Progress Insurance —
Insurance broker Red Deer and Central Alberta

Make progress with a proactive approach to your insurance program.

What would your insurance program look like if you proactively addressed the factors that drive price and coverage?

It has been a difficult last few years as many businesses have seen up to 20% increases in their insurance rates.

Progress Insurance’s president, Marty Skinner, has 35 years of commercial insurance experience in Red Deer, Alberta (20 years as a partner at Ing & McKee), is a 30+ year member of the Rotary Club of Red Deer and has been a transportation insurance specialist since 2005. Most often, Marty finds the problem is your insurance broker hasn’t explained your insurance cost drivers or helped you improve them. The unfortunate result is you’ll never have the right insurance coverage at the right price.

Getting proactive about your insurance program starts with a short call with Progress Insurance. Next, it is important to complete an in-depth business analysis to take advantage of Progress’ second-to-none, front-line underwriting expertise. Once complete, Progress will present your business to insurance companies in the most favourable light which results in you receiving the best coverage available.

At your next insurance renewal you’ll feel confident because you understand the factors that result in an optimal risk management program.

The only way to make progress is with a proactive approach to your insurance program.

Progress Insurance and CMB Insurance Brokers

Progress Insurance is focused on bringing sound and creative insurance solutions to the Alberta trucking industry. This experience is also applied to assist all types of contractors, property owners, and heavy equipment contractors of any size.

As of January 2021, Progress Insurance became a division of CMB Insurance Brokers to make it easier for our clients to navigate the world of insurance. “Many new clients come to us feeling like they are always overpaying for their insurance,” said Marty Skinner, President of Progress Insurance. “After some investigation, we usually find they are tied to a poorly managed risk management program. We’re very excited to be joining CMB Insurance Brokers in creating better results for all our clients.”

Progress Insurance and CMB Insurance Brokers share the same roadmap to successfully managing your insurance program. First they gain a high level of understanding of you, your business, and your goals. Then they ensure you receive the right price, provider and protection, and finally they review and upgrade to your insurance program to ensure it responds optimally when you need it.

Ben McDonald, President and CEO of CMB Insurance Brokers says, “we’re coming together to ensure that when you make your next insurance payment, you’ll feel confident you have the right protection at the right price.” This partnership between Progress Insurance and CMB Insurance Brokers makes it easier for their clients to manage their insurance programs. Skinner adds, “the question we’re here to answer is, ‘What can be done about your out of control insurance costs?’”

We think differently about the Red Deer insurance experience

Everything we do is centered on making the experience of purchasing and managing your Risk Management program easy. We do this through great customer service and challenging the status quo.

Protect your business

Our brokers work is to protect our clients’ shareholder value and bottom-line performance. Providing the appropriate coverage and liability protects your company’s assets against risk from accidents during operations.

Control your costs

Achieving maximum protection at the lowest possible cost is the goal. At least 75% of your insurance premium is directly related to either your past loss history or losses the insurer expects you to incur.

Reduce the negative impact of a loss

Don’t let a claim get in the way of your business. We help you minimize the effect of a claim on your bottom line.

Solutions beyond the standard policy

Our solutions go deeper than the norm. We provide a wide variety of enhancements and share powerful resources to help you improve your bottom line performance.

An idea of what you can expect

Your business makes significant investments in assets that require regular maintenance not only to protect their value but also to avoid unplanned business interruption. Similarly, regular touchpoints and upgrades to your insurance program will ensure it responds at its best when you need it.
