Reuter & Reilly Insurance Brokers

Continuing the family tradition of providing insurance options

April 2022 Edition

Business background

Reuter & Reilly Insurance has remained a family business proudly serving Welland and the Niagara Region for nearly 100 years. The brokerage was started in the 1920s by the Reilly family, and Dick Reilly, son of the original founder, was still involved with the business when it was purchased by current owner Jeff Reuter in 1995. Operating out of a converted home on Niagara Street, Jeff’s father oversaw a different insurance brokerage until the late 1980s, and his background and mentorship continue to be highly valued by Jeff and his team. Although the COVID pandemic dampened celebrations for the 25th anniversary, Reuter & Reilly Insurance are proud of this milestone and looking forward to a bright future of serving their clients, and our community.

“Welland is a great place to operate a business. City Council and the Mayor are always available and interacting in the community. This makes them approachable and open to discussing business issues whenever needed. This community is very family oriented and appreciative of our sponsorships and participation in local events. This just makes Welland a great and supportive community to do business in.”
~ Jeff Reuter, president
