Strengthening our Toronto presence

As a full-service brokerage, Icon Insurance has provided coverage options for commercial and personal insurance customers since 2009. Located in the heart of Toronto, Icon Insurance professionals have extensive knowledge of the greater Toronto area, which helps the team cater to specific customer needs and provide expert guidance for coverage options.

The principals of Icon Insurance, Steve and Anastasia Manolakos, are excited about joining BrokerLink and share the following statement:

“Our priority is to be there for our customers when they need us most. BrokerLink has a great reputation for providing high-quality service with local expertise and I trust that by joining this brokerage, our customers will continue to be well taken care of.”

Building BrokerLink’s Barrie team

Established in 1968, Faulkner Insurance has provided several generations of customers in Barrie and the surrounding area with home, auto, motorcycle, commercial, marine, umbrella insurance, as well as specialty insurance for home-based businesses. The brokerage’s insurance professionals understand their customer needs well, as they also live and work in the community.

Icon Insurance and Faulkner Insurance team members will continue serving their communities as part of the BrokerLink team.

“Both Icon and Faulkner Insurance have developed meaningful customer relationships and are passionate about helping community members,” says Lindsay Loughridge, Vice President of Ontario. “At BrokerLink, we believe insurance is about people, and we’ll continue delivering local, customized insurance solutions, while providing our new team members access to technology and resources necessary to elevate the customer experience.”
