On Friday, March 16, 2018, an open house and ribbon cutting was held at 901 Simpson Ave., the doorstep of Ocean City’s Ninth Street corridor, the main entrance into town. With over 100 people zipping around talking, laughing and having a good time, William McMahon, Jr looked at his wife, Sandy, and uttered one word: “Pride.”

McMahon started the McMahon Insurance Agency in 1981, after purchasing what was then known as the Chattin-Halliday Agency. In 1991 he changed the name to McMahon Insurance.

The Ocean City couple raised seven kids. As their family grew, so did the success of their business. And in the ’90s they turned over operations of the agency to William McMahon III, President of the agency, and his sister, Maura McMahon Primus. Three other siblings also work at the agency, Michael, Patrick, and Brian.

“We are thankful. Everything worked out. They listened to us,” Sandy McMahon remarked about how their children continue to successfully run the family business.

During the ribbon cutting ceremony, the Rev. Peter Joyce of St. Maximillian Kolbe Parish in Marmora gave the benediction.

Michele Gillian, executive director of the Ocean City Regional Chamber of Commerce, presided over the ceremony along with Ocean City Mayor Jay Gillian. “On behalf of the Ocean City Chamber and City of Ocean City, we welcome you in the rebuilding of Ninth Street and investing in Ocean City, America’s Greatest Family Resort,” Michele Gillian said.

She pointed out that there can’t be enough good said about the McMahon family. Three generations of the family attended the ceremony. Two of the McMahons were Ocean City’s Citizen of the Year, another two McMahons were past presidents of the Ocean City Regional Chamber of Commerce.
