Meet the Crew

Tommy Mott, Principal

Tommy Mott joined his family's business in 1993 and has been selling all forms of Marine Insurance for 23 years. He grew up boating and fishing in Montauk and other parts of the Long Island Sound, so this career path was a natural fit. In his free time you might find him snowboarding, fishing, hunting or trying just about anything else having to do with the great outdoors.

Kathy Gryski, Principal

Kathy started her career at the Mott Agency in 1991 working under her parents Al and Ann. Having grown up on her father's boats fishing, she gained a love for the water, and was a mate on her Dad's charter boat while working at the Oyster Bay Boat Shop. In 2005 Kathy took over the family business with her brother and partner, Tommy Mott. She is a full time mom to three teenage boys who keep her pretty busy, but tries to find time to enjoy being on the water, the beach or traveling whenever possible.

Kristen Guido, Personal Lines Sales Manager

Born and raised in Huntington, she was a team member of the Bay Crest Beach swim team as well as the Head of the Bay Club where she would often sail and water ski. Kristen loves to travel, especially to the Caribbean, so after attending Nassau Community College she accepted a job at Austin Travel. In 2002, she decided to combine her interests and joined the Alan R. Mott Agency as an Underwriter’s Assistant.
