Business insurance Strategy Corporate

Rob has been a small business owner in Red Deer for many years. He started Clarke Insurance in 1988 and built it into a successful insurance brokerage. In 2016, he sold his business to Access Insurance. Though his main business was insurance, over the years he was the force behind 10 start-ups, as well as 6 acquisitions, and a couple of mergers, including for Hi-Alta Capital. Altogether, Rob has been involved in roughly 20 buy/sell/start-ups.

One of Rob's claims to fame is that he was an early adopter for "casual Friday". He had read about the trend happening in California, and integrated it into his business, well before it was the norm in Red Deer or even Canada. He is keenly focused on excelling in customer service, and in creating a positive workplace environment by treating employees well.

Rob is Past President of the Alberta Insurance Agents Association, and also served 3 years on the national board. He's been active in the Red Deer Chamber of Commerce.
