Canal Culture

What makes Canal special? Our 75+ years of success in the industry can only be attributed to one thing: our dedicated and talented staff.

 

“The reason I have been with Canal for 40 years is because of the people and my job. I love the people I work with and I love what I do…it’s as simple as that! My position is very fulfilling, rewarding and every day is an opportunity for me to go the extra mile to help someone.”

-Pam Davies, Receptionist and President of First Impressions 

“In May of 2013 I graduated from a small liberal arts college with majors in both History and Asian Studies and a minor in Environmental Studies. While each was of interest to me, I had no idea how these seemingly unrelated topics would benefit me in finding a job in a troubled economy. In June 2013, I was accepted into the Canal REACH Program, an intensive six-month training program for recent graduates. Canal helped me translate my passions for research and critical thinking into a career as an underwriter. The abundance of learning opportunities and resources provided to employees constantly reminds me that Canal truly does care about me and my future.”

-Chandler Barton, Associate Fleet Underwriter

“I joined Canal in August 2007 and have held 4 different positions here. Each position has been a little more challenging than the one before, giving me the opportunity to develop and grow. Canal has allowed me to truly discover my talents and has provided me with the tools that I need to be successful. Being able to work at a company where there is no “glass ceiling” culture and where I feel I am in control of my successes says volumes to me about a company’s ability to develop and retain talent.”

-Salathia Henry, Underwriting Operations Specialist

I was fortunate enough to receive a Canal Scope Award for Customer Focus in 2013, and that was truly a remarkable and humbling experience for me. I see Canal as a place that values its employees, enables them to better themselves and recognizes their qualities. I’m proud and delighted to be a part of Canal Insurance Company.”

-Brandon Tripp, Level 2 Helpdesk Technician

“I have been at Canal since September 2012 working as the Corporate Paralegal for the General Counsel. One of the things I enjoy most about my job is that no two days are the same. I love having the opportunity to work with people in every facet of our business and collaborating to solve problems and make our company stronger. I look forward to many “new” days to come at Canal!

-Sarah Brogan, Paralegal
