James A Connors Associates, Inc. began as the Fred A. Barbanes Agency. After managing the agency for ten years, Mr. James A. Connors purchased it in 1972. As owner and principal, he set out to establish a reputation of extraordinary personal and professional service. His high standards were recognized by the industry when he was named President of the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of New Jersey, a professional trade organization representing independent insurance agents and brokers throughout New Jersey.

Mr. James A. Connors, Jr. joined the agency in 1986. After 16 years of experience, the reins were officially turned over to him and he became President and Chief Operating Officer in 2002.

Over the years, James A. Connors Associates, Inc. acquired Horton Fine Insurance Agency in Califon, Hunterdon County, New Jersey and Stern and Dragoset Associates, Inc. in Edison, Middlesex County, New Jersey. 

In 2005 our headquarters was moved to a larger location in Morristown, New Jersey. Today James A. Connors Associates, Inc. has more than 40 experienced insurance professionals providing all types of insurance coverage, from commercial to personal to life and health. We also specialize in a number of business areas ranging from service businesses to retail establishments to wholesale suppliers to manufacturing.
