Meet Our Leadership

Get to know NorthStar Insurance Services and the people who are committed to providing you with real value.

Edward B. Pierce, Jr.

Founder & President

Ed is responsible for development and implementation of the overall mission, strategy and direction of NorthStar. In addition to managing our insurance operation, he has significant client relationship responsibilities.

In 1995, Ed and Michael Griffin (retired) founded NorthStar in order to create an insurance operation dedicated to superior service and excellence in the delivery of risk management and insurance services. NorthStar quickly became one of the fastest-growing insurance operations in the Northeast and today is one of the largest independently owned insurance agents and brokers in New England.

Ed has served on producer advisory councils for numerous insurance companies including: Arbella, Commercial Union, Travelers, Peerless, One Beacon, USF&G and Central Insurance Group.

He is married with two sons.

Gregory G. Pierce

CPA, Senior Vice President and Director of Business Development

Greg is responsible for executing NorthStar’s marketing, sales and business development efforts, and is on NorthStar’s executive management team.

Greg began his career as an associate at Ernst & Young LLP, a “Big 4” professional services firm. At Ernst & Young, he was a member of the Transaction Advisory Services division, and prior to that was an Associate in the Assurance and Advisory Business Services division. Since joining the NorthStar team in 2010, Greg has focused his efforts on building NorthStar’s marketing efforts within a number of targeted industries including construction, real estate, technology, emerging growth and manufacturing.

Greg graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Notre Dame with a Master of Science in Accountancy, and received a Bachelor of Arts in Economics & Business from Lafayette College, where he played on the varsity lacrosse team. He earned the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) designation in May 2010, and also earned the Licensed Insurance Advisor (LIA) designation in March 2012.

In Memoriam: Joseph D. Flynn

We would like to honor our colleague and friend Joe Flynn, who was fatally injured in a tragic accident in February 2017.

Joe joined NorthStar in June 1997 as Senior Vice President, and was responsible for overseeing the delivery of service to a key group of accounts. In 2012 Joe became a shareholder in NorthStar and was promoted to Executive Vice President.  Joe also served on NorthStar’s Executive Management Team.

Joe started his insurance career as an underwriter with The Hartford Insurance Company. He subsequently joined legendary insurance broker O’Brion, Russell & Co. Through a series of mergers, international broker Aon became the surviving operating entity. Through all of the changes, Joe was the executive in charge of a significant group of large and complicated accounts.

Joe graduated from Fairfield University where he played on the varsity hockey team.

Joe is survived by his wife, two daughters and his son.

We miss Joe’s exceptional level of professionalism, his everlasting great attitude and spirit and, above all, we miss his friendship.
