YOUNG GUNS 2015

Meet the young stars making waves in the Canadian insurance industry WELCOME TO Insurance Business Canada’s annual Young Guns report. We asked you to nominate insurance professionals 35 and younger who had already made a splash in the industry, and your suggestions came flooding in. It was tough going, but we’ve whittled the list down to 38 young people we think merit a mention.

From the already seasoned pros who’ve started their own businesses to the young producers whose success has made them mentors to their peers, all of the men and women on this list have proven themselves to be exceptional. Despite their youth, they’re some of the top producers in their companies, racking up tens of millions of dollars in volume. A rapidly changing industry demands fresh ideas and perspectives, and these hot young professionals hold the future of insurance in their hands.
