Brightway, The Ourso Agency Opening in College Park in Orlando

October 27, 2015 // // JACKSONVILLE, FLA. - College Park resident Chad Ourso will put his 15 years of insurance experience to use as the newest Agency Owner of a Brightway Insurance store located at 4100 Edgewater Drive in Orlando opening Monday, Nov. 2, the company announced.

To celebrate the opening, Ourso will host members from the Orlando Regional Chamber of Commerce for a ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, Nov. 3 from noon to 2 p.m.; the event, featuring hors d’oeuvres and refreshments, is open to the public.

Brightway is a national property/casualty insurance retailer selling through a network of franchised independent agencies throughout the country. Ourso’s agency brings the number of Brightway locations to 116 in nine states.

“I am really excited to help my neighbors in College Park enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing their homes, valuables and lifestyles are fully protected,” Chad Ourso, Agency Owner, said. The Ourso Agency will offer local, expert insurance counsel and will sell a wide variety of Home, Flood, Auto, Umbrella, Boat, Motorcycle, RV and Life insurance policies from more than 60 companies.

Ourso joins Brightway as a first-time business owner, drawn to the company by its success and unique business model that provides turnkey support, helping Agency Owners focus on new policy sales.

“I watched my grandfather become very successful in the insurance industry beginning at a young age, and I realized that this too could be my path,” Ourso said. “Becoming a Brightway Agency Owner lets me find this success while helping my neighbors and friends.”

Prior to buying his agency, Ourso served as a Regional Marketing Director for Penn Mutual and Regional Vice President for Genworth Financial.

Ourso is a member of the board of directors for the Downtown YMCA of Orlando and also serves as a Chairman on the organization’s Finance Committee.

Brightway independent agents have access to more insurance companies than other 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.
