I’m proud to work with a company who’s been serving satisfied customers for over 70 years. I can offer quality insurance that’s affordable and provide easy access for you to contact me in person, over the phone, or through my website - wherever and whenever you need.

Matthew Annicchiarico
Sales Specialist
I have been working at The Merritt Agency for the past couple of years, and am newly licensed for selling property and casualty insurance.  I have never been part of such a close knit team that works so hard for our customers. Outside of work, my son and I love going on day trips to the beach, local parks, and going bike riding. We also love to barbecue!
Abigail Merritt
I am a highly motivated graduate from Fordham University. I have been involved in the insurance industry for seven consecutive years; As a result I have gained crucial knowledge of the business world particularly entrepreneurship. I work for the Merritt Agency remotely while I am at school and at both locations during breaks. The focus of my work is human resource and administrative work in the offices. During my free time, you can find me with my family and friends, loving life and feeling extremely blessed. I am always looking to learn new things and help others whenever I can.
Susan Storms
Sales Specialist
For the past five years, I have thoroughly enjoyed selling insurance with The Merritt Agency. I have so much love for our customers. I have three sons. I also have three pets; my dog, Todd and two cats, Ms. Witten and Stinka. I love cooking bringing my food to work to share.
John Greene
Senior Account Executive
I've been working in insurance for over 5 years now. I've worn a lot of hats in my professional career overall, having been a small business owner, and being very active in my local community in Kent, where I currently serve as a volunteer firefighter. I believe my company genuinely cares about the people who use our services and the staff who work hard to achieve great care and want the best experience for both, while being true to their values. I recently bought my first home and couldn't be more proud to be renovating it for my family to enjoy. I currently live in Kent with my beautiful wife, 2 wonderful children, and 2 dogs. As a hobby, I'm very interested in classic cars, and am always ready to talk about it when you bring it up.
