Gifford Carr Insurance Group appoints Andrew Emmans as Head of Business Development
Ontario’s local insurance brokerage, Gifford Carr Insurance Group, announced today the appointment of Andrew Emmans as their Head of Business Development. Following an entrepreneurial career of nearly two decades, Emmans will continue to focus his passions for people and the community in his new role. He will be responsible for identifying and expanding into new areas of opportunity and preserving Gifford Carr’s core values while building new relationships both within Gifford Carr and the communities served.
Emmans is an entrepreneurial professional with a wide breadth of business experience. His dynamic, people-first approach has allowed him to build a career on the value of relationships. His new role will allow him to develop long-term business growth strategies that improve day-to-day operations and overall client satisfaction. Emmans is eager to bring his passion for investing in individuals and teams to Gifford Carr.
“Having someone of Andrew’s experience, skillset, and professionalism to lead our Business Development team will be a big asset for our clients, prospects, and account executives alike”, says Matthew Carr, CIP, president of Gifford Carr Insurance Group. “I look forward to working with him to further grow our team and our impact in the communities we serve.”
Emmans truly understands the complexities and inner workings many corporations encounter, as he has supported multiple businesses at various stages of their development. He approaches each situation with careful consideration and a growth mindset and will be a valuable resource to the developing Gifford Carr team and the communities it serves.
“I have run my own business for quite some time and funny enough have been and continue to be a client myself of Gifford Carr. I know the organization is well-positioned for growth, the team is solid and has an incredibly strong foundation. Another reason that hooked me was a conversation with Matt where I asked, “why me?” I have no insurance background and he eagerly answered, I’m looking for someone who does not have a preconceived notion of how things are to be done. I took it that he did not want to hear the words “We have always done it this way”. This type of thinking can kill creativity, all businesses need to evolve and I think the Gifford Carr team embraces that wholeheartedly”, says Emmans. “He didn’t know it at the time, but that sealed the deal for me.”
Mindful of the impact on local businesses across Ontario over the past few years, the Gifford Carr Insurance Group team is committed to nurturing existing client relationships while tapping into new markets and developing insurance innovations that better serve customers.
Emmans says, “I am always a student in everything I do from parenthood to business, and I have lots to learn in this exciting new endeavour. Being a part of this team will help me to develop new skills and apply existing ones I have spent years honing. This is a very exciting opportunity and I know there are some big things ahead with Gifford”. We are bound for an exciting era ahead as the Gifford Carr team continues to grow across Ontario.
