About Us

Pitcher & Doyle was founded in 1980 by two friends, William Pitcher and Donald Doyle. Over these last 40 years, Pitcher & Doyle has developed a great deal of relationships, underwriting experience and technical knowledge. We are poised with the backing of Navacord, to be the pre-eminent market leader and provider of insurance programs and services to the Canadian dealership industry.

The Canadian Dealership industry is a sector that is evolving at a rapid pace and involves many complexities that can be challenging to stay on top of.  The most common trend in the past decade is the amalgamation or acquisition of local dealerships into larger National Dealer Groups.  Pitcher & Doyle fully understands the complexities that this evolution will create.  As a result, we recognize the need to provide a customer focused “hands on” approach to dealer risk management and loss control which has been particularly effective in guiding and educating our clients through the years.

Unlike our competitors in the industry, we stay partnered and engaged with our customers working alongside their broker and the Insurer to provide an exceptional customer service experience from seed to sale and beyond. Many of our clients exceed 10 and even 15 years of loyalty.

Core Values
