I’m Mike Russell, serving as the Executive Vice President at Axis Insurance for 30 years. My time in the insurance industry spans over four decades, where I specialize in professional liability for architects, engineers, and environmental consultants. I possess a deep understand of the complexities and unique risk landscape facing A&E firms, which has allowed me to become a trusted source for risk management within the A&E community. As a Chartered Insurance Professional and an active member of both the Professional Liability Agents Network (PLAN) and the Insurance Brokers Association of B.C (IBABC), my insights are both broad and deeply nuanced, ensuring comprehensive risk solutions for our clients.

Since joining Axis Insurance in 1993, my focus has been on not just identifying but also educating members of the professions we serve. I have led numerous seminars on loss prevention and risk management, my efforts are aimed at enabling our clients to transform potential risks into opportunities for innovation and growth.

Outside the office, I actively support client engagement in events like the Ride to Conquer Cancer and Tour de Cure across Ontario, Alberta, and British Columbia. In my spare time I enjoy golfing, photography, and any time spent with my grandchildren.
