Justin Kozakevich was introduced to the insurance industry at an early age. His parents, Larry and Marilyn Kozakevich, have owned Mark’s Agency (now Trustmark Insurance Brokers) in Melville since the early 80’s.
After graduating high school, Justin’s first job in the industry was selling accident and sickness insurance. He left the industry briefly to explore other avenues, but ended up coming back to work at his parent’s brokerage along with Mainline Insurance in 2010. It was during this time that he earned his CAIB designation and propelled his career forward.
Working in multiple offices across the southeast corner of Saskatchewan, Justin gained a lot of invaluable knowledge and insurance experience within his role at Mainline. During his time in Emerald Park, he assisted with training and business development throughout each office and helped insert universal workflows, which brought unity and efficiency to the business.
In 2016, with the sale of Mainline Insurance, Justin and his family moved back to Melville to take over the family brokerage. Justin and his wife, Jenna, have 3 busy kids: Jameson (2, who you’ll find likely climbing on the table), Mya (4, likely egging Jameson on, with a mischievous smile) and Anna (9, excitedly telling someone a joke or an unusual animal fact.). Justin is excited for this next chapter with Prairie Insurance and is looking forward to building many more relationships along the way.
“There’s a lot I like about the insurance industry. Every day brings a new challenge and you are always learning. Most of all I love the people; working in this industry has its ups and downs, but when you have the opportunity to help someone and make a real impact, whether its finding coverage for a difficult risk or helping them through a claim, it’s great feeling when you know you’ve made a difference.”Justin Kozakevich
