Blain King

Blain King

Financial Advisor
Halifax
Blain began his journey with The Co-operators in 1997 after completing his BBA from the University of New Brunswick. After working for seven years as an Associate Insurance/Financial Advisor, he was ready to become an agency owner in the lovely town of Cornwall, PEI.

That adventure lasted for six years, before the position for Associate District Manager became available in Halifax, NS. Seeing the possibility of further growth for himself and his family, Blain became a part of the management team for The Co-operators and gained lots of valuable experience that brought him to where he is today.

Realizing how passionate he was about providing financial security to his clients, Blain stepped into the position of agency owner once more. He finds fulfillment working closely with his team of specialized agency staff and finding ways to support his community in times of need.

Because of his strong belief in community involvement, Blain volunteers with Feed Nova Scotia, is a member of the finance committee at Halifax Christian Academy, and is a board member and strong supporter of Souls Harbour Rescue Mission.

On a Sunday, you will find him in attendance at Faith City Church, with a group of people who believe in bettering the community, just as he does.

Our agency is a 14-time member of the Atlantic Region Builders club, which is a distinctive club whose members are known for meeting and exceeding service excellence. We are also a member of the Executive Builder's club four times over, which is recognized for a large volume of new business while maintaining high standards of persistency and profitability. Finally, the agency is proud to have been nominated for the Community Achievement award for Atlantic Canada.

Courtney Warnell

Courtney Warnell

Associate Insurance Advisor
Halifax
Courtney joined our team in October 2019 and has a Ministerial Diploma from Master’s College and Seminary. For 14 years she's done great work volunteering with middle and high-school students. Now, her mission is to provide the best insurance for clients. She strongly believes that her relationship with her clients is the cornerstone, making them feel protected and taken care of. A curious fact about Courtney is that she has an “unhealthy” relationship with coffee and carbs. She loves to cook and have lazy Saturdays with her husband.

She is now working towards being licensed for Home and Auto insurance and will move onto Life insurance training from there.
