Rick Bongiorno:

I am a licensed insurance agent and have been in the insurance industry for over 20 years.

I started this agency in 2007. I started my career as National Rookie of the Year for one of the largest insurance companies in the nation. Since then, I have continued to be an accomplished regional, state, and national leader. I graduated from SUNY at Binghamton University with my Bachelor of Science from the Watson School of Engineering and obtained a minor in Business. I am a member of the Professional Insurance Agents of NY. I earned the honor of Life Underwriter Training Council Fellow (LUTCF) from both The American College and The National Association of Insurance & Financial Advisors. My family and I have a strong commitment to the Southern Tier. We enjoy an active lifestyle that includes hiking, scuba diving, and various sports. We have many animals including a miniature horse, three dogs, and a very friendly turtle.
