BC insurance professional joins the list of the industry’s top brokers

Hub International’s Mani Sharma has been included in Insurance Business Canada magazine’s annual Elite Brokers report

Online PR News – 29-July-2020 – Toronto, ON – Hub International’s Mani Sharma has been included in Insurance Business Canada magazine’s annual Elite Brokers report, spotlighting the 25 Canadian brokers who have overcome multiple obstacles to achieve remarkable success over the past year.

Sharma began his insurance career in 2002 as an advisor at Sussex Insurance Agency. “I was attracted by the global reach of the insurance industry,” he says. “Even from a young age, I’d always been captivated by key issues facing the world, such as cyber technology, natural disasters, climate and political risk. Insurance underpins the security of not just individuals, but also large enterprise.”

Over nearly two decades in insurance, Sharma has focused on business development, overseeing the placement of commercial insurance programs and delivering risk management solutions to small, medium, and large organizations. His specialties range from aviation and automotive dealerships to trade credit and hospitality. Last year, Sharma qualified for Hub’s SHARP Award, which recognizes the top sales performers in the company, and he continues to strive to be an expert in his field and a trusted advisor to his clients.

“Despite tough economic conditions that restricted many – if not all – markets in 2019, brokers all over the country rose to the challenge,” says the Insurance Business team. “Of the dozens of brokers who excelled over the last 12 months, none shone quite as brightly as the 25 professionals featured on this list. This year’s Elite Brokers range from innovative newcomers to insurance veterans with decades of experience, but all earned their spot by posting impressive numbers in new business commissions or total premium volume – or both – in the last 12 months. While 16% of this year’s Elite Brokers have 20 or more years of industry experience, nearly as many (12%) have been in the business for five years or less – proving that when it comes to succeeding in a tricky economy, tenacity and innovation carry as much weight as a decades-long resume.”
