Army Veteran Accepts New Assignment: Brightway Insurance Franchise

Brandon, FL (PRWEB) March 12, 2014 - Lorenzo Acevedo is the new agency owner for the Brandon, Fla., Brightway Insurance store located at 773 W. Brandon Blvd.

The fast-growing national independent insurance retailer is a big change from Acevedo's previous line of work. The Brooklyn, N.Y., native served 11 years in the U.S. Army, including time in Afghanistan. Prior to taking over the Brandon store, Acevedo worked at the Department of Veteran Affairs.

"Brightway Insurance is a veteran-friendly company and we're pleased to have veterans like Lorenzo join our team," said President Talman Howard. "Veterans are leaders who take necessary risks to be successful, and their service to our country should be applauded."

Acevedo's insurance store is a member of the Brandon Chamber of Commerce as well as the Riverview Chamber of Commerce.

"Brightway's unique business model allows me to serve my community in a new way," said Acevedo, who holds a master's in business administration from Saint Leo University.

As a national insurance retail store, Brightway Insurance's unique systems and technology provides agents with the back office support needed to run an agency – such as contract renewals and various other paperwork – which allows agents the largest amount of freedom and earning potential.
