Like the Blackstone Valley and its strong sense of history, Soucy Insurance Agency is also steeped in tradition. The company was started in 1914 by Adelard L. Soucy, a first-generation French Canadian born in Manville, Rhode Island. Adelard Soucy was a leader in the community and represented Woonsocket in the Rhode Island House of Representatives. In 1918, he was elected mayor of Woonsocket and served four terms.
From 1945 through 1994, Adelard's son, Rodrigue Soucy, turned the business his father had started out of a room in his house into a thriving insurance and real estate agency. His brother, Adelard Soucy, Jr., worked for the company for over thirty years, spearheading the burgeoning real estate division.
Over the next four decades, the company witnessed tremendous growth. In 1994, David Soucy became the third member of the Soucy family to take the helm as president.
Under David's leadership the agency has continued to expand and, today, is one of Northern Rhode Island's largest independent insurance agencies.
The loyalty to the family business extends beyond the Soucy's immediate family. Among Soucy Insurance Agency's fourteen employees are men and women of all ages, some of whom have been with the agency for decades.
Soucy Insurance Agency continues to this day to be a dedicated corporate citizen in the Blackstone Valley. One thing that holds true to Soucy Insurance Agency today as it did 90 years ago is this: while times may change, their service and commitment remains true.
