Long-time insurance provider gets ‘facelift’ with new Langley office

Hub International opens doors to new office in Langley City

‘Revamped’ and ‘refreshed’ were the buzz words as Hub International Insurance Brokers held a grand re-opening and open house of their new Langley City office on Friday (July 5) morning.

“We wanted a little bit of a facelift, an opportunity to update and modernize,” said Jennifer Perry, Hub International’s vice-president of talent management.

“New is exciting,” added the company’s president and chief executive officer, Tina Osen.

Both were on hand to celebrate the Langley branch opening the doors at its new location.

The new location is 104 20151 Fraser Hwy., in the Valley Centre strip mall.

It moved two doors down from its previous location.

The one-stop shopping destination — which covers a variety of insurance needs — has long been an insurance option in Langley, starting as Lakeview Insurance before being purchased and changed to Hub International.

The new Langley location — its third over the years — has a staff of 18, with June Causon serving as the branch manager.

Hub International was formed in 1998 with the merger of 11 privately held Canadian insurance brokerages.

It now has 5,000 employees in 300 offices throughout North and South America and they generate more than $5 billion in written annual premiums with 500 insurers.

It is organized around large regional hubs with hundreds of satellite offices. The structure allows Hub International to be proactive in addressing local market needs while centrally managing the growth of the business with consistent standards.

Their B.C. head office is located in Burnaby, with 67 offices province-wide. The Langley location is one of a dozen in the Lower Mainland.

“We are committed to this community and proud to be a part of it,” Osen said.

“As the community grows, we are going to grow with it.”

“It is wonderful to have a branch office in our community,” said Deputy Mayor Gayle Martin, who was on hand for the re-opening.
