ALIGNED CEO Andrew Clark – A Canadian Insurance Leader
Recently elected to the Guelph Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, ALIGNED CEO Andrew Clark is a well-known for doing things differently. As recently as 2014, Canadian Insurance Top Broker named CEO Andrew Clark as “Top 10 under 40”.
After a decade of working at large brokerages, Clark spotted a gap in the market, and the opportunity to better align interests with business insurance clients across Canada. ALIGNED’s fee-for-service model encourages clients to select from three levels of service: bronze, silver or gold and is a cornerstone of the organization. CEO Andrew Clark is breaking the rules when it comes to building a brokerage that puts choice first and foremost.
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.
