Excel Insurance Group Strategically Hires Sean Morrow to Adopt a Digital Approach and Reinvent the Brokerage of the Future

Effective March 23, 2016, Excel Insurance Group Inc., headquartered in Western Canada and 100% independently owned and operated, has appointed Sean Morrow as Executive Director. Engaged in a leadership position with Excel, Sean brings an extensive digital background to fuel Excel’s growth as the company continues to grow across Canada and explore opportunities in the online brokerage service space.

“This move represents specific action and a decided approach for Excel: we want to be a brokerage of the future and are investing in talent and technologies that bring us there,” says Scott Treasure, Board Member, owner of the independent Excel office Treasures Insurance & Risk Management, and Vice-President of the Insurance Brokers Association of Canada (IBAC). “We have grown significantly in the last 5 years, from 2 offices to 8,” continued Scott. “Through strategic hires like Sean and others, Excel continues to distance itself from competitors while soon differentiating through online services and workflow automation.”

Sean’s Background

Sean Morrow relocated to Edmonton from Montreal after spending a decade and half working with a number of successful technology startups and venture capital firms. He mentors in the startup community and continues to look for ways to transform traditional business models by developing and implementing technologies that pioneer initiatives and challenge the status quo.

Future Growth: Excel Insurance Group’s Strategy

Excel prides itself in the selective nature through which new independent brokerages qualify to join the Group. Brokers are chosen based on integrity, reputation and involvement in their communities, as well as a commitment to an internal succession plan. Of course, professional insurance and risk management expertise and potential are high-value factors too. Excel Insurance Group is proud to help facilitate ownership transition as we work to promote entrepreneurialism and support of the communities in which we do business. Emphasizing a digital value proposition only increases the list of advantages found by joining Excel Insurance Group, all of which are possible while remaining fully independent.

“Excel Insurance Group is working actively to evolve the insurance broker service delivery model,” said Sean Morrow. “With a view that the industry as a whole is far behind other financial service sectors like banking, there is significant room to improve and expand available services to personal lines and commercial clients, both off and online.”
