Who are the brightest young talents in Canadian P&C today? Each year, Canadian Insurance Top Broker magazine answers that question with its Top 10 Under 40. (Top Broker was acquired in September 2018 by Canadian Underwriter.)

The Class of 2018 reveal a few tricks of the trade, for sure. But they also show anyone considering a career as a broker that no matter your background, you can succeed as a broker through hard work and a focus on the customer.

Thank you to all those who nominated a broker, and especially to the judging panel: Stephen Corea of Gore Mutual;  Shari Dodsworth, Northbridge Insurance; Sandra Henkel, Trisura Guarantee; and Tom Reikman, Economical Insurance.

However, the competition isn’t over! Help us pick the winners of the Peer-to-Peer Awards by selecting your three favourites among the 2018 Top 10 Under 40. We’ll announce them at the Top Broker Summit on November 26.

    Anton Antonov – bright, caring, knowledgeable, efficient, pays attention to detail, puts the customer first, a team player, a caring family man – what more could you ask when considering candidates for the Peer-to-Peer award. Anton would be the perfect role model for aspiring brokers of the future.
