Brown Thayer Shedd's History

Brown Thayer Shedd Insurance Agency was founded in 1923 by Mr. Thayer Shedd as a Travelers Agency primarily for the purpose of marketing Life Insurance. It was expanded in the next several years into the Property/Casualty business and has since morphed into one of the largest High Net Worth Personal Lines operations in the country.  At the close of 2016, Brown Thayer Shedd (BTS) was the sixth largest Chubb Agent in the country.

Experienced Team

In 1945, the agency was appointed by Chubb and Sons and served almost exclusively as a Chubb agent until the mid 1980s. As the scope of the agency grew, first as a result of Mr. Shedd’s son’s efforts and more recently under Mr. Edward D. “Tim” Brown’s leadership, appointments from other carriers have been sought and obtained.
