It's debatable whether Ryan was born on a boat or born in an insurance office. From the day he arrived, his father, Peter, operated a dive charter vessel, the Sea Venturer, while his mother worked as a commercial insurance broker for family owned Duggan West Insurance. Since he could crawl, he was either on the water or in the office. In August of 2000, Ryan was certified as an Open Water Scuba Diver through SDI (625123). After attending the University of British Columbia, Ryan followed into the family insurance business (in spite of his parents insistence he should be a writer and musician). While enjoying successful tenures with Northbridge Insurance, Zurich Insurance, Chutter Underwriting Services and South Western Group as Branch Manager, it became apparent First Dive and Owl Underwriting was a logical choice in his career path and he's proud to have the opportunity to show you what Owl can do. The ocean has always been family to Ryan who is often seen, between phone calls and emails, Declarations design or wordings discussions, gazing between the skyscrapers to the nearby harbour.
Samera McGourty’s lauded attention to detail was formed all the way back in Dublin, Ireland, where she honed her insurance chops working for RSA. As a platinum award nominee for the company in 2009, it was clear to all that she was destined for great things and after a tenured career at illustrious shops such as Willis and Axis Insurance Managers, the folks at Owl are happy to confirm the award nomination was no fluke. As advertised, Samera’s attention to detail is unparalleled, her sense of humor unmatched and her breadth of knowledge in the insurance industry an undisputable contribution to the company. In a short span of time, she’s become the backbone of Owl and an absolutely integral part of the team. Whether it’s manning the phones or grasping a business development role, Samera’s disposition outshines even her strongest recommendations. And when she’s not outshining company expectations, she can be found outshining coworkers in office karaoke, where her rendition of Robbie William’s “Rock DJ” is truly the stuff of legends.
After selling Axis Insurance Managers in November of 2016, John Antony Davis (Tony) took two weeks to travel and got right back to work with barely any time to reflect on his life and past successes. Having worked in the insurance industry since 1980, two weeks wouldn’t have been enough. Starting in Britain, Tony’s first gig was at General Accident Fire and Life Assurance Corporation, one of Britain’s largest insurance companies at the time. He gained experience in personal and commercial lines underwriting, claims handling and life assurance before becoming a field representative for the company in Birmingham England in 1984. After growing weary of the old country, Tony immigrated to Canada in 1987 and joined Dale and Company in the marketing department before moving to Jardine Rolfe Limited (now JLT) in 1992. While the experience was fruitful and Tony managed a portfolio for a multinational TSX listed company, he has always sought change rather than waiting to adapt to it. In July of 1999 Tony bought Winram Insurance Ltd which later became Axis Insurance Managers Inc. in 2005. Under his leadership, annual premiums rose from $1,000,000 to $40,000,000 including approximately $8,000,000 going into the market via binder. Now that Axis has sold, Tony still isn’t ready to rest on his laurels nor is he afraid of change. After two weeks off and little time for reflection, Tony can be found in the Owl offices, the sound of keystrokes and laughter filling the halls outside his office where the walls drip with nearly 40 years of insurance knowledge.
"The team at Owl P&C is one of the best in the business hands down"
