History of Jack Lambertus Insurance

In the Begining:

Val Schurter moved from Preston, Ontario to Chepstow in 1926. In June 1927, he became one of the original appointed brokers for Pilot Insurance.

Jack Lambertus purchased Schurter’s Insurance Agency in 1967.

The Growing Years:

Working in his fathers’ drug store, he was ready for a change. Having absolutely no experience in the insurance industry he decided go for it and never looked back. In July of 1970, Jack purchased a second business, Leo Oberles Insurance Agency, merging the new business with his now successful Jack Lambertus Insurance Brokerage. With growing success the business was incorporated in May 1971 with one additional employee, Mervyn Hedley, assisting with client services and taking meticulous care of the bookkeeping system.

Jack’s son Peter Lambertus joined his father in September 1981 at the young age of 17. Jack’s second son, Steven, joined the brokerage in 1993 followed shortly by their sister, Ann Hoover. Jack passed away on Thanksgiving day in October 1998. The business then was purchased by wife Mary and siblings Peter, Steven and Ann. Steven sold his shares to Ann in the spring of 2001, moving to London, Ontario. Peter and Ann bought Mary’s shares and work today as partners in the brokerage. Peter’s wife, Heather, joined the staff in September 2001 working as a Customer Service Representative. Pat Lane joined the staff in 2007.

In February 2008, Jack Lambertus Insurance Brokers Ltd. purchased the competition and long time friend across the street, W R Binkly Insurance, merging the two businesses into Lambertus Insurance Brokers Ltd. and welcoming long time Binkley employee, Pat Simpson.
