Meet Our Team
Andrea Collis, CIP
President / Commercial Insurance Broker - Collis Insurance Services Group Inc.
Andrea has been affectionately referred to by some of her clients and friends as the “Insurance Goddess” – who only somewhat graciously leaves this here to make people smile… As a Chartered Insurance Professional, she has specialized as a SME business insurance broker for over 25 years.
She established her own brokerage in 2008 and has grown from there. Andrea loves that she and her team of experienced Insurance Brokers are servicing her clients daily, in ways that help her to build customer relationships and maintain the highest standard of customer care. Together with her staff, the office now boasts combined business insurance experience of over 70 years, which allows them to help clients with every phase of their business insurance needs.
Andrea’s new clients come almost exclusively from referrals. The overriding comment from all who deal with Andrea is that she truly cares about them and their businesses. She is prepared to go the extra mile because she knows from experience that an important factor in ensuring an ongoing business is the right insurance coverage. Collis Insurance Services Group helps clients with their Business Insurance needs throughout Alberta.
Andrea is a proud member of both Calgary Chapters of Women Presidents Organization (WPO), enjoying her time contributing to and receiving business and personal support from fellow business owners.
Andrea was nominated for the 2015 AWE Celebration of Achievement Award. The Celebration of Achievement Award pays tribute to exceptional entrepreneurs who have achieved recognizable success in Alberta. They are visionary women and inspirational leaders, who make a significant impact on the economy and community, and who act as role models for women in business.
