Mutual Fund Investment Specialist**
Stratford

Before joining Co-operators in 2003, Peter worked for GE for eight years, most recently with GE Commercial Equipment Finance. He was responsible for providing multi-million dollar financing solutions to companies in the automotive manufacturing sector. Prior to this, he worked for GE Fleet Services, which provides leasing and fleet management solutions to medium and large companies. Several times he won the Top Achievers award, which recognizes the top two sales producers in the organization.

Peter started his career in the retail automotive business, spending 11 years within the Ford franchise dealer system. For seven years, he worked with Highbury Ford in London in various positions, such as Fleet Manager, Business Manager and New Car Sales Manager. He was Ford's Peak Performer each year during his four years as Fleet Manager. This recognition is given to the top 5% of sales producers in Canada.

Peter's mission statement is "Earning your trust by ensuring your financial security." Clients have many choices when it comes to insurance products. Most consumers have never read their insurance policies and very few truly understand them completely. Peter takes great personal satisfaction in understanding his clients' needs and tailoring an insurance solution that works best for them. He goes one step further, communicating in terms that everyone can understand. Peter's clients truly appreciate this level of service.

Peter has been a Stratford resident for over 30 years. He is married and has four children. He has been very involved in both Stratford area and global community initiatives, volunteering through the Rotary Club, his church, Memorial Baptist Church, and many local charitable organizations. In recognition of his dedication to personal and business excellence, Peter was awarded the Co-operators Community Achievement Award for 2012 for the Central Ontario Region. In 2008, he was awarded the highest honour bestowed by the Stratford and District Chamber of Commerce at its Annual Business Excellence Awards event: the Personal Excellence Award.

Whether you want to protect your life, your home, your investments, your car, your farm or your business, look no further than Peter Maranger.
