Davis Insurance Brokers, which closed August 1; Welland-based Kuhn & Associates Insurance and Financial Services (Kuhn & Associates Insurance), and Halifax-based Current Maritime Insurance, both of which closed September 1. This brings BrokerLink’s total acquisitions to 18 so far in 2022.
Expanding our service in Southern Ontario
Based in Mississauga, J. W. Davis Insurance Brokers has offered tailored insurance solutions to meet the specific needs of customers province-wide for close to nine decades. Established in 1936, J. W. Davis Insurance Brokers has provided personalized service for home, auto, marine and business insurance, as well as coverage for cottage, recreational vehicles, rental properties and more.
“We’ve always taken pride in providing the best service possible to our community members and tailoring our customers’ insurance to their specific needs,” says Roxanne McKenzie, President of J. W. Davis Insurance Brokers. “BrokerLink is an established, customer-driven brokerage, and I’m confident our customers will be well taken care of.”
Located in Welland, Ontario, Kuhn & Associates Insurance has served the Welland and Fonthill communities and surrounding areas with specialized insurance solutions since 1984, offering customers tailored home, auto and business insurance. Kuhn & Associates Insurance’s dedicated team members have decades of combined experience providing their community members with expert advice and exceptional customer service.
Investing in Atlantic Canada communities
Since 1961, Current Maritime Insurance has served local Nova Scotia communities with tailored home, auto and business insurance solutions.

The professional insurance advisors from each of these distinguished brokerages will continue to serve local community members as part of the BrokerLink team.
“We’re excited to welcome our new team members and customers from J. W. Davis Insurance Brokers, Kuhn & Associates Insurance and Current Maritime Insurance to the BrokerLink family,” said Joe D’Annunzio, President of BrokerLink. “We believe that insurance is about people, not things, and the values of our new team members align with ours, specifically, being customer driven, striving for excellence and engaging in their communities.”
