Billyard Insurance Group (BIG) is expanding in Ontario with the opening of new branch offices in Ancaster and Westboro (Ottawa).
According to BIG director of business development Jennifer Smith, the new offices come as the brokerage gears up for another year of "unparalleled company growth."
“If the exceptional calibre of managing partners such as these is any indication of where we are headed as an organization, then 2022 is shaping up to be a BIG year for us,” said Smith.
The Ancaster branch will be headed by managing partners Daniel Adoranti and David Hazell, who are also both Ancaster residents themselves. The branch will help local clients with their home, auto, and business insurance needs.
“For BIG, this is a major success story of career growth,” said Smith. “We are thrilled to have Daniel and David continue their partnership with us in the next stage of their careers.”
“We want to create a place where brokers can reach their full potential and have long, successful careers,” added Hazell, who is an award-winning commercial lines expert.
“By taking a relational approach, our reliable advice and risk management will provide incredible value to our clients.”
Meanwhile, BIG's new office in Westboro will be managed by managing partners Rosa Sou and Brian Powell. Like the other new office, the Westboro branch will offer solutions and advice for home, auto, and business insurance, as well as life insurance.
"BIG Westboro is a great start to this eastward movement in 2022," commented Smith.
"The ability to have the autonomy of our own office while receiving the backend support of a fine-tuned organization was a major factor in our decision to partner with BIG," said Sou, who added that her team "[knows] the value of good customer service," and that they want to find solutions, answer questions, and be accessible to clients.
