Western Financial Group has acquired Victoria, B.C.-based Hodges & Company Insurance Services Ltd.
This marks Western’s first acquisition in the B.C. capital.
Hodges & Company, owned and operated by Steve Hodges, has been in business in the Victoria area since 1965. The company will continue to operate from its office on Douglas Street under the Western Financial Group banner.
“As Victoria continues to grow, so do we,” said Hodges. “By joining Western’s expansive network with its wider variety of insurers, insurance products and financial services, we will build the best possible client relationships and provide our customers with great insurance at more competitive premiums.”
“We’re thrilled to welcome Steve, his team, and the beautiful city of Victoria to our growing Western network,” said Scott Tannas, President and CEO of Western Financial Group. “As we enter the BC capital for the first time, we look forward to offering Steve’s customers more services at competitive prices.”
“Victoria is such a famous west coast city, with a wonderful history. Its natural beauty is synonymous with British Columbia. After establishing Western in other parts of the province, it is truly exciting to see our name in the capital. With such rapid growth in this area, we promise to grow along with the city, and be the best insurance broker we can be for the people of Victoria.”
