A passion for helping others with their insurance needs might possibly be a hereditary trait that John Jr.’s father handed down to him. All through his childhood, his dad, John F. McBride Sr., owned an insurance agency in Billerica. Not long after John Jr. finished college – and worked a short stint with a paving company – he joined the family business. John Jr. quickly found that he was very skilled at being the bridge between the policyholder and the insurance carrier, especially when there was a problem that needed to be addressed.
In 1984, John Jr. proudly opened his own agency in Billerica, the town where he was born, raised, and “will never leave.” The past 35 years in the insurance industry have taught John Jr. a lot, including how to skillfully identify and resolve areas in a policy where a client might not have adequate coverage. John makes it his priority to close these coverage gaps so that the client has the insurance they need should a loss occur.
Time outside of the office is spent with his wife, kids, and grandkids. John really enjoys going to Lake Winnipesaukee NH with his whole family to boat, ski, and snowmobile. One other hobby that you may pick up on pretty quickly when you meet John Jr. is that he is an avid flyer and he hopes to be able to enjoy this activity for the rest of his life.
John has always been very active in the Billerica community, having served on the Athletic Association Board of Directors, the Billerica Girls Softball Board of Directors, and as past President of the Billerica Rotary Club. He and his wife are also honored to support the Make A Wish Foundation and the local VFW, continuing the tradition that his father, John Sr., started decades ago.
Whether you are a McBride client or not yet decided, John is always available to provide his extensive advice and knowledge. In an increasingly faceless, paperless world, John is dedicated to building personal relationships through one-on-one interactions with individuals and families. This purpose is at the core of the McBride Personal Touch.
