Halifax, NS (Feb. 14, 2019) – Archway Insurance, one of Atlantic Canada’s largest and fastest growing insurance brokerages, is pleased to announce the addition of George Mitchell Insurance in Liverpool, Nova Scotia, to its locations, effective February 28, 2019.
“We welcome the employees and clients of George Mitchell Insurance to Archway Insurance,” says Archway Insurance President Gina McFetridge.
“Similar to Archway, this brokerage has its roots as a family business with strong local community values. We look forward to continuing these traditions while enhancing the services and products available to our new clients.”
The deal increases Mitchell’s commercial capabilities, along with adding life, travel, and employee benefits products to its client offerings. Access to all of Archway’s insurance companies also provides more options for personal insurance clients.
“I have known the Stack Family for many years they are a truly great Atlantic Canadian family business,” says Don Abbey, of George Mitchell Insurance.
“When it came to selling our brokerage, our choice was Archway Insurance because of their principles and values. We wanted to make sure our employees would enjoy their work environment, and we appreciate the terrific support we know they will receive from Archway.”
Archway and George Mitchell are committed to business as usual. The current employees will remain in the existing Liverpool location providing a smooth transition for clients.
The latest acquisition brings the number of Archway locations to 24 with approximately 57,000 clients and $115 Million in premium volume.
Archway Insurance is an Atlantic-owned, independent insurance brokerage, and one of the largest in the region. Headquartered in Amherst, NS, it is a growing, progressive company with more than 160 employees at 24 conveniently located offices.
At Archway, we are committed to providing our clients with professional advice and excellent personal service.

About George Mitchell Insurance
George Mitchell Insurance was founded by George Mitchell in 1988 operating out of the Mitchell home. His wife, Margaret, gave up the family living and dining room to the benefit of the business. In the following decades, the business grew picking up personal and business clients throughout Queens County and along the south shore.
In September 2016, the business was purchased by South West Nova Insurance Group. To this day, the business continues to grow and thrive with the benefit of long term broker employees that are dedicated to providing expert insurance advice to their clients.
