e’re wrapping up our Community Leadership Award Spotlight with the last two Ontario Brokers recognized for their contributions to community last year.
Trent Young President, Rhodes & Williams Insurance Brokers
Trent leads by example. His presence and impact within Rhodes & Williams is felt by everyone he meets and is highly respected within the community.
Trent’s built a strong relationship with Cystic Fibrosis Canada’s Ottawa Chapter and the whole CF community that spans back to the 1980s. In 2016, Trent was awarded the Hal Rogers Fellow Award—the highest award conferred by the Kin Canada Foundation. His involvement with CF helps raise awareness and funds for this fatal genetic disease that affects Canadian children and adults.
“It always amazes me how many brokers are involved in charity work. It’s a real compliment to the industry that we can attract people who give back. It’s a real honour to be recognized with this group of brokers.
“Cystic Fibrosis has been very important to our family for many years. In 1988 a friend of ours lost their daughter to CF at the age of 13. The destruction this disease brings to lungs and the lung function is horrible and can lead to death. Great progress has been made resulting in many people with this disease living close to a normal lifespan—we hope a cure will eventually eliminate this disease.”
Trevor McIntosh
Vice President, Operations, Zensurance
Trevor’s a passionate insurance professional who believes that as the world changes, the insurance industry needs to change with it. Over the span of his career, he’s championed community involvement and charitable initiatives and led the creation of a three-year scholarship with the Humber College Insurance Management Program. The program is a direct response to combating systemic racism by providing an opportunity to students of colour who are considering a career in the insurance industry.
“Being recognized as a community leader by my peers is beyond humbling. To me, insurance is all about community. One way I’ve been able to actively participate in this community is by volunteering. I’ve met so many amazing and talented folks out there by volunteering with the IBAO, IBTR, YiPT and various other organizations. Volunteering allows you to meet new and interesting people and provides an incredibly rich learning experience. It allows you to have influence and help shape this great industry we all work in.”
