Fast Insurance was started back in late 1967 by Harry and Marion Fast in the basement of their St.Vital home. As the business grew, they eventually moved to its current location on St. Mary’s Road in 1974.
In 1989, Allan (Harry and Marion’s son) and Janet (Allan’s wife) took over ownership of the business. Fast Insurance has always focused on servicing the needs of Manitoba families. Many of the company’s original clients, as well as their children and grandchildren, still obtain their insurance from Fast Insurance.
Allan and Janet decided in May 2020 that it was time to look at retirement and decided to sell the business to Josh King and Ryan Martens. Both Josh and Ryan have over 15 years of insurance experience and have a passion for providing their clients with the best service and policy available at the best price. Their goal is to continue the Fast legacy and continue to build off the success that Fast Insurance has had after all of these years.
