The PAL Insurance Brokers Award for Young Gun of the Year


FROM 2018 to 2019, Cole Leitch led Avant Insurance to exponential growth, culminating in Avant being the only Manitoba company and only insurance brokerage named to Canadian Business’ Startup 50 list of Canada’s fastestgrowing new businesses.


“If we’re keeping our staff happy, they’re going to make our clients happy”


“One of the big things when we started Avant is we felt that there were a lot of brokers that were worried about the almighty dollar and what their bottom-line profit is, and they will ignore everything else,” Leitch said. “We started Avant because we wanted to have somebody who truly cared about the clients, truly cared about the staff. If we’re keeping our staff happy, they’re going to make our clients happy, and if we’re keeping our clients happy, we’re going to make money.”


“We feel the young guns are going to have a lead role and be key players in the future of the insurance market and the world,” added Matt Taylor, general manager of award sponsor PAL Insurance Brokers. “As we go forward, we feel the online platform presence is where the insurance market is headed.”
