Firm History

Downey & Company (Roger N. Downey Agency, Inc.) is an independent insurance agency organized in the state of New Mexico since 1979. Downey & Company specializes in contract bonds and insurance for the commercial construction industry in New Mexico.

Our office combines years’ of experience with leading-edge products to provide exceptional service and value to our clients. Our product offering includes insurance products and risk management services for commercial property and casualty, inland marine; specialty coverages and surety.

Downey & Company is a family-owned business. Roger Downey is the founder and his son, Christian Downey, is the President of the corporation.

The ownership of the company has changed very little since its inception and we do not foresee any organizational changes within the next 24 months. In light of the recent local agency purchases by national corporate conglomerates, we are proud to be independent and locally owned. This affords us the freedom to choose both the markets and the customers with which we engage. We are not burdened with a corporate hierarchy and therefore have greater flexibility to respond to our clients’ needs. This is a distinct advantage for our company, our employees, and our clients.

Downey & Company is an active member in numerous industry associations, including: Independent Insurance Agents of New Mexico (IIANM), Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA), Associated Builders & Contractors of NM (ABC), New Mexico Underground Contractors Association (NMUCA), Associated General Contractors (AGC), New Mexico Roofing Contractors Association (NMRCA) and the National Association of Surety Bond Producers (NASBP).
