Scrivens has a diverse team of professionals: from industry influencers to musicians, from analysts to poets. The Employee Spotlight series aims to highlight the talented individuals who work here. Each month, we’ll be featuring an interview here on the blog and on our social accounts.
This month, meet our newest team member, Claude Miron. Claude recently joined our commercial insurance team in January 2021 as a Commercial Account Executive. He began his insurance career in 1992 with a leading international insurance company.
He then entered the brokerage ranks in construction, trades, and surety in 1998 where he added to his considerable technical knowledge. Claude holds the Canadian Accredited Insurance Broker (CAIB) designation and is fluently bilingual in English and French.
What is your favourite thing about your role?
As an account executive I meet a lot of amazing business owners and I really enjoy learning about each of their businesses.
What do you like most about working at Scrivens?
Well, I haven't been working here long but everyone has been very friendly. It's been an easy transition and I'm happy to be working with such an easygoing team.
What is one career lesson you have learned so far?
Listen to your customer!!
What is your favourite travel destination?
Actually, my favourite place to visit is my cottage. It's more like a home-away-from-home and I love to just get away from "daily life" and relax, but not have to travel too far.
Listen, you smell something?
Do you have a hidden talent?
I do. Do you know Mister Fantastic? I have knees like his: super flexible!
Do you have any pets?
Yes! I have a cat named Neo.
Where did you grow up?
What is your favourite hobby?
Playing guitar. One positive I have taken from the Covid pandemic is it has given me more time at home to practice.
Also, I'm a huge movie and trivia buff! I hear Scrivens often has trivia contests and I can't wait to challenge the rest of the Scrivens team!
