We're excited to announce the hiring of Mark Skanes as Eastern Regional Manager in the Western Surety Toronto office. Mark has been immersed in surety since the day he finished university 23 years ago.

The first job he had on graduating from Memorial University in 1989 was with a Toronto surety company. Since then he has stayed in the industry – and in Toronto – moving through a number of firms as he rose to a senior role as regional manager, before joining Western Surety.

That means a wealth of experience for Western Surety's brokers, and Mark expects his new job to keep him busy.

"There's a lot to do," he says. "My focus will be on growing Western Surety's portfolio in Ontario and expanding the strong brand here that the company has in Atlantic and Western Canada."

We have to admit, though, that Mark's life does involve more than surety.

In his off hours he plays hockey and golf, enjoys running and various outdoor activities, and is a busy father to nine-year-old Emily and seven-year-old Edward.

His first day at his new job will be June 11. Welcome, Mark!
