Gifford Carr Insurance Group expands footprint in Northern Ontario
Gifford Carr Insurance Group grows its local impact in Northern Ontario with a branch in Sudbury. The new Sudbury branch opens less than one year after launching North Bay in 2021.
The new Sudbury location is run by a local team of experienced and passionate insurance experts including Lorna Courchesne leading the Personal Lines practice with over 30 years’ experience in the insurance industry and supreme reputation for customer service and Robyn Baronette CAIB, with over 16 years’ experience and solid customer service foundation which guides how she operates today supporting our Commercial Lines clients in Northern Ontario.
“We are building something special in the North” commented Gifford Carr Insurance Group President Matthew Carr, CIP. “With all the consolidation in Sudbury, we see an opportunity to establish relationships and be a valuable advisor for our clients”. Northern Ontario is poised for growth, with a new resource in Gifford Carr a team motivated to see our local businesses and neighbours succeed, Sudbury now has the insurance team to support it.
“We live in the North and work for the people in the North”, Courchesne joining the Gifford Carr team in the summer of 2021 leading up to the Sudbury expansion noted, “What sets Gifford Carr apart for me is their genuine commitment to service. It is what sold me on joining the team, it resonates with my values. You can buy insurance anywhere, but you can’t get the service anywhere. We are results-oriented, we always put the client first, and are determined to find insurance solutions that work”
“Northern Ontario consumers have very limited choice in who they can work with to ensure they have the proper coverage with a broker who understands their inherent risks. Bringing together a seasoned veteran brokerage team in the North, that lives in the North, our team has an appetite for our resource-based economy. Our team specializes in Mining, Forestry, and all the companies that support industries unique to Northern Ontario. It is all about knowledge, skill, and negotiation is what Gifford Carr brings to the table for our current and new customers.” explained North Bay Branch Manager, Bernie Robertson CAIB, CPIB, CRM.
