Brightway, The Parks Dawson Agency Opening in Melbourne

June 15, 2015 // // JACKSONVILLE, FLA. - Long-time Brevard County residents Terri Parks and Craig Dawson will put their problem solving and customer service skills into action as new Brightway Agency Owners when they open the newest franchise in the Brightway system at 7025 N. Wickham Road, Suite 106 in Melbourne on June 22, the company announced.

Brightway is a national property/casualty insurance retailer selling through a network of franchised independent agencies throughout the country.

The Parks Dawson agency will offer expert insurance counsel, selling Home, Flood, Auto, Umbrella, Boat, Motorcycle, RV and Life insurance coverages. While Brightway is an independent agency, a key differentiator is that the company provides their agencies access to more than twice as many insurance companies as other independent agencies have.

Parks joins Brightway as an Agency Owner and will leverage her experience as a small business owner with a background in managing financial assets for customers. Dawson has more than 30 years’ experience in problem solving on behalf of his clients at Harris Corporation.

“We are both very excited to put our prior business experiences to work for our new Brightway customers,” said Parks. “We look forward to helping people find the coverages they need at the prices they want.”

Brightway independent agents have access to more insurance companies than independent agents and focus strictly on selling and growing their books of business, while service, carrier relationships and technology are handled centrally. As a result, Brightway agents consistently sell more new personal lines business than do traditional independent agents.
