Elliot Whittier has been helping to grow to the Beautification Program; adopting spaces around the town, since the program first started in 1989.
- They are perennial supporters of the street banners which add a colorful, finished effect to our main streets.
- Most recently Elliot Whittier adopted the rather large and overgrown space at the intersection of Highland Ave & Revere Street with colorful plantings and ongoing maintenance.
- In 2002, Elliot Whittier commemorated its 125th year in business with a beautiful Colorado Spruce in the space behind the Doughboy Statue at Metcalf Square. In that same year they planted an Oak Tree at the Arthur Cummings Elementary School and donated a large framed, antique map of Winthrop to the Winthrop Public Library.
- In the last five years they have completely renovated and landscaped their office at 12 Revere Street. The flower boxes are changed seasonally and they recently installed new awnings.
When asked why Visual Achievement Award was important, Elliot Whittier CEO Steve Roy said “By maintaining and beautifying our business we show respect for our community and pride in our business. We look at our investment in beautification, not only as a way of promoting our business, but also a way to invest in our community.”
When asked what separates Elliot Whittier Insurance Services from others in the field, Roy said “We attempt to anticipate client needs with annual reviews. If we see that a renewing policy premium has had a significant increase, we will get other quotes and options before calling our client. We have access to virtually every carrier licensed to do business in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts which gives us a distinct competitive advantage. I’d like to add that we have a highly motivated staff committed to improving their professional skills on an ongoing basis. We have 20 professional designations spread amongst our 19 employees.”
In 2004, Elliot Whittier received Winthrop Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year award. The agency is known for having a long history of community involvement that continues to be manifested through their staff . In 2011 they contributed money and time to many wonderful community activities. This year, 2012, Elliot Whittier celebrates its 130th anniversary.
