Navacord Partners with Ontario-based Newman Insurance, Expanding Agricultural Footprint
Toronto, ON, June 22, 2022
Navacord Corp., Canada’s fourth-largest commercial insurance brokerage, is welcoming Newman, Oliver & McCarten Insurance Brokers Ltd. as their latest Broker Partner.
More commonly known as Newman Insurance and headquartered in Campbellford, Ontario, the multigenerational firm first planted roots in the province more than 40 years ago and has amalgamated with 13 brokerages since they were founded in the 1980s.
Specializing in a diverse portfolio of personal and commercial insurance needs, Newman Insurance takes pride in their home, auto and commercial risk management, with emphasis on their deepest niche—farming.
“As a family-oriented, community-first brokerage, it was imperative for us that our partner not only aligned with our values, but championed and amplified them,” says Calvin Newman, President, Newman Insurance. “We look forward to taking Newman Insurance to new heights in tandem with Navacord’s access, support and encouragement.”
With offices across nine towns/cities in Southeastern Ontario, Newman Insurance understands the merit that a white-glove service—or for the farming community, a work-glove service—brokerage brings to their clients in these tight-knit communities, especially those within the agriculture sector. Newman’s local touch and expert-led understanding of their clients and their unique risks have become trusted trademarks of the firm.
“Newman Insurance has intricate knowledge of their communities and clients, which is a vital part of the service approach for any great brokerage,” says T. Marshall Sadd, Executive Chairman, Navacord. “We are eager to welcome them onto the Navacord roster and to deepen our service offerings within Southeastern Ontario.”
Newman Insurance will be supported by fellow Navacord Partner, Whitley Insurance & Financial Services, and in the coming months the two firms will come together under a Whitley Newman banner.
The addition of Newman Insurance marks Navacord’s tenth partnership in 2022 with a robust pipeline aligned for the remainder of the year.
