Company History


For over 75 years, Gunn, Steers & Company, LLC has operated as a full service domestic and international insurance brokerage and financial services firm located in the New York metropolitan area.  Founded in 1925, the firm was originally headed by Gene T. Gunn for nearly 50 years and operated under Gene T. Gunn Company.  Through Gene’s strong leadership and foresight coupled with the firm’s highly respected name in the industry, the firm acquired a number of other brokerages which resulted in an increase in the number of quality clients and increased further the number of available insurance markets.  In 1974, John F. Gunn succeeded his father and continued the family legacy as Principal of the organization.  The name was changed to Gunn & Company in 1995. In 2002, William M. Steers joined the firm as Executive Vice President, providing the company with over 20 years of insurance carrier and brokerage experience and expertise.  In 2004, Mr. Steers became partner and the name of the firm was changed to Gunn, Steers & Company, LLC, as it currently exists. Most recently, John Gunn retired from the Company and the industry in 2007. Looking forward, Bill Steers, with his strong industry depth and leadership experience, is leading the firm into the future with a very solid base of loyal and diversified clients, and highly experienced staff members committed to client services and product expansion.
