Wheat City Claims Services Ltd. recently began in business in Brandon, Manitoba in June of 2016.  The president/owner Craig Shanks has over 33 years’ experience in the claims profession.  Craig started his career with several insurance companies before moving to the independent adjusting field in 1988.  After working with several smaller boutique firms in Winnipeg, he moved to Brandon where he managed local offices for two national independent adjusting firms for over 20 years.  After spending the past five years with a local firm out of Winnipeg, the opportunity arose to set up on his own and spawned Wheat City Claims Services.

A graduate of the University of Winnipeg with a Bachelor of Arts degree, Craig attained his CIP designation in 2002 and has been a proud long-time member of the Canadian Independent Adjusters Association (CIAA).  He is presently the President of the Manitoba Region of CIAA.
