Woodstock has been home, all of my life. I was raised here, work here and play here. I’ve been lucky enough to raise my family here – and I’m proud to say that I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.
My experience with the Insurance Industry has been life long, and came from my father, who was first an independent insurance adjuster, then a broker and then finally the owner of Jamieson-Hilts Insurance. With a strong focus on helping the general public and customer service, Jamieson-Hilts seemed like the perfect place to focus my professional career. Little did I know then that 20+ years later, I would be the owner and President of Jamieson-Hilts Insurance. I’ve always been drawn to customer/community service, so I guess you’d say I’m a true people person and that this was a perfect fit.
Having lived and worked here for most of my life, I’ve gotten to know so many of the people we serve on a daily basis. There’s a good chance that if we haven’t already met – we’ll know more than a few of the same people. That’s the most rewarding part of my job. Getting to meet and work with so many of the people that make up this amazing community. I think it’s always better to be able to deal with someone you know and who knows you. Someone who is more than just a phone call away – someone you’ll see at the grocery store, gas station or school play. That’s the focus of Jamieson-Hilts – and it’s a philosophy we try to live by – community first.
When I’m not working, I’m with my amazing wife and 3 kids. We’re a busy family – and we’re involved in minor hockey, minor soccer, and golf. Some people think my second home is the golf course – but over the past few years, you’re more likely to find me at a soccer field or arena. I love movies, music, sports, TV and reading – along with great food and friends.
In December of 2016, we sold Jamieson-Hilts Insurance and are thrilled to have left it in the hands of St. Clair Insurance who share our vision of “customer and community first”. Knowing that the name, the staff and the philosophy will remain the same, means all of our clients will continue to be in great hands for many years to come. I’m also proud to be staying on with Jamieson-Hilts Insurance to help move us into the future. Some things just change while others change for the better, and I have no doubt that Jamieson-Hilts Insurance is now better than it’s ever been, but always mindful of not losing touch with those people, places and ideals we value most.
To our clients and community, thank you for your support! My promise to you is to always do my very best to work hard for you all!
