McCarthy Insurance Office exterior

Since 1930

Established in 1930 by Dennis F. McCarthy, McCarthy Insurance is a firm of proven professionals and caring and conscientious people; the kind of people you can depend on. We mean that.

Our primary objectives are to be honest and fair in all our dealings, to be interested in people and their problems and to treat the client’s needs as if they were our own. We mean that too.

Bill McCarthy

The owner of McCarthy Insurance, Bill McCarthy, is a graduate of Siena College. Born and raised in Mount Pleasant, he has diligently served the local and regional communities for 30 years.

When he is not behind the desk at McCarthy Insurance, Bill’s interests include:

  • Spending time and traveling with his wife, Margaret, and grown children Alex, Andrew and Meaghan.
  • Chilling out at Brant Lake in the Adirondacks with close friends and family.
  • Following the New York Mets, win or lose.
  • Attending Bruce Springsteen shows until the end, which he hopes is never.
  • Golf, but its more about the kinship with buddies than the score, of course.
  • Skiing at Gore Mountain.

Tom Milliot

Tom Milliot obtained his insurance brokers license and joined McCarthy Insurance as a Vice President in 1988. Formally in the sales and marketing field, that experience was a good foundation for the day to day business of an insurance agency that is geared toward providing very personalized service.

Tom obtained a BA from Iona College in New Rochelle NY. After starting a family and moving to Thornwood, Tom quickly became involved in coaching AYSO soccer for his two daughters and even stayed on well after his coaching days to coordinate the U6 program.

Tom also served 3 years on the Mt. Pleasant Central School District board of education. In 2018 Tom stepped up as the president of the Mt. Pleasant Chamber of Commerce. Tom spearheaded several initiatives to bring more attention to the local business community.
