Archway Insurance Barnes was founded in 1989 with an empty filing cabinet and a vision for success held by Garry Stack and well known local insurance broker Bob Barnes. The two men saw the need for a new brokerage in town to provide choice of product and excellent customer service to the citizens of Cumberland County and the Sackville, NB area. In 1992, already an established brokerage, Barnes grew with the acquisition of David R Cormier Insurance in Amherst. A year later, Rogers Insurance in Oxford, NS became part of Barnes Insurance.
