Salute was formed in 1992 to recognize and honour the Insurance Person of the Year, someone who has made a significant contribution to furthering the image of the general insurance industry in this province. In 2007 we introduced the Rising Star Award, honouring a person from the next generation, whose professional contributions and dedication to excellence have already made them a leader and a role model in our industry.

The Insurance Person of the Year and Rising Star awards are presented at a gala evening which celebrates the dedication, commitment, and integrity of all the people in our industry. This year’s event will be held on October 18th, 2017 at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Vancouver.

The recipients for 2017 are:

Insurance Person of the Year – Lorne Perry, Port Moody Insurance
Rising Star – Chelsea Fitzpatrick, CAIB Park Insurance
