Archway Insurance- Barnes is in Amherst, next to the Nova Scotia and New Brunswick border, and the head office of our growing insurance brokerage. We proudly chose this community for our head office, which represents the heart of our operations that stretch from east to west and north to south throughout the provinces of NS & NB.
Our CEO Michael Stack grew up in Amherst and is involved on the Cumberland Hospital Board as well as minor hockey. Under the leadership of Manager Ed Pettigrew, Archway Insurance – Barnes maintains a strong presence in the town’s downtown business community. Our employees passions become our passion and we like to get involved. Whether it’s sponsoring the Archway Insurance Run For the Sun, supporting high school sports or community fundraising, Archway is there.
Archway Insurance – Barnes was founded in 1989 with an empty filing cabinet and a vision for success held by Garry Stack and well-known local insurance broker Bob Barnes. The two men saw the need for a new brokerage in town to provide choice of product and excellent customer service to the citizens of Cumberland County and the Sackville, NB area. In 1992, already an established brokerage, Barnes grew with the acquisition of David R Cormier Insurance in Amherst. A year later, Rogers Insurance in Oxford, NS became part of Barnes Insurance.
Archway Insurance – Barnes delivers personal, commercial, life, and group insurance to individuals and local businesses. Our insurance brokers examine products from major Canadian providers and tailor available coverage options according to the needs and budget of our clients. The result is comprehensive personal and commercial property, health, life savings, and recreation insurance at the lowest rates in Atlantic Canada.
