Primerica Canada is moving its headquarters in Mississauga, ON, just in time for the upcoming 2018 Canadian Convention, which will be held July 27-28 in Toronto.

The Canadian Head Office will occupy more than 43,000 square feet of leased office space that has been completely designed to Primerica’s specifications.

“It is a state-of-the-art office where we can conduct business, continue to grow and add staff, and help more Canadian families become financially independent,” said CEO Glenn Williams.

The move and the convention are two significant milestones for 2018 in Primerica’s 32-year history of doing business in Canada, said Primerica Canada President Jeff Dumanski.

“The premise on Financial Drive will be a centre piece for our representatives to conduct business and meet clients, but will also offer interactive displays, recognition of our sales leaders and showcase our record breaking history in Canada,” said Dumanski.

The same week of the move, Primerica Canada will host its first ever Canada-wide Convention, where thousands of Primerica leaders will convene at the Toronto Congress Centre.

“We’re excited to bring together thousands of Canadians from across the country to a central event in Toronto,” said Williams. “This platform provides the perfect opportunity for previewing initiatives and recognizing the great successes of our Canadian sales force leadership.”

Dumanski added: “Coupling these two events will indeed bring Primerica to the forefront of the financial services industry as we imprint our brand on the next 30 years of ‘Making A Difference.’”

On June 21, Primerica and Invesco teamed up with Make-A-Wish Georgia to host a princess-themed celebration party for a special young girl. Ellie Harper, 11, of McDonough, GA, is bravely battling a metabolic disease, which affects her physical development and growth. Her wish was to go to Disney World with her family and through shared funding by the two companies, it came true earlier this year!

“We love to impact lives everyday in the financial world but there are more important things in life than just finances,” says Primerica CEO Glenn Williams. “Being able to make a dream come true for such a brave young lady is very special for us.”

“Ellie thought that all princesses came from Disney World so we went to Disney World,” says her dad, Jason Harper. “The entire experience is an immense benefit for these children who don’t enjoy life the way a normal child is able to, it really makes them feel special and it may be the highlight of their life.”

 

 

More than 27,000 children are diagnosed with a critical illness each year. Through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, one of these children is lucky enough to have their heartfelt wish come true every 34 minutes!

“Wishes are transformational not only for the child, but for the family as well. For them, so much of their time is honestly robbed – the time they spend with siblings, the time for family vacations, etc.,” says Tim Earley, CEO of Make-A-Wish Georgia. “A wish gives them some happiness, some respite and it gives them that normalcy that the majority of us take for granted sometimes.”

Ellie’s party featured plenty of decorations in her favorite color, pink, and her favorite foods. The event was a great reminder of the importance of giving back to the community and what happens when two companies team up to do so.

“Honestly, we can’t create the kind of magic that we create without the help of our community partners like Primerica and Invesco,” adds Earley. “It really takes a community to come together to make all of these things happen from start to finish.”

Primerica kicked off 2018 with its Senior Leadership Meeting, held January 3-4, 2018, at the Omni Hotel in downtown Atlanta, GA.

Top leaders from throughout the United States and Canada came together for the two-day meeting and enjoyed a packed itinerary that included powerful messages for the year ahead and reflections on a record-shattering 2017.

Wednesday afternoon, leaders were also treated to a private tour of the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium – the future site of Primerica’s 2019 International Convention.

Primerica stands proudly with veterans and active service men and women protecting families across the United States and Canada.

This year, The Primerica Foundation has donated $25,000 to the USO, a leading organization serving the U.S. military and their families. The donation will go to support the USO’s Pathfinder program, which provides resources to veterans and their families transitioning into civilian life after military service.

In September, more than a dozen Primerica volunteers, including CEO Glenn Williams, greeted military personnel at the USO Georgia site at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta. The volunteers served lunch, staffed the USO counter and distributed gift bags.

Williams said: “Primerica and The Primerica Foundation are so proud of our partnership with the USO and the incredible work that the USO does to support our men and women in the military both in Atlanta and all over the United States.”

Veterans who previously served in the U.S. and Canadian armed forces make up a significant percentage of the Primerica field force and the Home Office employs more than 80 Veterans in its locations in Duluth, GA, and Mississauga, ON.

Volunteering and working at Primerica often go hand in hand, and many of our Home Office employees are regular volunteers, both at work and at home in their communities. Sometimes, these employees go above and beyond the call of duty.

Diana Ballard, in Field Supervision, is one of these employees. Earlier this year, she donated one of her kidneys to her 66-year-old husband, Dakota.

Diana Ballard is pictured with her husband, Dakota.

It was an arduous two-year process that began when they discovered his history of high blood pressure was linked to kidney failure. All of his siblings were ruled out, so Diana got tested and found out she was a potential match. After extensive blood work and more tests, she was cleared to be a donor for her husband. The transplant took place May 5, 2017.

“I had so many people praying for me here at the Home Office (Duluth, GA),” says Diana. “This company was so supportive and understanding of my schedule and everything that I was going through as a caregiver. I never had to worry about taking time off to be with my husband or to get some rest.”

Fast forward to today, Dakota is doing “phenomenally well with no complications,” but “none of the credit goes to me,” Diana insists.

Diana, who just celebrated her 19th year at Primerica on August 13, is an avid volunteer often heading up annual holiday gift drives in her department, collecting donations during Thanksgiving and working with Habitat for Humanity.

Outside of the volunteer work she does with Primerica, Diana volunteers with an organization called Forever Fed through her church that provides food and clothing to the local area’s needy.

Diana credits Primerica as being the spark by which she got into volunteering.

“This company provides me with so many ways to be able to grow as a person,” she says. “I can volunteer while at work and the company promotes this. They provide each employee with an annual volunteer day, which is a day off to volunteer with an organization of their choice. We can also participate with Meals on Wheels during the workweek. These types of opportunities are a catalyst to being able to do good in our world outside of Primerica.”
