Weed Ross Acquires the Bristol Burgess Agency

Weed Ross, one of the fastest-growing, locally owned insurance agencies in New York, is announcing the acquisition of the Bristol Burgess Agency, Inc., effective June 1, 2024.

The Bristol Burgess Agency has been a proud insurance provider for Westfield, New York, and its surrounding area for over 75 years, serving countless families and businesses. The agency has built strong community ties and offers a wide range of insurance services, including homeowners policies, renters insurance, auto, commercial, personal, business, and more. 

The current owners, the second generation of a family that has owned the business since 1960, will remain involved to ensure a smooth transition and continue the tradition upheld by the Bristol Burgess Agency. Weed Ross will also retain the same dedicated staff, location, and customer service that Westfield has come to trust.

Founded in 1957, Weed Ross continues its growth, and this acquisition of Bristol Burgess Agency in Westfield marks the fifth location for Weed Ross and the eighth agency acquisition in just the past few years

Sean D. Cornelius, president of Weed Ross, stated, “The Bristol Burgess Agency has been an integral part of the Westfield community for decades and decades, so we’re really excited to have them on board. They have established a legacy of excellent service and community involvement and we’re ready to continue that tradition with this acquisition of such a well-respected agency.” 

With over 20 years of experience in insurance claims, sales, and management, Cornelius has served as president since 2016, helping Weed Ross to become recognized as one of the largest locally owned insurance agencies. 

Vice president of Weed Ross, Joe Palumbo, added, “We’re constantly looking for ways to provide the people of Upstate New York with a simpler, more straightforward insurance solution. And adding an exceptional office like Bristol Burgess in Westfield is an exciting, strategic development. We’re looking forward to working together with them to uphold our standard of exceptional service.”
