Our Story

EARLY YEARS
In 1968 Rosalyn Binday, a mother with a young family, did something nearly unheard of at the time, she started to sell insurance. Determined to succeed, she invested time in her clients and discovered that her community had a need for a high quality service provider. Roz recalled, “Everyone needed insurance for their homes, cars, or businesses. I found we could make buying insurance a more positive experience by getting to know our clients and their families.” That became the mission of Advocate Brokerage, which specializes in providing personal and commercial insurance throughout Westchester County and the surrounding tri-state area.

A FAMILY LEGACY
As Advocate grew; it became among the finest customer service agencies in affluent Westchester County. Roz’s husband, Ronald Binday, joined the firm, bringing over 25 years of experience as a top performer for Allstate Insurance. Their son Glenn Binday grew up knowing that one day he would join the firm and is now a principal leading the Commercial Lines division.  Their daughter Denise Koslowsky also joined the firm after spending some time in the art world, and is now a principal leading the Personal Lines division.
