Company History

It all started with a vision and an opportunity.


Our founder, Anthony (Tim) E. Mourad was born and raised in Grosse Pointe, Michigan. Tim’s sales career started in 1964 while in high school where he worked at Hickeys-Walton-Pierce, a men’s fine clothing store after school and on weekends. Tim quickly realized he had an ability to serve people and eagerly developed his sales and customer service abilities. In no time, Tim was one of the top selling associates. In the course of his career a local businessman (David T. Marantette) took notice of Tim’s sales and customer service skills and asked him if he ever considered a career in the insurance industry and subsequently offered him a job. Unknowingly to Tim, he was just offered a job by the President of the Detroit Insurance Agency (DIA), then the largest insurance agency in the state of Michigan.

After graduating from high school, Tim knew he had the personality and sales skills and accepted a position at the DIA, which was later purchased by Alexander & Alexander (A&A) and over his tenure worked his way to Vice President of new business development. It was then that Tim’s vision of starting his own agency was realized when he took the uncertain leap and created his own agency, bringing his sales skills and customer service philosophy to a new and exciting challenge.

The beginning.


A.E. Mourad Agency was incorporated in 1986 and started out in Southfield, Michigan with one employee and five clients. Through hard work, perseverance and a philosophy of offering his clients superior service and outstanding products for a competitive price, the agency experienced paramount growth.

A family enterprise.


Today the agency is now in its second generation of family ownership, with the addition of Tim’s two sons, Peter and Steve. Peter joined the agency after graduating from Western Michigan University and currently is Vice President of Sales. Tim’s youngest son, Steve, took a slightly different path and first started his career as an accountant with Plante & Moran and then moved to San Diego to receive his Masters Degree in Finance and Business Administration. Upon completion of his studies he moved back to Michigan and worked at Comerica Bank in their corporate lending division. When the agency needed a financial professional, Steve jumped at the opportunity and is currently the Vice President of Operations.

Growing up and branching out.


In 1998 after experiencing considerable growth in clientele and employees the agency purchased a building and relocated to
Madison Heights, Michigan. With the addition of our MyWave® product line and through steady organic growth and two acquisitions, the agency now employs more than 18 employee benefit professionals and services a customer base exceeding 250 corporate clients extending out to 42 states through out the United States and into Canada.

A company on the move.


The agency realized that to service our clients and to succeed as a predominate employee benefits agency we would need to hire and retain outstanding sales and service staff. Today we employ outstanding sales representatives and an unsurpassed service and administration team, all of which focus on exceeding the needs of our clients.
