Saskatchewan Business Hall of Fame

Western Surety Company is proud to share that our parent company, The Hill Companies, was recently inducted into the Saskatchewan Business Hall of Fame.

While Western Surety commenced operations in 1909 under the name of Saskatchewan Guarantee & Fidelity Company, the overall family business was established in 1903 by Mr. Walter Hill. Through the colourful 120 year history, there have been numerous business ventures and currently, our sister companies all calling Saskatchewan home include Harvard Developments, Harvard Western Insurance, Harvard Media among others.

Scott Donald, current Western Surety CEO and President states “It is with great honour that our company was recognized as an integral part of The Hill Companies’ at the 2023 Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce ABEX Awards. “From Mr. Walter Hill to Mr. Fred W. Hill to our current Chairman, Mr. Paul J. Hill (6th from L – back row) we have enjoyed consistent leadership and family ownership’ notes Donald. ‘In the not too distant future, we will see the fourth generation assume the Chair and I am fully aware that Mr. Matthew Hill (1st L – front row) looks forward to many more years and decades of the “Hill Family” chairmanship.”

Western is proud to uphold the tradition of being a family-owned organization, and we look forward to maintaining this legacy well into the future. Western would like to thank its brokers, principals, and business partners for our continued success, and the newest milestone in our companies’ storied legacy in Saskatchewan.

Greg Salmon, Assistant Vice President (3rd from L – back row) represented our company at the September 16 festivities in Saskatoon.
