Day & Read Inc. is the premier financial risk management company in Central New York. We are a locally owned, independent insurance agency with five locations throughout the Mohawk Valley region.

Our roots have brought two successful organizations together to form the firm Day & Read, Inc. as noted below:

In 1983 Timothy Day went to work at his father Jack Day’s insurance agency in Ilion, New York. He was later joined by Nicholas Scarafile in 1990 and the agency’s ownership and name was changed to Day & Scarafile Associates, Inc. in 1994. This property and casualty agency was successful in developing its commercial and personal insurance business into one of the top agencies in the Mohawk Valley.

Simultaneously, in 1984, David Read joined Mahoney & Mahoney in Little Falls, New York. In 1991, William Read, David’s brother, an accountant in Massachusetts at the time, returned to Little Falls and together they changed the agency name to Read Financial Group, Inc. The firm developed a unique diversification that set it apart from all other firms in Central New York. It realized its strength in insurance, investments, tax and accounting services.

In 2006, Day & Scarafile Associates and Read Financial Group merged with the goal of creating a full-service independent agency capable of handling all facets of our clients’ personal and business financial needs.

As a merged firm, Day & Read, Inc. has continued to grow its client base and expand its business. In 2010 the John DelBuono Insurance Agency moved into the Marcy office of Day & Read and that is now the center for insurance operations for the greater Utica area. Our expansion has continued over the years to our present-day footprint with offices located in Ilion, Herkimer, Little Falls, Marcy, & Rome.

As clients as our first priority within our business model, each phase of expansion was strategically chosen to help strengthen the ability of Day & Read to provide complete client services to our customers.  As an independent agent we will continue to offer you the right coverages at the right price without sacrificing professional service.  Day & Read will be there for you when you need us.
