We make the insurance experience simple, controllable, and predictable.
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.

Purchasing and managing your insurance & risk management program need not be overly complicated or frustrating.
By hiring and developing great people who in turn accomplish remarkable things — we are building a great company to make the insurance experience simple, controllable, and predictable.
We’re committed to staying aligned with our original vision which has allowed us to remain an independent brokerage and achieve year over year organic growth.
