Philip W. Mason, CIC


In 1988, Phil Mason founded his own niche technology insurance agency hubbed in Whitman, Massachusetts. In founding the agency Phil’s vision was to provide insurance brokerage services to technology and life science companies with high growth potential and complex insurance needs. Back then these companies faced choosing between generalist insurance brokers with limited horsepower, or a mega-brokers that may have the expertise but struggle to deploy it for all but their largest clients. Phil formed his firm to provide companies like this with a better choice.

Fast forward to 2011, Phil purchased what was then known as M&M Assurance Group, Inc. and Mason & Mason Insurance Agency, Inc. from his parents, Dave and Jeanne Mason. As entrepreneurs, Dave and Jeanne spent years building their agencies to serve the insurance needs of the South Shore, the Mount Washington Valley, and beyond. Their vision was simple – to provide personalized attention and thoughtful insurance advice to each one of their clients, no matter how big or small. To Phil, it was important to perpetuate his parents’ agency and vision by purchasing it and ensuring that it remained independent, family owned, and locally operated.

Phil has assisted clients in obtaining insurance settlements in a variety of costly and complex professional and securities liability litigation. Over the last two-plus decades, risk management and insurance programs designed by Phil have provided defense and indemnity for his clients in legal actions seeking hundreds of millions in aggregate damages.

“I believe in taking a long view of our client relationships. We’ll invest in a small, developing firm by providing highly consultative insurance brokerage services because we know we’ll be doing business with that firm, or the chief financial officer of that firm, or the investors in that firm five, ten, or even twenty years down the road. I take that same view in developing our employees,” he notes.

Prior to forming Mason Technology Insurance Services, Phil was employed by Marsh where he provided insurance brokerage services to Fortune 1000 technology companies. “I literally grew up in the insurance business,” he says. “The day after I graduated from college, I started my own career in insurance at Marsh.”

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 Meisters course on Wednesdays come winter).
