Milnco Insurance dates back to 1909, when McFadyen & Co. was founded by Charlie McFadyen. Upon his death in 1949, the Company was sold to Ed Hammarstrand and Les Greeniaus and the name changed to Hammarstrand and Greeniaus Ltd. (H&G). As the shareholders began to contemplate retirement, Dan Milne joined H&G. In 1973, Dan and some key employees acquired H&G and the Company’s name was once again changed to D. R. Milne & Company Ltd.; operating as Milnco Insurance.
In 2012 the Company was again sold and became a division of Oldfield, Kirby, Esau Inc. (OKE); operating as Milnco Insurance. With this change, some retail business written through Milnco was eliminated with the intent for Milnco Insurance to run solely as an MGA/Wholesaler going forward. In September 2014 the next phase for Milnco Insurance began with Roger Ranieri and Cliff Hryciuk joining Milnco as shareholders, and giving them management and operational control of the future direction of the Company.
In May 2016 Roger and Cliff purchased the remaining shares from OKE. As part of this change, Milnco Insurance is once again a separate entity as Milnco Insurance Inc. The renewed Milnco Insurance will reinforce its status as a 100% MGA and Wholesaler, dedicated to supporting and serving the P&C insurance broker channel in Canada.
