CEO Andrew Clark – A Recognized Leader in the Canadian Insurance Industry
This nomination is yet another example of industry recognition for ALIGNED Insurance’s President and CEO Andrew Clark. Canadian Insurance Top Broker named CEO Andrew Clark as “Top 10 under 40” in 2014. After a decade of working at large brokerages, Clark spotted a gap in the market, and says the name gives it away. It’s about aligning interests with clients, he says, because “there’s an opportunity there, and I pursued it.” ALIGNED’s cornerstone is their fee-for-service model, in which they offer clients three levels of service: bronze, silver and gold. “We have a very frank conversation about what service level do they want from their broker… It’s just a very different conversation, which really seems to resonate with clients.” 4
With offices in Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver as well as a national operations centre in Cambridge, Ontario, ALIGNED is in growth mode, most recently acquiring a firm that was founded in 1998 by the merger of three well-established brokerage firms with roots that go back to 1912. People are at the heart of ALIGNED – an insurance organization that continues to set itself apart from other national brokers.
