Our Story

Our company started out over 50 years ago as a small insurance broker. At the time, it was largely just us and the foreign owned brokers.

To succeed we had to be better. So, we punched above our weight and earned the trust of some of the largest companies and associations. We created many firsts for industries and clients in the insurance industry.

To this day, this culture is still engrained in every broker at Gow-Gates - we earn trust, and we never lose it. It's why we're different: our people know that the client pays us, not shareholders. The client is always number one.
