Chergey Insurance has been in operation since 1987. However, the history and our involvement with the auto industry runs much deeper. ''Grandpa Chergey'' came to this great country to chase the American dream. He arrived in Detroit leaving his family in Hungary to work for the Fisher Brothers (later to become part of General Motors) in tool and dye. His youngest son, Richard ''Dick'' Chergey began insuring auto dealers in 1961 on the east coast. In the 1970's, he started moving west arriving in California with the Frank B. Hall program. Two of Dick's sons became owners in a new car dealership in New Hampshire. In 2005, Dan Chergey took over for Dick as president of Chergey Insurance. Prior to joining Chergey Insurance Dan played professional baseball for 6 years with the Florida Marlins organization.
