Today, we’re celebrating Renaissance Alliance Member The Haas Insurance Agency, Inc. for their commitment to their communities that extends above and beyond just serving their insurance needs. The three Haas brothers – Paul, Peter, and Tim and his wife, Anne – serve Hartford and Fairfield counties from their Glastonbury and Newtown, CT offices.
“It’s All About our Community”
As the Covid19 crisis evolved, the brothers went to work. They helped small businesses understand and navigate the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans. They contacted their clients to be sure they were okay and offered to assist with shopping and other errands. Anne and Tim even delivered baby furniture to a new, young mother. Of their hands-on community response, Tim said, “These are our clients, our neighbors and friends! We wouldn’t have it any other way.”
In addition to being there for clients and community in the time of Covid19, Peter Haas has served as President of the Glastonbury Exchange Club raising money for local organizations. He has also co-chaired the Exchange’s “Touch-A-Truck” event and the Antiques Show. Paul is currently the Chairman of the Board for the Connecticut River Valley Chamber of Commerce comprising the towns of Glastonbury, East Hartford, and Marlborough. He was named Chamber Ambassador of the Year in 2017. He was elected to the Glastonbury Board of Education and served for 5 years. Paul has also been a mentor for the Glastonbury High School “Shark Tank Program. Tim is past President of Chamber of Commerce of Newtown and past leader of Knights of Columbus, while Anne is past President of Professional Connections Networking Group and volunteers at the Danbury Animal Welfare Society shelter.
Paul Haas, Sr. founded The Haas Agency in 1953 so the agency has been ingrained in the community over more than six decades. The landmark event for The Haas Agency was 2011 when sons Paul, Peter and Tim moved the agency from a direct writer, representing only one major carrier, to an independent agency model, representing a wide range of insurance companies. Today, we are proud to have The Haas Agency as a member of the Renaissance Alliance!
