Keenan was born and raised in Winnipeg. Like many in the insurance industry, his family roots were the reason he got into the business. His grandparents, Sid & Gladys Reimer founded Lakeview Insurance back in 1983. 40 years later, the Winnipeg office is still in the same location, loyally serving our clients and friends.
Keenan began his employment at Lakeview Insurance back in 2013 as an Auto Broker and spent most of his time filing and opening up mail. He quickly moved into Personal Lines and this is where he really found his skills best used, when dealing with customers in high pressure situations.
Keenan attend the Business Administration program at Red River College and specialized in Human Resources. After graduation in Spring 2016, Keenan spent a few years as a Membership & Accreditation Specialist at Building Professionals. He quickly realized the best part of his job was talking to the clients and making connections. He then moved on to CWB National Leasing where he was an Insurance Claims & Program Administrator for 2 years. His past broker experience was a huge asset in this role and he was fortunate to see how other sides of the insurance industry work.
Keenan returned to Lakeview Insurance in March 2020 as the Human Resources Manager for the corporation. Keenan helped develop many of the HR practices and procedures as the company grew larger. Keenan is still an active broker and contributes to the Personal Lines & Autopac teams. Keenan’s true passion is helping people, whether that be the clients, or his staff members. Corporate Culture is a huge mandate that Keenan firmly believes in, and he works hard so that the office is a positive and fun place to come everyday.
As Keenan enters his 10th year in the insurance industry, he looks forward to connecting more with his fellow brokers. As Lakeview Insurance continues to grow, Keenan is looking forward to becoming a bigger part of the community and strengthening the team, and the industry around him!
Outside of work, Keenan has a passion for music and enjoys playing in his band. A huge sports fan, most evenings are spent watching the Jets or college basketball. A novice vinyl collector, and self declared local craft beer snob, Keenan has no shortage of hobbies. Although with a 2 year old daughter, his evenings are becoming less about fantasy basketball and more about Little Tikes Hoops!
