Welcome to Low Insurance
I started my insurance career in the early 90’s as a summer student. I literally started at the bottom in the file room, yes way back then there were rooms full of paper files. Underwriters would call out a number and I would run to retrieve that file for them. It was an inefficient time but I got my exercise. After school I got my first full time insurance job at Wawanesa Mutual Insurance Co in Moncton. An entry level position but instead of filing I had my own desk and computer, no email but a computer. I was doing data entry for personal insurance products but I realized early on that this wasn’t for me. I was offered a position as a commercial lines underwriter with Economical Mutual Insurance Co in 1991 and that’s when things started getting interesting for me. I worked at Economical for 5 years honing my skills, identifying risk and offering suggested coverage to protect against that risk. Then I met my future wife and a change was necessary.
I moved to Fredericton in 1996 so that I could be close to her, and I started working in sales for a local brokerage. Instead of underwriting commercial risks, I was selling commercial products for those risks and working with underwriters to help me get the best products and prices for these businesses I was approaching.
