New Brightway Insurance Office to Open in Winter Springs

July 21, 2015 // // JACKSONVILLE, FLA. – Long-time Central Florida businessman Derrick Vance is putting his more than 15 years’ property/casualty insurance experience to work as the newest owner of a Brightway Insurance agency at 1196 Tree Swallow Drive, Suite 1322 in the Winter Springs Town Center. The agency will open on Monday, July 27, the company announced.

Brightway Insurance is a national property/casualty insurance retailer selling through a network of franchised independent agencies throughout the country, serving the insurance needs of over 250,000 policy holders.

Brightway agencies, including The Vance Agency, represent more than twice as many insurance companies as other independent insurance agencies, providing the broadest possible choice to consumers.

Most recently, Vance held the Regional Director of Administration role with Liberty Mutual Insurance. Prior to that, he was in claims management with Mississippi Farm Bureau Insurance.

Vance is well-known in the Dr. Phillips High School community, serving as a mentor and preparing students for job interviews.

“I like to help people and I love helping them understand insurance and how it can provide them with peace of mind,” Vance said. “Opening my Brightway agency will let me fulfill my passions as I help people find the policies they need to protect their valuables and their lifestyles.”

“The choice in insurance companies that Brightway provides is unparalleled in the industry, and it’s why I chose Brightway,” said Vance. “Most people don’t understand how many very good insurance companies there are to choose from. My job is to listen to understand their needs, and then match them up with policies that protect them from the unexpected.”
