What can we say about one of the agency owners? Only good things of course!
Steve graduated from Cardinal Spellman in 1989 before enrolling in Bridgewater State for 2 years before transferring to University of Georgia where he graduated with a BA in Finance in 1994. After graduation he worked for UPS for a short period, before he joined what was then Hannon-Ryan in 1995 as a life insurance salesman.
While Steve certainly knew that Jim Hannon was an all around fantastic guy and great businessman, he also knew joining his future father in law in business would be an adventure that would last a lifetime.
When he isn’t answering our many questions about computer upgrades and pinch hitting in the commercial department, Steve enjoys taking his chocolate lab Kona for runs. Spending time with his wife and 3 daughters is Steve’s favorite pastime, whether is traveling the globe or just hanging out at a sporting event.
Steve holds the Certified Insurance Counselor and the Accredited Advisor in Insurance designation.
Our esteemed founder Jim opened the doors of what is now Hannon-Murphy in 1968, with the idea of a friendly neighborhood insurance agency that would also be an integral part of the community while protecting families, individuals and businesses.

Since 2000, Nancy E. has served as our office gatekeeper, receptionist, greeter, and our girl Friday in general.

Nancy will spend her evenings in the summer either at the beach having a picnic dinner, or at the Plymouth waterfront people watching. If she had to pick her favorite thing to do besides open and sort the mail, she would say going to concerts-anything from classical to oldies and rock and roll. When she isn’t dancing in the aisles, Nancy keeps our office in order, from answering the phones to the ginormous task of our daily automated download.

Hannon-Murphy welcomed Maryjo into the family in August 2019.
Maryjo started working insurance many moons ago, as far back as possibly her early 20’s, working in Aetna’s offices first as support staff, and later as a “floater”. Working in multiple areas within the company allowed Maryjo to strengthen her skills and knowledge in not only personal lines, but commercial lines also.
Maryjo and her husband have three children and two grandchildren and have recently become “empty nesters”, but their beloved (Dachshund Chihuahua mix) Bella keeps them occupied. When they aren’t golfing, they enjoy their beach days in Sandwich.
Maryjo received her producer license in 2015. In 2017 she received her Certified Insurance Service Representative designation.
