Al Dorman Insurance Brokers Ltd. was founded in 1974 by Al Dorman after branching away from Smith, Dorman and Williams. He relocated his home office from Queensville to an office in the old Mill beside the Mount Albert Post Office. The office boasted lots of charm and character and was easily accessible for his clients.
Aside from looking after the insurance needs of the community, Al was known for his big personality and dapper attire. Everyone enjoyed his pastel coloured blazers, fashionable hats and big smile! He was well respected and community spirit was extremely important to him.
