MORE ABOUT CRAIG

Hard work, a focus on using one’s natural talents, and a good attitude will lead to an enjoyable and prosperous life. This philosophy has led Craig to a number of successes throughout the years, from earning a full US university scholarship for his hockey performance, then going on to win the NCAA Division 1 Championship with his team, to now serving in a leadership role on TRG’s Board of Directors. Needless to say, Craig knows all about reaching a goal and making a "shot" count.

With close to 30 years of industry experience, Craig helps his clients reach their own goals by securing maximum value from their employee benefits programs and enhancing their bottom line.

His game plans have proven so successful, in fact, that Craig has been nationally recognized for his work, and he and his team enjoy a well-earned reputation for both diligence and innovation.

Craig is a member of the Canadian Pension and Benefits Institute’s (CPBI’s) Pacific Regional Council, holds a Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) designation, and has completed the Certified Employee Benefit Specialist (CEBS) program. While he stays busy playing hockey, hitting the links, and driving his kids to endless activities, Craig also makes time to give back to his community by supporting a variety of local causes.

CRAIG'S TESTIMONIALS

Place content block here. Add accent and heading in editor.
  • The technical expertise, market knowledge and customer service attitude demonstrated by Craig and his team are second to none. I get a lot of cold calls from other advisors seeking our business and it’s been very easy to say “no thanks – we are being very well served."

    John D Heraghty, FCPA, FCA
    Vice President – Finance
    Victoria Harbour Ferry Co. Ltd.

  • I think the reality is most managers who purchase or are responsible for benefits really don’t understand them……or think they can affect the cost, or change the benefits best for them. You were able to teach me that not all is the same, and not all is cast in stone.

    Ian Hogg
    Former General Manager
    Allied Windows

  • My professional experience with Craig has been nothing short of first class. The initial approach to the final presentation of the business case was handled with professionalism and it is clear that Craig is an expert in his field.

    David McConnach
    General Manager
    BAILEY West Inc.

  • It’s obvious from the outset that he’s always focused on fulfilling the client’s needs, and he’ll do what it takes to get there. The second marked characteristic about Craig is his long term approach to servicing his clients, setting them on a path that will benefit them over time.

    Alain Quennec
    Financial Advisor & Director

  • I have worked with Craig for over 10 years. He provides exceptional service to our firm. I am constantly recommending him to my clients.

  • The technical expertise, market knowledge and customer service attitude demonstrated by Craig and his team are second to none.

    For more than 15 years, I have had the good fortune and pleasure to be a client of Craig Hewson and his team at TRG Benefits.  They have been my advisors on the benefit plans for the wide group of companies that I have worked with.  The technical expertise, market knowledge and customer service attitude demonstrated by Craig and his team are second to none.  I get a lot of cold calls from other advisors seeking our business and it’s been very easy to say “no thanks – we are being very well served."

  • I learned more about benefits management from you than I did in the previous 20 years of same.

  • Without reservation – I highly recommend Craig Hewson in the field of Health Benefits and Pensions.

    My professional experience with Craig has been nothing short of first class. The initial approach to the final presentation of the business case was handled with professionalism and it is clear that Craig is an expert in his field. But what really sets Craig apart is the level of service that he provides his clients once he has won the business. There was no issue that was too small to deal with and he represented our company’s concerns and interests with much success. Without reservation – I highly recommend Craig Hewson in the field of Health Benefits and Pensions.
