Headquartered in Worcester, Massachusetts, The Hanover is one of the most successful companies and largest employers in Massachusetts. For nearly 160 years, through natural disasters and economic turmoil, The Hanover has continued to deliver on its promises to its independent agent partners and their customers, earning its reputation for strength and dependability. Since 2003, under the leadership of Chief Executive Officer Frederick H. Eppinger, the company has strengthened its financial position, broadened its product portfolio, and expanded its geographic presence.
Throughout 2008 and 2009, when the insurance industry was under unprecedented pressure and many companies were being downgraded, The Hanover was the only insurance company in the country to be upgraded by all three major ratings agencies—A.M.Best, Moody’s, and Standard & Poor’s. Today, The Hanover is ranked among the top 30 property and casualty insurers in the United States, and, together with its agent partners, provides valuable insurance protection for individuals, families and businesses across the country. While building one of the strongest and most successful companies in its business, The Hanover and its employees come together to improve the communities where its employees live and work. Working closely with others in communities around the country, the company supports a wide range of important needs, placing special emphasis on the issues of education and youth. The company also helps to drive projects considered key to economic growth and vitality, such as the restoration of a historic theatre, the advancement of a large-scale redevelopment project in the heart of Worcester’s downtown district, and the support of local professional sports teams. While many others have come and gone over the years, The Hanover continues as a dynamic and welcome presence in Massachusetts, as a growing employer and one of the leading companies in its industry, helping to deliver meaningful change and progress in the communities it calls home.
