Our History

In August 2007, MacLeod Lorway Insurance made history and hung a shingle for the first time on East River Road in New Glasgow with our two original employees. All prior locations across the province were as a result of an acquisition. A month later, we acquired WDJ MacDonald and then in 2009, the office moved from East River Road to the Top of Provost in its current location on Jury Street. In May 2011, the Proudfoot, Fox & Phinney team joined our New Glasgow office and we now have five employees at this location.
