Fast Insurance started back in 1967 by the Fast Family (Harry) in the basement of their St. Vital home in Winnipeg. The business grew and moved into its existing location at 1115 St. Mary’s Rd in 1974. Over the years Harry’s son Allan and his wife Janet took over running Fast Insurance.

In the spring of 2020, Ryan Martens and his business partner Josh King purchased Fast Insurance. The goal was simple, take the existing Fast legacy and continue to build off the success that Fast Insurance has had after all of these years.

Ryan and Josh have over 30 years of combined insurance experience and have a passion for providing their clients with the best service and policy available.

Since taking over the business in 2020, Ryan has been able to add several new insurance markets to Fast, giving our clients even more options when it comes to insuring their car, home, seasonal or business.

In the summer of 2022, Fast Insurance partnered with Shelley Mehling in Steinbach to open a local office in Steinbach, MB. The goal is to provide Southeastern Manitoba with a locally owned presence and a superior client experience.

I began my insurance career in 2005 as an Autopac broker. Through the years, I also focused on the marketing side of the business. My passion is providing outstanding customer service and developing new and more efficient ways to serve clients. When not at the office I enjoy golf, fishing and relaxing with my family.

I have been in the insurance industry for 8 years and sell home, travel, vehicle and boat insurance. I love meeting and helping newcomers to Canada, not only issuing policies but helping you understand the claims process. Having been with Fast Insurance for 6 years, I like being able to see familiar faces from year to year.

Leah (Mansoore) Mehrabi

Insurance Advisor

I joined the insurance industry in October 2022 just one year after entering Canada as a newcomer and it was a wonderful turning point in my career path. Being an Insurance Advisor is not only fulfilling in terms of being helpful to others, but also is a chance of getting to know and connecting with the diverse and welcoming society of Winnipeg.
