Our company was founded in 1955 by Mel McCabe, a hard working, caring man with a strong work ethic and strong family values. In 1957, Mel hired a young relative, Ken Hopper, who later became a partner.
When Mel passed away, at a young age, Russ Wiley joined Ken Hopper as a partner and, with the help of Evelyn Schumacher, they created a thriving insurance brokerage.
For the past 25 years, Ken Hopper’s son Dwayne Hopper, and his brother-in-law, Jeff Coben, have successfully managed McCabe Insurance Services Ltd. The family tradition has continued as Dwayne’s son-in-law, Delan Dahl, and Jeff’s son, Carter Coben, have also joined the business.
“There has been a real continuity in this company,” says Dwayne. “I worked with Dad for two years before he retired and I learned a lot from him — not just in those two years, but also throughout my whole life. That’s a legacy I value.”
McCabe Insurance Services Ltd. has always been located in downtown Saskatoon on 3rd Avenue. Though Saskatoon is a large and thriving city today, the small-town values of Mel McCabe and Ken Hopper remain. A caller will never get voice mail during business hours. One of our talented staff will answer the phone.
In keeping with the close personal relationships that have kept McCabe Insurance strong, Jeff and Dwayne share a friendship that dates back to high school. As partners, they share not only a business relationship, but also strong family ties. Both Dwayne and Jeff have two children and together the families enjoy summers at Emma Lake. Both Jeff and Dwayne coach ringette and hockey.
“Together, the family remains strong and the family-owned business, McCabe Insurance, goes from strength to strength, continuing to provide a service to our customers that I know my father would be proud of,” says Dwayne.
