HUB International – Why Work For Us?


HUB International was formed with the merger of 11 privately held Canadian insurance brokerages in 1998. Today, we are ranked among the largest insurance brokers worldwide.

The entrepreneurial spirit that formed HUB is evident today in the way we do business. Our company is organized around large regional “hubs” with over 450 satellite offices. Our structure enables us to be proactive in addressing local market needs while centrally managing the growth of our business with consistent standards.

While global, our strength lies in our commitment to the communities we live and do business in. We are here to help you evaluate your risks and develop solutions that are tailored to your needs.

    Pros

    Strong sense of ownership and accountability in your role; Supportive leadership; Team performance bonuses (we are all in this together); Over 450 agencies locally run but organically united - this makes HUB International incredibly flexible and gives this insurance broker unique bargaining power with insurance carriers and third party services on behalf of the employer groups it serves.

    Cons

    Rapid and constant growth has its challenges, but they are absolutely worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to fold in the new acquisitions into one unified organism that hums, much like folding unique ingredients into one superior dish, or adding musical notes to create a symphony.
