Generational Transition: Matthew Hill Appointed Chairman of the Board

In a significant and heartfelt moment during Western Surety Company’s (“WSC”) recent board meeting, Paul J. Hill, Chairman of the Board, announced his decision to relinquish the duties of this pivotal role. Mr. Hill was appointed to the WSC Board in 1980 and will remain Chair Emeritus. “Paul’s tenure as Chairman extended throughout my presidency and I can confidently state he has always provided an unwavering commitment to the employees of Western Surety, our strategic plans and most importantly, the continuation of the Hill Family ownership,” says Scott Donald, President and CEO of WSC.


Representing the fourth generation of the Hill Family, Matthew Hill has enjoyed 10 years of WSC directorship with the last several as Vice Chairman. Donald states “Matthew has been fully engaged with directors, myself, and senior management over the past decade. With a diversified background relative to numerous businesses, executive positions and directorships, Matthew is more than qualified to succeed his father in the Chairman role. He has, as well, provided further commitment to the Hill Family ownership noted above.”

As we embark on this exciting transition, we remember and celebrate the incredible journey of this “Canadian and family owned” business that commenced operations under Hill Family ownership in 1909. The spirit of WSC remains steeped in tradition, with a foundation built on our core values, which we will continue to exemplify in the decades to come under the vision and leadership of Matthew Hill.

Please join us in extending our congratulations to Matthew Hill as the incoming Chairman of the Board!
