Michael Caron, CIP CRMDirector of Producer Group
Michael fell into our favorite industry when he picked up an insurance law textbook and had a flip through out of boredom. The information in the book compelled him to look further into the insurance industry and start taking courses before making the career altering leap.
Michael’s first insurance instructor became his first mentor and things accelerated quickly from there. Entering the industry, he worked as an agent selling and servicing personal lines insurance. From that role, Michael progressed to management and then into a role that had him training and licensing new employees.
Looking to expand his knowledge and round his experience, Michael moved to a role at Intact in their Commercial Specialty Department where he found solutions to non-standard risks as an Underwriter.
Later, an opportunity became available to manage a book of business for a large insurer and Michael transitioned to RSA Insurance as a Regional Sales Manager. Working to manage broker relationships throughout British Columbia, Michael expanded his network of insurance professionals and, more importantly, allowed him to meet and get to know Central Agencies. With firsthand knowledge of Central Agencies’ rapid growth, awesome producers, and vast market access, synergy was immediate.
Michael was excited to join the Central team in 2020 in a role where he could leverage his industry interest, passion for people, and desire to win!
For several years, Michael has taught various insurance courses through the insurance institute and is a familiar face at industry events throughout Greater Vancouver.
Michael loves to travel, especially by train, and is frequently found roaming Europe in the company of his wife and an insurance textbook.
