Meet Our Management Team
Steve Ellis, President
In 2013 Steve Ellis, President of Bright Insurance Agency in Milford, acquired Jensen Sheehan Insurance Agency from longtime owner Bill Sheehan. Steve was drawn to Jensen Sheehan for its longstanding tradition of customer service and giving back to the community, qualities that run deep within the Ellis Family and Bright Insurance.
Steve is a great example of a local guy making good. Born and raised in Hopedale, Steve takes pride in being an active member of the local community. From the Milford Chamber of Commerce and the Milford Rotary club (he is former chairman and current member of both) and a former member of the Board of Trustees for the Milford Regional Medical Center, Steve understands that being a local agent isn’t about writing insurance policies. It’s about knowing your neighbor and being there. “Obviously, there are a lot of choices out there today but we pride ourselves on our customer service and that’s how we stand out. We build relationships with our customers.”
Steve Graduated from Southern New Hampshire University with a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and worked as an Adjuster and Officer manager for Crawford and Company and Insurance Adjustment Services ( I.A.S ) before joining his father Peter Ellis at Bright Insurance. Steve worked as a Sales producer for 4 years before becoming President and Treasurer where he serves today.
When Steve isn’t working, he enjoys spending time with his wife Lynne and their two grown sons, as well as fly fishing, and golfing.
Most days Steve can be found working out of our Milford office at 6 Congress St.

When Krishna isn’t working she enjoys traveling and camping with her husband and participating in her church’s community events.
