WHY HOT? ONTARIO’S BROKER OF THE YEAR
It doesn’t get any hotter than being named Broker of the Year, and Linda Papadopoulos certainly earned the title through her years of hard work and community involvement.

A broker for more than 29 years, Papadopoulos sits on a fundraising committee that supports the Good Shepherd Centre for Hamilton, and is a major supporter and fundraiser for the Women of the Year Award with that city’s YMCA – not to mention being a volunteer career ambassador for the Insurance Institute and Mohawk College, facilitating insurance courses for young brokers and industry professionals looking to pursue a career in insurance.

And if that wasn’t enough, she also teaches risk management courses at McMaster University and has developed a mentorship program for young employees at her firm.
