Liz Cahill and Rick Mooney

The Sterling Insurance Agency Inc. was established in 1929 by Lester O. Sterling. The business originated out of Mr. Sterling’s house. After a few years, Lester (Les) moved the business to an office location at 222 Cabot Street, Beverly. In 1961, Mr Sterling constructed his own building on 9 Broadway, Beverly.

On September 1, 1983, Lester stepped down as President and sold the agency to Richard (Dick) Mooney. Mr. Mooney had been the Executive Vice President since 1974.

Due to continual growth, the agency needed larger quarters, so in September 1993, Sterling Insurance Agency renovated and moved to 306 Cabot Street.

In April 2002, Richard (Rick) Mooney, Jr. was named President. Rick began his career in insurance in 1985. Sterling Insurance Agency continues to be a family owned independent insurance agency serving Beverly and the North Shore. We will continue to give you personalized service into the future.
