CPCU, President of Putnam Record Agency
"Doug Mahany loves helping people protect the things that matter most in their lives, like their family, their house, car, boat, and their business."
You never know when some kind of unexpected event will happen in this game called life, so Doug loves helping people figure out a strategy for winning the big game. Doug started his insurance career in 1977, working for Daniel Putnam, grandson of the founder Walter L Putnam, who started the agency in 1931. He began in customer service, answering questions and concerns for customers about their car or home insurance, and quickly moved through all areas of agency operations. In 1984 he became an equity partner in the agency, and has been agency President since 1992.
He attained the professional designation of Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU®) from the American Institute for Chartered Property Casualty Underwriters in 1989. The CPCU Society is a community of credentialed property and casualty insurance professionals who promote excellence through ethical behavior and continuing education. This in-depth program requires passing rigorous undergraduate and graduate level examinations, meeting experience requirements, and agreeing to be bound by a strict code of professional ethics. Working with Doug Mahany and the rest of the staff at the Putnam Record Insurance Agency means you can be assured that your insurance solutions will be on-par with the latest best-practices in the insurance industry, and that you are working with a professional staff, focused on your best interests.
Doug is a graduate of Alfred University, with a Bachelors of Science degree in Business Administration. He is a lifelong member of the Dunkirk and Fredonia community, a graduate of Dunkirk High School, and is the former Chairman of the Chautauqua County Chamber of Commerce. He is a member of the Dunkirk Rotary Club and participates in just about every community event we have around here!
He loves living in Chautauqua County with his wife Carol, and they enjoy traveling, cooking, golfing, sailing and cheering for the Buffalo Bills! He has three grown children, Sean, Carly, and Patrick, and is proud of the accomplishments they continue to make in their careers.
If you ever have any questions or concerns about your insurance, Doug will be your advocate and help you get that awesome feeling that “every little thing’s gonna be alright!”
