A second-generation insurance professional, Scott Gilmour is following in the footsteps of his father, a longtime senior leader at a large multinational brokerage. In 2013, after spending time as a lawyer at a global corporate law firm and managing divisions for one of Canada’s largest construction companies, Gilmour joined the Toronto office of QBE Services, a Lloyd’s syndicate specializing in insuring complex risks.

Relying on the experience he gained in his prior roles, Gilmour has worked to significantly grow QBE’s presence in the construction insurance market, building a multi-million-dollar book of mechanical contractor, roofer, road-builder and specialty subcontractor clients.

“Scott has quickly built up a reputation of being a professional, intelligent underwriter who is respected by his colleagues, the underwriting community and the independent brokerage network as a whole,” a peer says. “Scott acts as a strong ambassador for the industry and embraces the advancements of technology in our sector and the impact it makes to corporate risk management. Scott represents the future of our industry while acting as a good example for other young professionals in the industry.”

Following his time at QBE, Gilmour has recently teamed with four partners to launch a boutique construction-focused insurance brokerage.
