A local insurance broker has been named one of the top 10 under 40 by Canadian Insurance Top Broker magazine.
Garrett Jones, who is the regional manager of commercial insurance at Valley First, was the lone B.C.-based broker to make the list.
“I was surprised and honoured to be named amongst this very talented group who are shaping the future of our industry,” Jones said in a press release. “When I reflect back on my career, I’ve learned the importance of working for an organization whose values align with my own. It’s these shared values that enable me to have a strong connection locally to help our communities and members thrive.”
Jones, who joined Valley First in 2017, was recognized for both his leadership and for his community involvement. He joined the Okanagan Young Professionals Collective and volunteers with the Okanagan Community Food Bank.
