WR McCallum Insurance Limited was formed in 1957 by Wellesley McCallum and his wife Ann on Sanatorium Road in Hamilton, Ontario. The well known family business was purchased by their son James (Jim) in 1983. In 1992, the company moved to 86 Hester Street and operated from that location for 16 years. As our office continued to expand, our requirements for additional space became apparent. On August 31, 2008, we moved to our current location at 549 Stone Church Road East.
Misale Insurance Brokers Ltd was formed by Angelo Misale and traces it roots back to 1995 through the purchase of 50% of Delta Insurance Brokers. The firm moved in 1997 to Hester Street and shared office space with Gilmour Insurance Brokers.
In 2004, Angelo Misale purchased WR McCallum Insurance Limited and merged both companies which was re-named McCallum & Misale Insurance Brokers Ltd. Although he no longer is involved with the day to day operations, Jim McCallum continues to work as a consultant and to help service the clients who have been with the company for decades.
