Meet the Dougallers: Mark Runions

Did you know McDougall Insurance also offers Life & Financial services? Well we sat down with one of the experts here at McDougall Insurance, Mr. Mark Runions to find out a little more about the life and financial services side of insurance and what got him into the industry. Let’s dive in!

Place Of Birth?

Belleville, ON


I really enjoyed sports and the outdoors while I was growing up. I now have kids of my own and I love to coach or watch their sports teams. I also enjoy fishing or golfing when I have some free time.

Favourite Food?

I think I have to go with Pizza. There are just endless opportunities to try different toppings or styles. Classic pepperoni, maybe I go crazy with some ham and pineapple (we know, so controversial), maybe I use a totally different sauce with some pear, brie cheese and prosciutto. Ok now my mouth is watering…

Favourite Saying

“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take” –  Michael Scott – Wayne Gretzky

Favourite Movie?

The Shawshank Redemption – if it is on I can’t not watch it.

“Andy Dufresne – who crawled through a river of s*** and came out clean on the other side.” – Red

One Thing We Should Know About You?

I married up and have been blessed with 3 beautiful children.

How Did You Get Involved In Insurance? 

A good friend introduced me to the industry, couple that with a longing in recent years to become more involved in the local community, and McDougall Insurance is the perfect fit. McDougall loves to give back to the community and are a great organization with an incredible team.

What Do You Bring To The Table To Help Your Clients?

Honesty, integrity and an eagerness to stay informed with the most recent updates to the market and how it will impact my clients, their respective businesses and loved ones.

What Do You Think Is Important In A Relationship With A Client?

Trust. By staying informed to offer them the most suitable solution for their life situation & budget; you’ll build trust by ensuring they are covered when it matters most.

Favourite Sports Team?

My dad blessed (cursed) me with a love for the Toronto Maple Leafs. They will win the cup again one day, right? Right?

Favourite Celebrity/Athlete?

Clayton Kershaw. He seems like an incredibly humble and caring individual; but also comes with a fire and intensity to win and perform at an elite level.

Anything Else You Would Like To Add?

Without question, I am the absolute worst loser in the history of board games (or sports, or just about anything I can turn into a competition)!

Big thank you for Mark Runions sitting down with us! If you want to connect with Mark you can find his on LinkedIn or email him at [email protected]. Is somebody cutting onions? No it’s just Mark Runions. Always brings a tear to my eye looking at such a beautiful family.
