Whitby, ON, January 15, 2024: This year will see Mitch Insurance continuing to grow its footprint in Ontario by establishing branches in different communities throughout the province.
The brokerage’s first branch is opening in Kingston at 1329 Gardiners Road, and will be led by Kris Giddy. Giddy brings over a dozen years of insurance expertise to the new branch. Mitch Insurance Kingston will specialize in providing commercial lines coverages, but the brokerage also offers a full suite of personal lines products to its clientele.
“Mitch has an established brand, a reputation for innovation and is widely recognized as an industry leader,” said Kris Giddy, Managing Partner at Mitch Insurance Kingston. “I’m thrilled about the possibilities that operating my own branch will create, and love that we’re able to provide people in Kingston with another brokerage option and ultimately more choice when it comes to their insurance.
“My team and I are working hard to develop long-term relationships with clients that are founded on top-notch service, advice and trust,” added Giddy. “At Mitch Insurance Kingston, we don’t want to just win your business once – we want to build lasting partnerships that grow stronger with each passing year.”
Mitch Insurance plans to launch a second Ontario branch this winter. The brokerage intends to further expand this model by opening additional branches with high-achieving, entrepreneurial brokers who want to take their insurance careers to the next level by building and managing their own business.
“We’re excited to embark on this new journey and to continue to grow and strengthen our brand,” said Mitch Insurance CEO, Adam Mitchell. “Kris is a fantastic leader and broker, and has established strong relationships with businesses in Kingston and the surrounding communities. We’re looking forward to supporting him and can’t wait to see where he takes our Kingston branch. When talented, ambitious people like Kris work with a great system like we have at Mitch, it paves the way for numerous opportunities and sustained success.”
