Peter Tessier

Host and Producer of The Insurance Podcast, VP of Sales and Marketing

Pete does not think he’s an insurance expert, he just plays one on his industry-leading podcast, creatively named The Insurance Podcast.  As a twenty year veteran of the insurance industry Pete has been a co-owner in an insurance brokerage, an IBAM President and a director on IBAC along with being the chair of the Insurance Council of Manitoba.  As a speaker Pete has moderated CEO panels at many insurance broker conferences as well as tech events including Trufla’s Amplify, IBANS and IBAO, My Mutual Insurance will be presenting at the Digital Marketing Summit for Financial Services.

After leaving the front lines of insurance Pete acted as consultant to the industry working with software and insurance companies on various projects until he created The Insurance Podcast.  Now entering its 5th year the Insurance Podcast has become an essential insurance media platform in both Canada and the US for those wishing to take a deeper dive into the world  of insurance.

When Pete is not booking guests and trying to make sense of the insurance marketplace he is tolerated by the team at BSI Insurance as their VP of Sales and Marketing.  Pete leads a dedicated sales team that specializes in complex agribusiness and commercial risks across 16 locations and 5 provinces.
