Deerfield Associates is named to remind our clients of historic values, a strong work ethic, integrity and the academic foundation of founder Doug Cooney’s upbringing in Western Massachusetts.
Born in Northampton, he grew up a block from Smith College, spent his college years in Amherst and married a woman from Deerfield. Deerfield is a beautiful, historic town surrounded by a hard working farming community, and home to a superb academy. Hence the name Deerfield Associates made perfect sense. It still does.
