Shared Ownership Aligns Staff At Award Winning Brokerage
Word keeps getting out! ALIGNED Insurance recently won the Insurance Business Canada Award for Best Brokerage Under 10 People. CEO Andrew Clark notes: “It’s really a team award. We built this brokerage from scratch – we have a long way to go but this is an amazing milestone.”1 Two years running, ALIGNED Insurance has been recognized as one of Canada’s leading insurance brokerages. Our reputation for delivering commercial insurance options that are truly ALIGNED with bottom lines is making headlines. And this is exactly why Insurance Business Canada recently published an article about what differentiates ALIGNED entitled, “Shared ownership aligns staff at award winning brokerage”.
What Makes ALIGNED Insurance An Award Winning Brokerage?
Interviewing Andrew Clark, president and CEO for Insurance Business Canada, Bethan Moorcraft notes that, “Canada’s insurance marketplace continues to be dominated by small, local brokerages. Many of these brokerages are family-run and family-focused – and they only employ a handful of staff.”2
“But “hard work and consistency” pays off, according to Andrew Clark, president and CEO of ALIGNED Insurance. His company recently won the Best Brokerage Under 10 People award at the Insurance Business Canada Awards 2017 – an accolade he attributes to “hard work day-in, day-out” and winning each client one at a time.

“2017 was a year of a number of things for ALIGNED. First and foremost, our focus was on our team. We launched an employee ownership program, which brought all of our staff together and really solidified the organization,” said Clark.
“We distributed shares to everyone in the ALIGNED team, so that every single employee is an owner and shares in the success of the brokerage. We have a great group of people who are all working towards a common goal, which is a great foundation to build the business upon.”3
People Taking Ownership: ALIGNED Insurance Brokerage
People are what sets ALIGNED apart. According to the article, ““At ALIGNED, everyone pitches in to do whatever’s needed. We’re all in this together and we get the job done,” Clark told Insurance Business. “We’re strong in that the whole team is really close. We all work extremely hard and everyone supports each other. It’s very personal and everyone’s contribution really makes a big difference.”4

This commitment of people getting the job done is fully aligned with why ALIGNED is standing out in the minds of Canadian commercial insurance clients, “Since day one, ALIGNED has been committed to giving our clients “MORE” than the typical insurance brokerage through some or all of our 18 points of differentiation.”5
