Stewart Morrison Insurance: 60 Years of community, integrity and advocacy

By Lindsay Advocate

This year Stewart Morrison Insurance celebrates 60 years, a landmark of service!

To kick off the celebration, we introduce a new and exciting logo that reflects our past, the leadership of today and our vision for the future.

Founded by Stewart Morrison, a farmer at heart, Stewart Morrison Insurance has grown to become a diverse, inclusive company, led by a strong woman who is celebrating 45 years in the industry.

Marlene leads by example, with care, integrity, and a seemingly unlimited amount of time for everyone. She is proud of the team of professionals that work with her everyday and even more so of her family. Her husband and partner of 40 years, Ken Nicholls is the navigator of all that is technology and has put this company at the forefront in their capabilities to serve clients digitally.

To keep it in the family, Emily Avery-Graves joined 12 years ago with a management background in claims adjusting as Business Development Manager and three years ago, son-in-law John McMahon as an Account Executive. Marlene and Ken’s daughters: Dr. Rachael Nicholls serves as Diversity Advisor and Dr. Jacquelyn Nicholls of Adelaide Clinic as Health & Wellness Advisor. Catherine Nicholls, a CA CPA at Oxford, often participates in the business progress with a solid historical background and larger corporate vision. The logo development was a family affair with all 3 daughters participating in the focus group.

“Our team is the foundation for our success; the people who have made this company a generational story of service and care. I am so grateful for the excellence our staff brings to the insurance industry,” Marlene says proudly.” They work tirelessly every day to take the worry out of purchasing insurance by balancing your premiums with your needs at the best cost. The most gratifying thing I hear is when we’ve made a difference for someone in their time of need.”

“Through the long and proud history of Stewart Morrison Insurance Brokers, they have consistently demonstrated an unwavering commitment of trusted advocacy for their clients. Their commitment to their clients is matched only with their passion and active involvement in building a resilient and safe community. We are proud to call Marlene and her team at Stewart Morrison Insurance Brokers partners.” Enrico Mastrangeli, VP, Distribution and Member Innovation, The Commonwell Mutual Insurance.

“Stewart Morrison is simply great. They are always available and reply promptly. SMI is a local, family team and it shows – they go above and beyond both to serve their customers and in giving to our community. I can say from experience that Marlene is an incredible advocate for her clients’ needs whatever the situation.” Mike Perry, Lead of Government Law and Constitution with the Metis Nation of Ontario
