McDougall Insurance Acquires Worden Insurance & Financial

Belleville, ON (Jan. 1, 2018) – Ross McDougall, CEO of McDougall Insurance and Financial, is pleased to announce that McDougall has merged with Worden Insurance & Financial Services, effective immediately, and welcomes the employees of Worden Insurance & Financial Services into the McDougall organization.

Worden Insurance & Financial Services is a successful broker operating out of Oshawa with 13 employees. They now join with McDougall Insurance and Financial to form an independent broker with 33 offices in Eastern Ontario, the Ottawa Valley and Central Ontario with 350 employees with over $275 million in property casualty premium and a strong and rapidly growing financial services division.

All Worden Insurance & Financial Services employees will remain with the organization with the exception of the owner Donna Crawford who has chosen to retire at this time. Their branch office
location will continue. All other members of the Worden Insurance & Financial Services management team will continue with the organization after this merger.

Worden Insurance & Financial Services is an excellent fit with the McDougall organization as we already operate a full branch in Oshawa which is split with both commercial and personal lines as well as financial services.

At some time in the future the offices will merge into one location under the leadership of current Oshawa manager and partner in McDougall Insurance, Christian Hutchison.

The merger will greatly enhance our critical mass in the city of Oshawa. As an independent broker we are committed to continuing our growth pattern and offering great service
and great products for our customers.
