Meet the Team

John Ferullo

Agency Principal | (610) 431-4005 ext. 101

I was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA, and have been a resident of West Chester, Pa for the past 28 years.  My degree from Temple University is in Insurance and Risk Management. I opened the West Chester location of Ferullo Insurance Agencies in 1990 and a few years later decided to expand into the Philadelphia market with an additional location. 

My career in the insurance business has been very rewarding.  The most rewarding aspect is having the opportunity to educate my clients on how to protect their most important assets, so they can purchase the proper protection.

Personally, I enjoy cars both old and new, attending antique car shows, and spending time at the beach with my family. 

My staff and I like to give back to the community by participating in food drives such as Philabundance.

Martina Martin

Commercial Lines Team Lead | (610) 431-4005 ext. 104

I grew up in Allentown, Pennsylvania.  My education includes two bachelor’s degrees from West Chester University, one being a degree in Mathematics with a concentration in Actuarial Science.  My 3 years of experience in the insurance field includes both personal and commercial lines and I have attained the Commercial Lines Coverage Specialist designation.

I enjoy working with our commercial lines customers and recommending the proper coverages to protect their business.

Personally, I love to travel. Some of the places I have traveled include Israel, Australia, and Italy to name a few. I enjoy music and play 6 instruments. Studying different languages is one of my hobbies. My favorite place to be is the beach. I volunteer regularly including many non-profits such as different veteran non-profits like Warrior Canine Connection, youth organizations, and many others.

George Hatton

Office Manager | (215) 468-4116 ext. 111

As a life-long resident of Philadelphia, I understand the special insurance needs of our community. I have been protecting the assets of our customers with the proper insurance coverages since 1988. In my previous job, I traveled to many states instructing employees on the complexities of the insurance industry as a Corporate Training Manager. I am a licensed property/casualty and life/health agent in various states and am versed in personal and commercial lines insurance products.  I am currently the Office Manager in the Philadelphia location of the Ferullo Insurance Agencies. Listening to clients, assessing their insurance needs, and offering easily understood solutions and recommendations makes being an insurance professional exciting and fulfilling to me.

As a lifelong avid sports fan, I enjoy discussing the ups and downs of being a Philadelphia sports fanatic! I have always enjoyed coaching youth sports and had the pleasure to develop some exceptional athletes.  I enjoy trips to historical sites to re-visit our country’s past and driving to state parks to see the natural beauty that surrounds us.

I am an active member in my neighborhood as Community Director of the Sports Complex Special Services District. In cooperation with the professional sports teams, we protect the interests and concerns of the neighbors surrounding the sports complex. I am also a member of the St Vincent De Paul Society.

Austin Graf

Commercial Lines Account Manager | (610) 431-4005 ext. 120

I grew up in Downingtown, Pennsylvania and recently graduated from West Chester University with a degree in Finance. I am licensed in Property and Casualty Insurance.  My impressions about the insurance industry have been great and I am excited to work with friendly people in an environment that fits me best. I look forward to assisting people with their insurance needs. 

I am a die-hard fan of the futbol club in the English Premier League called Arsenal FC. I could go on and on about the hardships of supporting this club in the past 2-3 years.

Something I am passionate about is fantasy football. I help run an account on Twitter called “32 Beat Writers.”  If you are looking to win your league give us a follow!

When I am not working, I enjoy trying to make the best memories with my friends through various activities like boating, sports/sports events, hiking, etc. Even though I am two hours away from the closest ocean, I am very passionate about ocean cleanups.

Ryan Lauter

Associate Agent | (610) 431-4005 ext. 106

I am a graduate of the Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a B.S. in Business Management and Economics. I earned an M.S. in Organizational Leadership and Development from Cabrini University. During my 10 years in the insurance industry, I have specialized in Personal and Commercial Property & Casualty Insurance, Excess & Surplus Lines, Individual & Group Health Plans, Group Benefits, Individual Disability, and Life & Annuity products.  I enjoy working hand in hand with my clients to develop customized plans to fit their unique needs, cut costs, and protect those things they value most in life, as well as, assisting when a claim arises.

I enjoy spending time with my 3 beautiful daughters, playing ice hockey, skiing, hiking, biking, and fly-fishing (although I catch more trees and rocks than I do fish). Also, I enjoy watching the Philadelphia Eagles! I am a huge history buff and an avid collector of fossils and historical artifacts. If you want to talk about history just make sure you have plenty of time!

I actively support and volunteer with several organizations that focus on assisting underprivileged families and individuals suffering from the cruel and unforgiving disease of addiction.

Linda Notaro

Customer Advocate | (215) 468-4116 ext. 121

I grew up and still live in South Philadelphia. My 25 years of experience in the insurance industry have been in Property and Casualty Insurance. I enjoy helping people make the proper insurance decisions and hopefully they feel confident with my knowledge and assistance.

I have a nephew and niece whom I love very much.  In my downtime, I enjoy cooking, baking, and watching TV. I like being at home, enjoy going out to breakfast on the weekend, and whatever else comes along.

I am passionate about St Jude and St Jude Research for children.

Robert J Brown

Associate Agent | (215) 468-4116 ext. 110

I grew up in Philadelphia, PA, and was a Navy Veteran from 1993-1998.
I have over 15 years of experience in the insurance industry and there is nothing better to see than a client that walks out of the office knowing that they are completely satisfied with their coverage and service. That’s my favorite part of my job.
Personally, I love vacationing and seeing different places and things.

Ken Stella

Associate Agent | (215) 468-4116 ext. 109

I am originally from Pennington, New Jersey, and graduated from Barry University in Miami Shores with a B.A. in Public Relations and a minor in Marketing. I have been in the insurance industry since 2013. I started my career in the Claims Department as a Legal Transcriber/Service Representative and eventually branched out of claims. Currently, I am a Producer/Associate Agent with the Ferullo Insurance Agencies.  The best part of my job is helping clients with their insurance needs and providing peace of mind that when the “worst happens” not only are they covered but they are covered properly.

Cinema is my passion, so let’s talk about movies!  I was also a State Champion pole vaulter back in my earlier years. I typically use my free time to work out, relax with friends/family, and venture out into the world.

 I currently donate to the ACC to help animals in need and to the American Cancer Society.

Gianni Ferullo

Commercial Lines Account Manager | (610) 431-4005 ext. 116

I was born and raised in West Chester, Pennsylvania, and recently graduated from York College of Pennsylvania with a B.A. in History and a minor in Film.

I am licensed in Property and Casualty Insurance and have started my career in the insurance industry helping commercial clients manage their business risks.

My hobbies usually include the outdoors and I enjoy outdoor activities plus time with friends and family. I like to spend, as much time as possible, on the beach surfing and enjoying the ocean. 

Shari DePola

Customer Advocate | (610) 431-4005 ext. 105

I grew up in Duncansville, which is a borough in Blair County, Pennsylvania.  Duncansville is a small town with a population of a little over 1,000 residents.

I am a licensed agent with over 20 years of experience in the insurance industry in both personal and commercial lines. What excites me most about my work is helping clients understand the type of coverage they need to protect themselves and their families.  I want the client to feel comfortable and ask questions.

When I am not working, I am usually doing something fun with my two teenage sons.  My favorite way to spend the weekend is in Maryland, on the boat, or in the water.

Mike Simmons

Risk Advisors | (215) 468-4116 ext. 116

I’m South Philly born and bred, true to my roots. I live by the creed of treating others the way you want to be treated. I became an agent/producer on 01/04/2020, before insurance I sold “assurance” as a pre need counselor for the burial industry (wink). What I love about my job is knowing that I have contributed to someone’s life by protecting that which is valuable to them – they and their loved ones, there’s no better satisfaction.

Personally, I enjoy people, all people, and the commonality we all share protection and security. I love Trivia, and history is a passion. When not working, you can find me enjoying the new experience of being a grandparent, with a 2-year-old granddaughter, and a 5-month-old grandson. For volunteering activities, I enjoy supporting the Philadelphia Share program. When possible, I help with distributing food to those in need.
