The 100 Club —Erion Insurance
With Scott Maskell, President
What should we know about Erion?
We started out as a full–service professional office for the community of Bridgeburg—the predecessor to the Town of Fort Erie. The office sold travel, tax planning and custom brokering services. When owner Gordon Glenny passed suddenly, his son Don Glenny and colleague Ernie Maskell took the helm to focus on the two product lines they knew well—travel and insurance. A separate travel office run by the Glenny family still exists, while the Maskell family continued the insurance brokerage and operates Erion Insurance to this day.
How has your business evolved over the years?
We’ve evolved from a single office in the Town of Fort Erie to three office locations at either end of the Niagara Peninsula. We rebranded from Glenny Insurance to Erion Insurance—a name that pays tribute to the community of Niagara, where it all began. And we’ve drilled down on digital tools and processes, being recognized by CSIO as a Technology Leader in 2018.
How are you celebrating your 100th?
We’re leading Brock University’s Talent Bridge, a four–month post–grad program that trains undergraduates on the skills necessary to succeed in sales in an insurance brokerage. We’re also involved in organizing the Ontario General Insurance Hockey Tournament in conjunction with the Niagara South Insurance Brokers Association—the largest industry hockey fundraiser of 2020. We’re anticipating $25,000 in proceeds to support Autism programs across the province.
What are your plans for the next 100 years?
We plan on expanding the Erion brand with additional offices in Niagara and Hamilton in the immediate future, with a 100–year goal of brokering business on Mars or the Moon, whatever comes first.
