It was 1994 and I was a young accountant who had just started working at one of Hamilton's longest-established insurance brokerages. Unfortunately, the owner was forced to retire due to declining health. I came home from work one day and said to my wife Jill that I thought we should buy the company, solve its financial problems and keep serving its customers. We had two young children and a third on the way at the time, but we set to work. At the time Jill worked at The Hamilton Spectator as a reporter. She stayed in that role for the next 9 years, and then retired from her position as an editorial manager to look after our kids. Jill re-joined our brokerage in 2012. In the early years, many evenings and weekends were spent around our kitchen table writing letters and stuffing envelopes. Jill and I have worked together as a team on our brokerage ever since.
Our company has grown from one office in downtown Hamilton with three employees to nine offices across Southern Ontario and more than 80 employees. Our brokerage’s roots date back to 1895. Morison Insurance has offices in Simcoe, Hamilton, Hagersville, Waterford, Delhi, Oakville, Tillsonburg, Port Dover and St. Catharines. For ease of service, our Morison Insurance customers can visit any of our nine offices where our brokers will look after all of your insurance needs.
The most important thing to Jill and me is to serve every customer beyond their expectations with the right insurance at the most competitive price. Everyone on our Morison Insurance team supports this goal every day. Our team is, quite simply, the best. Our Morison Insurance ‘family’ is a caring group of people. We care about our customers, we care about the communities we serve and we know we are the best insurance professionals to serve you. This team is the ‘Morison Insurance Family’ to Jill and me.
