Editor’s Note: Congratulations to the new owners in the Morrison Agencies Ltd. businesses in Deloraine and Hartney. Morrison Agencies has been a well-known and respected business in the two communities for 63 years. Happy retirement to Don and John R.
Morrison Agencies Ltd. are pleased to announce a change in ownership. Jon Morrison and Jennifer McMechan have acquired ownership of the brokerage.
Jon and Jennifer bring years of insurance industry experience to the company and are extremely excited and proud to be able to keep the company locally owned and operated as it has been since 1955.
Jon was born and raised in Hartney. His grandfather (John L) started the business in 1955 before his Uncle (Don) and Father (John R) eventually took over. Jon is a business graduate of Mount Royal College (Calgary) and entered the insurance industry with Wawanesa Insurance as an adjuster in Wawanesa, MB before moving out west to take job with an insurance brokerage (Lundgren & Young Insurance) in Edmonton and Calgary. He spent 12 years with the same brokerage before moving back in 2014 to take over John R’s position in the Hartney office. This is where he now resides with his wife Kelly (Caldwell) and sons Alec and Nate.
Jennifer was born in Manitou, MB and lived in Swan River, Glenboro, Deloraine, Flin Flon before coming back to Deloraine permanently. She is a business graduate of Assiniboine Community College and got into the insurance business as a broker with Barkers Insurance in 1996 where she would work for two years. In 1998 Jennifer was hired by Morrison Agencies in Deloraine and has been working there ever since. Jennifer currently resides in Deloraine with her husband Russ and son Jagger.
You may have also noticed some new faces at each of our offices. We are pleased to introduce our two new staff members, Amy Lewis and Kristen Kirkpatrick. Amy will primarily be working out of our Hartney office and Kristen out of our Deloraine office. They have both already obtained their autopac training and are working on getting their level one insurance license.
Don and Joanne are still working in the Deloraine and Hartney offices during the transition phase.
We appreciate all of your past and continued support and look forward to serving you in the future.
