Vince Howie , B.Sc., CIP, Senior Claims Adjuster at Canadian Claims Services, Inc.
Vince started his adjusting career as an independent adjuster with UAB, which went through a few ownership changes.

They started a little shop as a franchise of Canadian Claims Services, and along the way recruited Dana’s son Graeme and long-time insurance guru and industry fashion icon, Ian Alexander. Canadian Claims Services is almost fourteen years old—and they’re all kinda proud of that.
