Albert J. Chapman grew up in Hawthorne New York and began his insurance career following military service in the Pacific during World War II. Early in his career he held numerous positions with increasing responsibility on both the insurance company and insurance agency level. In 1950 he moved his family to Yorktown NY and in 1958 decided to open his own insurance agency in his dining room.
In 1960 Albert moved his office into Yorktown’s business district on Commerce Street. In the years to follow Albert built lasting business friendships with his clients and solid partnerships with nationally known insurance companies. His clients relied on him to provide sound advice and analysis of their needs and insurance products from companies that would live up to their expectations for service, reliability and value.
Albert believed in the importance of providing personal service to his community as well as his clients. He was among the founding members of the Yorktown Volunteer Ambulance Corps. He provided aid to those in need as the area representative of the Salvation Army, and would cheerfully ring the bell at a Salvation Army red kettle every year at holiday time. He was also very active in the Yorktown Rotary club. A community based service club made up of local professionals and business leaders.
Encouraged by his father, Robert Chapman now runs the agency continuing his father’s dedication to the business and community that he loved.
