Matt and Lance
Our Story

Lance Miller and Matt Alston struck up a friendship as fellow business owners from Magrath, a small town in Southern Alberta. Miller owned a bricks and mortar insurance brokerage and Alston owned a direct marketing company when one day, Miller asked Alston if he would be interested in buying Miller’s father’s insurance brokerage in nearby Raymond, Alberta. In 2005, Miller risked everything to purchase the brokerage in Magrath. The Banking Act was being restructured, and major financial institutions were looking to get into the insurance industry. Miller and Alston wondered why consumers would want to purchase insurance from banks, and surmised that it was because the massive organizations had the tools and resources to provide a good customer experience. They sought to do better by providing an exceptional experience to their customers, as well as other stakeholders.

While the initial plan was to expand the business by acquiring other brick and mortar brokerages, they soon saw the tremendous opportunity to become an online insurance provider, which would allow them to scale the company while still running the business from Magrath. Surex launched its beta site in 2012. The company has been bootstrapped by Miller and Alston, and in the early years, the pair reinvested profit back into the company.
Today, Surex is Canada’s fastest growing online insurance provider!
