David Kennedy and Greg Kruk met as teenagers and they have been good friends since, both personally and professionally. When they were both looking at ways to expand their respective insurance brokerages, they decided to join forces with the opening of a shared office in Toronto in 2015 – Liberty Village Quotes. The new sales-focused venture allowed them to test news ideas and technologies, and also investigate new products and opportunities that they had each wanted to focus on.

The success of both the office and their working relationship encouraged David and Greg to consider broader opportunities, and with the agreement of their respective business partners Peter Blodgett and James W. Grieve, the idea of Sentinel Risk Insurance Group Limited was born.  Sentinel is well positioned to expand upon JWK’s sales culture and commercial expertise, while being able to take advantage of technical and administrative services provided by Darling Insurance’s head office.

David, Greg, James, Peter and the staff at Sentinel Risk Insurance Group are all looking forward to the new opportunities available to them. Working together, they continue to offer professional expertise and guidance to their clients in all areas of insurance – automobile, property, farm, recreational and commercial.  They are personifying Darling Insurance’s long standing motto of being ‘Proud of Our Past, and Positive About Our Future’, and applying it to a future that is all their own.
