Hello, I’m Kari Montes, Vice President of Business Systems at Axis Insurance. I hold a Bachelors of Music (Distinction) from the University of Victoria, a Masters in Music Theory from the University of British Columbia, and a Graduate Diploma in Business Administration from Simon Fraser University’s Segal Graduate School. I also hold a Canadian Accredited Insurance Broker (CAIB) Honours Designation.

I am experienced in all lines of General Insurance, and have worked during my 25+ year insurance career ‘front-line’ for all types of Personal Lines and Commercial Lines insurance. I also have 17 years of experience in senior insurance management roles, and am passionate using technology and process to solve business problems.

I am the former President of the BC Chapter of the Applied Client Network, the largest group of educators and advocates for users of Applied Systems Software such as Applied Epic. The BC Chapter won the coveted Chapter of the Year award under my leadership in 2017.

When not at the office, I enjoy keeping up with pop culture with my teenaged twin boys and train agility and nosework with my three dogs – Hurley, Stark, and Ahsoka.
