Chairman & CEO
Ralph started in the insurance industry in 1977 as an independent agent. As he gained experience in the industry, he came to recognize the trouble that many immigrants were facing when it came to insurance: the language and cultural barriers made it more difficult to understand insurance.
As a result of the issues he saw others facing, Ralph created a specialized insurance brokerage to help those in the Chinese community. Through his dedication and commitment to continuous learning to keep up to date with the needs of his clients and with industry standards, Ralph has gained the trust of both his clients and insurance companies. So much so, in fact, that he has grown the company exponentially since those early beginnings and now serves a variety of clients with diverse backgrounds in the GTA.
Ralph was also invited as a guest host on Fairchild Radio and A1 Chinese Radio for a segment on insurance, in recognition of his knowledge and expertise. Despite his successes, Ralph never forgot his initial motivation to make a positive contribution to the community. He is an active supporter of various community organizations and events.
