Ryder Insurance is a locally owned independent insurance brokerage that specializes in many areas of Commercial, Personal, Life and Group Benefits insurance.
The Brokerage was originally founded by Leighton Ryder in 1979. In 2001, Shaun Rouse with 25 years of industry knowledge purchased the brokerage with the intention of continued growth. She remains a partner today and has helped to contribute in the success and expansion of Ryder Insurance.
In 2003, Wes Brower joined Shaun as a partner. He brought over 30 years of Brokerage ownership experience, and business experience in the Calgary and surrounding area.
In 2013, Ryder Insurance introduced two new partners to the firm; Bob McBurnie and Ted Oloriz both previously with BKI Risk Management.
Both Bob and Ted are graduates of the Mount Royal Business Insurance Program and have over 30 years combined experience in the insurance industry, ranging from commercial underwriting to commercial brokering.
In 2015, we have expanded to create Ryder Financial to provide financial planning for individuals, families and businesses.
Cam Sylven, a new partner in Ryder Financial, brings with him over 8 years of extensive knowledge in estate planning, advanced tax and corporate insurance strategies.
We are proud of our Mission Statement at Ryder Insurance and would like to take the opportunity to share this with all stake holders.
“Ryder Insurance is committed to the principles of service, integrity and professionalism,
while providing our valued clients the high quality of service locally and globally.”
