Surrounded by clients, business colleagues and many, many friends, KDM Assurances president Kosta D. Menoutis was the man of the hour on the evening of Jan. 14 when he held a reception to celebrate the opening of his insurance brokerage firm’s new location on de la Savane St. in Montreal.
After years of being at 6927 Parc Ave. in Montreal’s Mile End area, a need for additional room was partly the motivation for the move, according to Menoutis.
“We needed to expand. We needed more office space,” he said in an interview with Newsfirst Multimedia.
Along with a customer-friendly ambiance and ample parking at the new locale, KDM Assurances has also hired additional staff to better serve customer needs, added Menoutis. Clients will continue to receive the same trustworthy service they’ve depended on for more than three decades at KDM
Among the many guests at the event was Mario Tremblay (a.k.a MC Mario) of Virgin Radio. The Canadian Dance Hall of Famer handles Virgin Montreal’s Saturday evening 6 pm to midnight live DJ broadcast.

“He’s the best in the business,” MC Mario said of his buddy Kosta. Chatting just across the room was Suzanne Bougie, another friend. “Kosta is a very good guy – generous and with a good heart,” she said.
“I’ve known Kosta for nearly 15 years,” said Anne Magnan, an advertising account executive who plans Kosta’s billboard campaigns. “He’s a really great guy. He throws a great party. It’s really nice to be here.”
A client and friend
“I’m very proud of Kosta,” said longtime friend and client John Pericos. “I’ve known him for a long, long time. He’s a great friend. I wish him all the best at his new location. I think he’s done great for himself and all of us.”
In the 31 years since Kosta D. Menoutis transitioned from his original calling as a real estate agent to an insurance broker, thousands of clients have come to know and trust him as a personal advisor who can answer questions not only about insurance, but also on a range of other topics.
