Archway Insurance, one of Atlantic Canada’s largest independent insurance brokerages, is pleased to announce a new partner and updates to the senior management team.
Founder and President Garry Stack is now Board Chair. His partner Michael Stack takes over the role of President and new shareholder, Gina McFetridge assumes the role of Vice-President. The changes are part of a planned transition moving day-to-day management of the family run brokerage from first to second generation.
“Michael and I have worked together for more than a decade and since Gina joined the three of us have worked together to create Archway and more than triple the size of the company,” says Archway Chair Garry Stack. “The company is in strong and capable hands.”
Archway Insurance began working on succession planning several years ago. The advice of many experts, including the Nova Scotia chapter of the The Canadian Association of Family Enterprise (CAFE), was sought in ensuring a smooth transition from generation-to-generation.
“We have a strong shared vision and I’m excited about the future of the company,” says President Michael Stack. “We have big plans to continue growing Archway Insurance, provide quality careers to our employees, and give back to the communities we serve.”
New shareholder Gina McFetridge, echoed these sentiments.
“Michael and I work very well together, and I’m thrilled to become his business partner,” says Archway Vice-President Gina McFetridge. “Our skill sets are complementary and with Garry continuing to share his experience with us in the role of Chair, I see great things in the future for Archway Insurance.”
