Mayor David Kogon congratulates Archway Insurance on being named top brokerage in Canada

Being named the top brokerage firm in Canada is a major achievement for Archway Insurance, says Amherst Mayor David Kogon.

“It shows a business can thrive in a community such as ours,” Kogon said, after learning the Amherst-headquartered firm had received the ranking from Insurance Business Canada, a national industry web magazine.

“On behalf of Amherst town council, I want to congratulate Archway Insurance on this achievement and wish them even greater success in the future.”

The mayor noted that Archway Insurance president Gina McFetridge said Amherst was “perfectly situated at the centre of our 22 Nova Scotia and New Brunswick locations.”

“The Town of Amherst is geographically located in the centre of the Maritimes and that could give any business whose clients, customers and partners are spread throughout the region a strategic advantage should they choose to locate here in our great community,” Kogon said.

Amherst Insurance learned that it had received the ranking from the magazine earlier this week. The firm was founded in 1985. Today, after doubling its size in 2017, it has 22 offices and employs 150 people.
