“Ever since she joined Ames & Gough more than a decade ago, Marguerite has been an important driver in the development and growth of both our property-casualty business and the Boston office,” said Dan Knise, president and CEO of Ames & Gough. “We’re delighted to welcome her as an equity partner of the firm, and look forward to her continued contributions and leadership in the years ahead.”

“Over the years, Marguerite has been a key participant in our business development and client service teams in Boston,” said Brett Gough, head of Ames & Gough’s Boston operations. “Her steadfast commitment to providing exceptional client service and her extensive industry knowledge, has helped us expand our relationships with many large design-firm clients here in the Northeast and throughout the country. I’m pleased to join the other partners in welcoming Marguerite as the newest member of our leadership team.”

Parent has more than two decades of experience in insurance broking and risk management consulting. She joined Ames & Gough in 2006, after serving with William Gallagher Associates in Boston.
