TORONTO, JULY 11, 2023 – Brokerlink Inc. (BrokerLink) continues to grow in Ontario and New Brunswick with two new acquisitions: Donnell Insurance Brokers Ltd. (Donnell Insurance) and Kent & White Insurance Ltd. (Kent & White Insurance). Donnell Insurance and Kent & White Insurance joined BrokerLink July 1, enabling the company to expand service in Burlington, ON and Edmundston, NB and extend expertise to the northeastern New Brunswick community of Bathurst.
Building BrokerLink’s Burlington team
Since 1983, Donnell Insurance has built a solid network of customers who appreciate dedicated service, and value-trusted, local advice. For 40 years, the full-service brokerage offered home, auto and business insurance solutions, tailored to the unique needs of the Burlington community and surrounding areas.
“Our priority has always been to provide the best products and services to our customers and remain customer-driven through seeking out innovative solutions,” says Joe Donnell, president of Donnell Insurance. “By joining BrokerLink, I’m confident our customers will continue receiving the same local advice, with additional product options available to them through the resources of a national organization.”
Expanding service in New Brunswick
Founded in 1946, Kent & White Insurance has offered solutions to thousands of individuals and families, as well as commercial insurance to organizations small and large. As one of the largest fully bilingual commercial insurance brokerages in Northern New Brunswick, Kent & White Insurance has fulfilled diverse customer needs, from professional firms and restaurants, to multi-province retailers across Atlantic Canada.
Throughout its over 75 years in business, Kent & White Insurance has remained committed to its customers and community members. In 2022, the brokerage was presented with the prestigious CNA Award for Excellence in Corporate Social Responsibility at the Insurance Business Canada Awards gala for supporting important causes, including meaningful contributions to local hospitals, schools, national veterans organizations and the Canadian Red Cross relief efforts in Ukraine.
“The strong ties these brokerages have in their communities are to be admired,” says Michael Stack, BrokerLink’s Vice President of Acquisitions. “We plan to continue building relationships in Burlington, Edmundston, Bathurst and the outlying communities, as we extend our knowledge and expertise to new and existing customers.
Since 1991 we’ve had a vision: to build a network of trusted insurance brokers across the country, working directly in the communities we serve. With over 200 branches and 3,400 employees, we’re proud to say that BrokerLink has become one of Canada’s largest property and casualty insurance brokerages.
