Profile - Shannon MacMurchy

I have worked in the insurance industry since I was 16 years old. (12 years old if you count going in during school holidays with my aunt!). I’ve had the opportunity to work in a few different areas of insurance in my career. I started out as a receptionist at an agency and from there I passed my licensing exam and worked as a personal lines broker for a short time. I worked at PAL Insurance as an Underwriter for 5 years, an Account Manager at TIC Travel Insurance for 3 years and as an Underwriter at Intact Insurance for 7 years. I am currently a Senior Commercial Auto Underwriter for our Southern Alberta Region.

I currently hold my CAIB, CIP, and CRM designations and am working towards my BMgmt Degree. I also hold a level 2 general insurance license in Alberta.

I joined the Insurance Professionals of Calgary in 2006, looking for a place to be involved in the industry. I don’t remember how I heard about the IPC, but I went to a dinner meeting and I was hooked! During the June 2015 CAIW convention, I became the Director for the Insurance Professionals of Calgary. I chose to become Director as I had been in numerous roles within the IPC and I was very interested to see how it worked on the National side of our association.

I was elected onto the CAIW board as Treasurer at the 2017 AGM and I couldn't be more thrilled!

One of the best parts of being a member of the IPC and CAIW is the friendships that are made, Canada wide. I would never have a chance to meet most of these people if it weren’t for my involvement with this organization. Everyone gets along so well and even though most of us only see each other once a year, it’s like we’ve never left each other! I’m also lucky enough to be able to travel for these conventions and have been to places I wouldn’t normally be visiting.
