Joe is the founding father of Mancuso-Nowak Insurance. The business has been his life for 35 years. He is the patriarch of this family agency and he oversees the day to day operations with an eye out for agency opportunities.
How it all began…Joe went to college to become a teacher. He taught for a few years and then a friend who was in the insurance business suggested he try out insurance for the summer. If he didn’t like it he could go back to teaching in the fall. And as they say, the rest is history. That was in 1976 when he started working for Tully Insurance in West Boylston. In 1983 Joe met Eddy Nowak through his accountant. They decided it would be a smart idea to go into business together. And it was! Originally located right next door to our current location, Mancuso-Nowak started business in 1983. In 1988 Joe bought the building next door, 252 Boston Turnpike, renovated it and the agency has been located here ever since.
Joe is a people person. All of his great relationships with his customers make the business successful. Many of his customers have been with him for years. The same is true for the employees. Kara, our office manager, has been working with Joe for 27yrs. The office environment is friendly and welcoming, which comes from the way that Joe interacts with the employees.
On the weekends Joe enjoys going down the Cape, especially when his grandchildren are down with him. Joe has a love of cars and his grandson is following in his footsteps. Together they go to car shows and share stories of the amazing cars they see, endless hours of car talk. Joe is a golfer and mostly enjoys it…if he is playing well. Other days he is never playing golf again.
Mancuso-Nowak is a family business that works hard to make sure your family has the insurance coverage you need. Joe and Tony are the family foundation of our agency!
