Buffalo insurer Walsh Duffield acquires Rochester insurance agency

Buffalo insurance agency Walsh Duffield Cos. has acquired a suburban Rochester insurer, Barry York Inc.

The acquisition of the six-employee insurance agency in Pittsford is the second for Walsh Duffield in the Rochester market, following its purchase of the Stuart G. Smith Agency in June 2014.

“This is a great opportunity for us to partner with a strong leader and grow our presence in the Rochester market,” said Barney Walsh, Walsh Duffield’s executive vice president.

Walsh Duffield, which also has an office in Medina, said it continues to seek other acquisitions to expand its presence in Rochester and other upstate markets.
