes in social service organizations, municipalities, contractors, and schools.  As Senior Vice President, Ed is also responsible for sales support, guidance, and training of the Business Insurance Division sales executives in all three offices, Plattsburgh, Glens Falls and Potsdam.  Holding both his Certified Insurance Counselor and Certified Risk Manager designations, while pursuing his CSRM, Ed feels that education is key to being successful in today’s business climate.

Past services include Chamber of Commerce Governmental Affairs Committee, Clinton County MRS Foundation Officer, as well as a member and officer of Kiwanis.  Currently Ed is the Chairman of the Clinton County ARC Golf Committee, the YMCA Golf Committee member, and holds an officer position as Vice President of the Board for the United Way of the Adirondack Region.

Ed is an avid golfer, who has competed at the New York State and US Amateur Level.

"Ed is a quick learner, has a positive attitude and is always willing to go the extra mile to offer assistance, and I know I can count on him to follow through and keep a sense of humor; both of which are valuable traits."
