We think differently about the insurance experience

CMB was founded in 1986 by Ed Cannon, Mark McDonald & Wally Bychkowski, on the premise that they do insurance better.

What better meant to them and still means to CMB today is: we can build a great company by hiring & developing great people, who in turn accomplish remarkable things; for clients, carrier partners, and their team.

CMB is headquartered in Edmonton, Alberta and has five satellite offices: Calgary (serving Southern Alberta), Grande Prairie (serving Northern Alberta), and Red Deer (serving Central Alberta) as well as Los Angeles and San Diego, California.
