Reg Ward Sr. obtained his life agent's license in 1967 after leaving Ontario Hydro. He began working for the Monarch Life Assurance Company which was purchased by North American Life Assurance in 1984. He then obtained his life broker's license with several companies in order to offer his clients a wider range of product and service choices. Reg Sr. received his Chartered Life Underwriters Designation and is a Life Member of the Million Dollar Round Table. He has won many awards for his sales ability, quality of service and is highly regarded by his peers for his abilities, knowledge and integrity. Although he retired in 2007 he still comes into the office frequently to keep an eye on the business. He is the solid foundation of our business.
In 1983 the business of A J Allin Insurance Brokers in Cobourg was purchased. Our business moved from offices in the family home to the office used by A J Allin Insurance. In 1984 we moved to the Elektra Television building on Division Street. Then in November 1992 we purchased our current office building at 409 Division Street.
In January 1996 we purchased Lockhart Insurance Brokers in Hastings and Campbellford. In March 1997 the Hastings office moved into our own building on Front Street East where it remains today. Our Campbellford office is now located on Front Street South, sharing space with Royal Lepage Realty Services.
