As of September 1st, 2018, Rempel Insurance Brokers Ltd. has been acquired by Shawn Graydon, a long-term leader within the company and industry.
“It is important to us to have the brokerage continue into the future. Rempel Insurance’s clients and employees will benefit greatly from Shawn’s expertise and commitment to the ongoing success of a local insurance brokerage,” expressed Lynn Rempel, former President and CEO. Lynn stated, “Dale would think this is awesome! He would be very proud of all our employees’ accomplishments and so pleased to see where the company is today,” she added.
