B&W Insurance Brokers is one of this year's Insurance Business Top Brokerages.
B&W INSURANCE BROKERS
Location: Langley, BC
Head: Jan Stamnes
Specialties: Transportation, personal lines
Focusing on a single specialization has paid dividends for this BC-based transportation shop. Cornering Vancouver’s trucking sector has set up B&W Insurance Brokers to adapt their business model across several locations, and they have since added personal lines to complement the transportation business. This granular approach has allowed them to grow to six locations across British Columbia – including two that offer ‘drive-thru insurance,’ a concept that was born when the company used a former takeout restaurant for office space.
B&W has relied on a variety of transport industry events and trade shows to cement their reputation for expertise in the segment. They also continually lobby insurance company partners for trucking-friendly policies to better address client demand. Add to that a culture of employee growth and development that has seen some employees remain with the company for three decades, and it’s safe to say that B&W is doing something right.
