Rhodes & Williams Ltd. was established in 1935, and has
since grown to be one of the largest independently owned insurance
brokerages in Eastern Ontario. We've been in the insurance business
for over 70 years, providing outstanding personal and commercial insurance
solutions. Some of our clients have been with us for over half a
century, and that's because they know that our
insurance brokers and our whole team care about keeping their
family, their business, and their way of life protected.
An Insurance Brokerage with a Rich, 75 Year History
Initially called E.N. Rhodes & Sons Insurance and Real
Estate, the company was run by Edgar Nelson Rhodes Sr. and his
sons, David and Edgar Nelson Jr. The company was eventually split
into two, and both Rhodes Real Estate and Rhodes & Williams
still operate to this day.
David Rhodes still sits on the Rhodes & Williams board of
directors, and he's in and around the office most mornings during
the summer. Until recently, Wendell Williams, another of the
original founders, would often stop by, check up on how his clients
were doing, and share stories with the younger staff about some of
his first insurance accounts.
About 20 years ago, David retired from full-time insurance work
and brought in Trent Young, who, along with other long-time
employees, took over the ownership of the company. Since then,
Rhodes has grown immensely, adding five new insurance brokerages
and becoming licensed in every Canadian province. Our insurance
brokerage continues to provide both long term and new clients with
the perfect fit of insurance solutions, service and care.
