In 2002, Christopher Johnson began his insurance career as an agent at Promutuel. Fifteen years later, he found himself on the other side of the fence at the head of the Regroupement des cabinets de courtage d’assurance du Québec (RCCAQ).
It is a friend broker who gave him the bite of the brokerage. In 2007, he decided to start his own brokerage firm AMR Assurances Multi-risques, at the age of 25 years. AMR now has 15 brokers. The cabinet is a lot of emphasis on its digital strategy, including social networks such as Facebook. The one who was the founder of the section of the eastern Townships of theAssociation for the next generation of assurance du Québec (LARAQ), has also won the Award of Distinction is within the RCCAQ in 2008.
Since then, his involvement in the brokerage has continued and increased, until it culminates to the position of chairman of the board of directors of the RCCAQ. It is in 2014 that he began his involvement to the RCCAQ. He believed that it was time for him to give back to the brokerage.
«I am proud to be a dealer. We are fortunate to do this work, » says the one who has also been president of the Jeune Chambre de commerce de Sherbrooke from 2007 to 2009.
