This 83-year-old, third-generation brokerage, based in Toronto, Canada is co-owned by Chris Gory, and is a 32-user TAM agency.
Gory worked for Applied Systems as an early WinTam support technician before making the move in 1997 to his in-law's property-casualty insurance brokerage. In 2000, the brokerage spun off its employee benefits department into a separate company, and Gory became owner and president. Four years ago, his wife and brother-in-law bought the property-casualty brokerage from their parents, and the owners decided to expand the businesses to several Canadian provinces. Over the past 2 years, Insurance Portfolio has started expanding further across Canada. The brokerage also is increasing its program business through affiliations with the Canadian Franchise Assoc. and engineering groups, Gory said. None of this growth could have been possible without automation, which has streamlined workflows and integrated customer information across multiple lines of business. Even in a recession, the brokerage averages 93 percent retentions, has increased staffing, and has experienced increases in both premium volume and policy count in all but 2 months, Gory said. The real value of technology lies in its ability to free up users for true customer service, he said. "Social networking and other high-tech marketing techniques are great, but they can't replace the personal touch," Gory said.
