About The Mahoney Group

History of The Mahoney Group

The Mahoney Group traces its roots to 1915 and an agency founded by John R. O'Donnell in the mining town of Ray, Arizona. Under the leadership of Don Mahoney and John E. O'Donnell (the son of the founder) in the 1950s and 1960s, the agency added real estate services and grew with offices then located in Casa Grande, Coolidge, Phoenix, Superior, and Tucson.

Following Mahoney's passing in 1971, John W. McEvoy, a Mahoney agent at the time, assumed the leadership and ownership of the agency with fellow employees Eddie Higginbotham, Glenn Luglan, Chuck McHugh and Bob Pitman.   Over the last several decades, this leadership team has spearheaded significant Mahoney growth by serving the customers throughout the state with offices located in Casa Grande, Flagstaff, Kingman, Mesa, Phoenix, Show Low, Prescott and Tucson.

In the summer of 2001, this leadership team retired and a perpetuation program was implemented creating a new owner group consisting of Leon Byrd, Matthew Bagnall, Steve Goble, David Herrold, J. R. McEvoy, Barbara Millar and Glen Nelson.  Currently The Mahoney Group has grown to become the largest independent insurance agency in Arizona, employing over 260 individuals that are responsible for the growth and success of the organization.  Our rapid growth has been facilitated by our numerous programs including Habitational, Tribal, Condominiums, Mini Storage and Homeowners Associations.  The Mahoney Group recognizes our success comes from dedication, commitment and involvement in the communities that we serve.

In February 2005, The Mahoney Group opened additional offices in Las Vegas, Nevada and Albuquerque, New Mexico.  In August 2006, an office was opened in Salt Lake City, Utah.  In December 2007, an office was opened in Seattle, WA.  In March 2009 we opened our newest office in Commerce, CA.

Each Mahoney Group office is locally run to provide you with personal and professional service from individuals committed to the area, but, at the same time, backed by Mahoney's specialized expertise and strength as Arizona's largest independent insurance and real estate agency.
