Our Company Eifert, French & Ketchum

When it comes to risk management and insurance, making the right decision requires experience.

Eifert, French & Ketchum Insurance Agency has been developing insurance and risk management solutions for businesses and individuals for over eighty years. Our reputation for providing professional service comes from listening carefully to our clients and designing responsive programs.

Founded in 1933 by Alan F. Eifert, EFK Insurance Agency began as a general agency in New York City, providing underwriting service to brokers. Eifert built a service organization committed to strong business relationships.

By 1969, the second generation expanded operations to provide direct services to clients, which required relocating to larger headquarters in Pelham, New York. Under Donald A. Eifert and Robert G. Eifert, the agency continued to grow through mergers and acquisitions. Strategic acquisitions have broadened agency product offerings in life insurance, employee benefits, suretyship and other specialized markets.

Today, under Brian H. Eifert, EFK Insurance Agency serves thousands of clients from both locations in Pelham, Westchester County, NY and Tenafly, Bergen County, NJ with an expansive menu of products meeting the needs of an increasingly diverse insurance market. We offer experience and knowledge that enable us to develop competitive, creative and customized programs. Our dedicated team of insurance professionals, coupled with a broad knowledge of the marketplace and a commitment to service and excellence, provides a winning combination for our clients
