Press Release: Surex Adds Top 5 Brokerage to Accolades

MAGRATH, AB – Insurance Business announced their 2017 Top 10 Brokerages in Canada honours in the February issue of Insurance Business Canada, with Surex placing 5th on the list.

The recognition, awarded to 10 brokerages from hundreds of applicants across the country, is based on 13 key business areas including: revenue growth, amount of new hires within the company and policies/premium sold and retained.

‘’Looking at the companies in the four places ahead of us in the rankings, these are brokerages that have been around for 30-70 years before we even started,’’ Matthew Alston, COO of Surex, said. ‘’This speaks volumes to our business model, as well as the calibre and quality of colleagues we hire.’’

Surex Direct launched in 2012 as an online brokerage offering insurance in Alberta only. Ontario, Canada’s largest market, is on the brink of opening, which means Surex will soon provide insurance in six provinces and two territories.

Last year (2016) saw Surex grow from 31 to 65 employees. To accompany going from a small to a medium-sized business, another office was opened in Magrath, AB, as well as an office in Burlington, ON.

‘’We are happy with what we accomplished in 2016, but 2017 is a new year and we have new goals for what we are going to do this year,’’ Lance Miller, CEO of Surex, said. ‘’One of our core values focuses on urgency. We will continue to be an industry leader by investing in new technology and improving processes.’’

Along with being the 5th-ranked brokerage in Canada for 2017, Surex is also a finalist for this year’s Insurance Canada Technology Award.

In 2016, Surex placed 30th on the Startup 50 Canada list. Within the insurance industry, Surex was a finalist for both the Insurance Industry Employer of Choice Award and the KEAL Technology Award for Digital Innovation at the Insurance Business Awards.
