Established in 1972, Wylie-Crump has never followed the standard expectations of a traditional insurance brokerage. Starting with the early establishment of our company name, there never was a Ms. Wylie or a Mr. Crump, rather the founder of the company was seeking a name that stood out from the crowd.
In 2009 a new leadership of Wylie-Crump came forth, and our firm has become even more unique with its specialization and dedicated focus to the construction, design and real estate industries.
In 2018, we entered into the next chapter of our company story as Wylie-Crump became a Navacord Broker Partner. Navacord is a Canadian-owned brokerage that was created to provide innovative risk management and insurance services to businesses from coast to coast. Their value proposition benefits Canada’s independent insurance brokerage community.
Through 2020 and 2021 the company has grown exponentially, and we are currently 26 employees and a gross premium volume of $56 million. We are maintaining strong plans for continued growth and expansion, and to continue to be industry leaders in our specialized focus.
Wylie Crump’s mandate is to stand beside our partners to help build their companies and build our communities.
To create the leading risk advisory firm for our clients and our people.
To build the strongest relationships and create solutions for our 3 key partners: our people, our clients and our markets.
