90 Years of History
For 90 years – lead by three generations of Sapers and Wallack family members – we have been dedicated to serving the needs of hundreds of clients throughout New England.
Abraham “Abe” Sapers started his career in insurance as a Sun Life Agent. Seeking independence and wanting to focus on his family, he established his own firm in 1932 and persuaded his son, Bill, to help run the business. The two built the firm together, with Bill working as a sub-agent until he could be discharged from his service in the Korean War.
After his military services, Bill opened his own agency. The business grew quickly and Bill joined forces with his father again to form the Sapers Insurance Agency in 1958. Through his affiliation with New England Mutual, Bill’s friendship with Norman Wallack added another piece as it evolved into the joint venture that would become one of the most recognized, successful, and respected partnerships in the industry under the name, Sapers & Wallack.
Soon after Abe’s retirement in 1975, the next generation joined the company, with Aviva Sapers, Bill’s daughter, and Ed Wallack, Norman’s son, taking up the mantle. Aviva and Ed worked their way up the ranks until taking over management positions alongside Bill.
Now an award-winning female-led business under Aviva’s leadership as CEO, the firm has added a robust Wealth Management practice and expanded into Group Benefits and P&C insurance via a close partnership with Hilb Group of New England. Combining the personalized customer service of the traditional company while modernizing the business for the digital age Sapers & Wallack has continued to grow the business by offering holistic, independent financial advice for clients.
