History of The Mahoney Group
The Mahoney Group traces its roots to 1915 and an agency
founded by John R. O'Donnell in the mining town of Ray,
Arizona. Under the leadership of Don Mahoney and John E.
O'Donnell (the son of the founder) in the 1950s and 1960s, the
agency added real estate services and grew with offices then
located in Casa Grande, Coolidge, Phoenix, Superior, and
Following Mahoney's passing in 1971, John W. McEvoy, a Mahoney
agent at the time, assumed the leadership and ownership of the
agency with fellow employees Eddie Higginbotham, Glenn Luglan,
Chuck McHugh and Bob Pitman. Over the last several decades,
this leadership team has spearheaded significant Mahoney
growth by serving the customers throughout the state with
offices located in Flagstaff, Kingman,
Mesa, Phoenix, Snowflake, Prescott and Tucson.
In the summer of 2001, this leadership team retired
and a perpetuation program was implemented creating a new
owner group consisting of Leon Byrd, Matthew Bagnall, Steve
Goble, David Herrold, J. R. McEvoy, Barbara Millar and Glen
Nelson. Currently The Mahoney Group has grown to become
the largest independent insurance agency in Arizona, employing
over 260 individuals that are responsible for the growth and
success of the organization. Our rapid growth has been
facilitated by our numerous programs including Habitational,
Tribal, Condominiums, Mini Storage and Homeowners
Associations. The Mahoney Group recognizes our success comes
from dedication, commitment and involvement in the communities
that we serve.
In February 2005, The
Mahoney Group opened additional offices in Las Vegas, Nevada
and Albuquerque, New Mexico. In August 2006, an
office was opened in Salt Lake City, Utah. In December
2007, an office was opened in Seattle, WA. In March 2009
we opened our newest office in Commerce, CA.
Mahoney Group office is locally run to provide you with
personal and professional service from individuals committed
to the area, but, at the same time, backed by Mahoney's
specialized expertise and strength as Arizona's largest
independent insurance and real estate agency.
