I’m a small-town boy, born and raised in Southern Ontario and after college I ventured out West to see what Calgary had in store for me.
Like many of people in the Insurance Industry out there I sort of just fell into insurance; I found a job as a Marketing Rep for Canada Worldwide Underwriting Agencies in 2005 and then soon after their sister company PAL Insurance needed help Underwriting so I moved there. I stayed with PAL for 5 years and moved to APRIL Canada when it bought CWW.
I am now moving from underwriting back into the Marketing/ Sales part of things. I very much enjoy my day to day tasks and the people I work with are more like family then co-workers. I plan to visit new and existing brokers that APRIL has worked with over the years.
I really look forward to seeing many new faces and finding out how APRIL can become your go- to MGA of choice!
