MountainOne swoops for Cross Insurance location

MountainOne Insurance Agency has announced that it has acquired the Pittsfield, Mass., location of Cross Insurance. The acquisition effectively makes MountainOne the largest agency headquartered in the Berkshires in terms of clients under management, the company said.

MountainOne plans to retain the Cross Insurance team, which will grow the combined agency to 50 employees in six locations throughout Berkshire County, Mass.

“The acquisition of Cross Insurance in Pittsfield furthers MountainOne’s commitment to the communities we serve,” said Jonathan Denmark, president and COO of MountainOne. “The combined agency will now be able to offer products and solutions from an expanded roster of insurance companies.”

Cross Insurance was formed in 2016 when Cross purchased Pardwell, Bowlby & Karam Insurance Agency and Colt Insurance Agency.

“While the name will change to MountainOne Insurance, the location will remain at 101 South Street in Pittsfield,” Denmark said. “We are thrilled to be expanding our presence into downtown Pittsfield and will carry on the traditions of excellence that Cross and the prior agencies were known for.”

MountainOne Insurance Agency offers personal and business property-casualty insurance services, surety bonding, employee benefits, life insurance and Medicare products.
