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?
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.
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…
