Kane Insurance was founded by Michael G. Kane in the spring of 1995.

A veteran of the insurance industry for over thirty five years, Mr. Michael Kane, along with his son, Patrick, decided to start an independent insurance agency that was both professionally connected and client-focused.  While Patrick was away studying at the University of New Hampshire, Mr. Kane established the first Kane Insurance office in Patrick’s former upstairs bedroom in Auburn, New Hampshire. Two years later, and with a growing list of clients, Patrick, as a graduate of the Whittemore School of Business, opened a branch in Dover, New Hampshire, while his father moved the office from Auburn to Manchester.  With more clients came greater success and Kane Insurance, along with a growing professional staff, was well on its way to becoming a leading New England insurance agency.  In 1999, Patrick and his father decided that the time was right to open a Kane’s Portsmouth hub. In 2005, with a thriving business and many loyal clients, Michael Kane decided to retire and signed the business over to Patrick and his business partner Peter.  In 2012, Patrick joined forces with Lyle Fulkerson.  Lyle, a well-known businessman in New Hampshire and Massachusetts, has added his years of experience in running companies in the legal and insurance sectors to bring Kane to the next level. Patrick and Lyle have continued to grow Kane Insurance with the help of a strong team of determined staff. Today, the friendship and dedication of the staff continue the legacy of hard and honest work.  The attentive and ambitious men and women who work for Kane Insurance are part of a family business – one that started in the Kane home and now extends its reach throughout eighteen states.  Our New Hampshire offices are conveniently located in Portsmouth, Rye, Manchester, and Stratham. As Kane continues to grow, their commitment will always remain steadfast to their valued clients.  This is the Kane philosophy and this is what makes the Kane Insurance Agency the embodiment of the American dream.
