MAGRATH, Alberta, Oct. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Fresh off being recognized as the 30th-ranked startup on the 2016 Startup 50 Canada list, Surex Direct Co-founder Lance Miller will be a speaker at the 96th annual IBAO Convention in Toronto, Ontario on Wednesday, October 19th.
The convention, put on by the Insurance Brokers Association of Ontario, recognizes and celebrates success in 2016, with an eye to the future. Speakers joining Miller include Insurance Bureau of Canada President & CEO Don Forgeron, Good Morning America's Dr. Karyn Gordon, and New York Times Bestselling Author Justin Kingsley.
"I am honoured to have this chance to speak and share stories and insights that have helped make Surex Direct successful," Miller, who also doubles as the company's CEO, said. "The insurance industry in Canada is changing and we have found a market that works for us."
Surex Direct is Canada's fastest growing online brokerage. Their customer proposition allows customers to receive up to 10 auto, home or business quotes in five minutes. Their transparent pricing model allows customers to compare their offers and choose the policy best suited to their needs. From there, customers can sign their documents through e-signature and have instant proof of insurance.
Since its inception in 2012, Surex Direct has grown to boast a book of business of over 20,000 policies, accounting for over $30 million in insurance premiums annually.
"I truly believe in the broker channel. Brokers offer the best customer proposition. We offer multiple quotes and find the product that fits the customers' needs best. I would love to see more brokers adapt," Miller said. "Yes, times are changing. Change presents opportunity. Now is a great time for brokers to show their strength."
In the past two years, Surex Direct has seen their revenue grow by 300%. Currently offering insurance in five provinces and two territories, Surex Direct will enter Canada's largest market, Ontario, in the coming months.
Miller will speak at 2:10pm of Wednesday afternoon's speaker block. The convention runs through Friday, October 21st. The convention is at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel and registration will be on-site only.
