Steve Cote Named President of Chalmers Insurance Group
January 14, 2014

Steve Cote, of Conway, has been named President of Chalmers Insurance Group, one of the region's largest independent insurance agencies.

Cote joined Chalmers in 2000 and formerly served as president of Chalmers' New Hampshire operations.

Bruce Chalmers, who had served as president of the agency that has been owned by his family for nearly 100 years, will retain an "of counsel" role in the agency and will also serve as chairman of the board of directors. His brother, William "Bill" Chalmers, will also be "of counsel" and serve as treasurer of the board.

"Steve has demonstrated excellence in both his technical abilities and his ability to foster strong relationships," said Bruce Chalmers. "He embodies the values that have guided Chalmers since my grandfather purchased this agency in the 1920s — namely, a focus on providing knowledgeable, professional services at a fair price, and being actively involved in the communities we serve."

"It is a tremendous honor to have been tapped by Bill and Bruce Chalmers to serve as our organization's next president," said Cote. "Our new leadership team is excited about the challenges ahead. We are committed to taking the strategic steps necessary to assure that the Chalmers Insurance Group remains independently owned and family operated for the next generation and beyond."
