Dave’s mining portfolio consists of clients working in various aspects of the industry. These include drilling contractors, geological consultants, and mining and mineral exploration firms at various stages of development.

Stacey Copeland

Stacey is an account executive with years of experience focused in the resource based industry in Western Canada.

Stacey’s expertise in the insurance industry began at AON with a focus in the primary resource sectors in British Columbia. Stacey joined Finning International in 1997 and was quickly promoted to a management position with a mandate to build a highly competitive insurance facility for Finning customers. Throughout her tenure there, Stacey expanded what was a mono-line program to include a full range of coverage options in order to meet Western based contractors’ full commercial insurance needs. A combination of high service excellence, successful claims management, and expanded insurance offering meant a fivefold increase in net profitability.

Stacey joined Axis Insurance in 2005 as a senior shareholder and partner, bringing a team of highly qualified insurance professionals. She immediately helped the company grow through a series of strategic acquisitions and partnerships and was instrumental in the sale of the company in 2016 to the Vertical Group, now renamed the Axis Group.

Although specializing in mining, mineral exploration, forestry and energy risks,  Stacey has expanded her focus to include construction, transportation, cryptocurrencies, blockchain and other emerging markets and technology risks.

The common thread has been and continues to be a focus on clients that are best in class. She embraces their technical challenges, meets their high service expectations and considers it the ultimate success to place the broadest coverage, at competitive pricing with A+ rated insurers.
