JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Feb. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire - Brightway Insurance, Inc., the nation's seventh largest privately held Personal Lines insurance agency, has named Eric Rand, owner of Brightway, Boca North, as its Agency Owner of the Year. This marks the second year in a row Rand has earned this distinction.

The award recognizes the top-producing Agency Owner among the 117 offices in 11 states; production is measured in commissions earned. It was presented to Rand during the company's annual Awards Celebration held Friday, January 22, 2016 at the Hilton Bonnet Creek Orlando.

Brightway Founder and Chairman David Miller said: "When we started Brightway, we dreamed we'd have an agent of Eric's caliber and that dream has come true. As you can imagine, we ask Eric for his secrets to success nearly continuously. His message is consistent and simple: Work hard and you'll own the market. It must be true."

"The Brightway system is designed to let people like Eric and his team focus on selling while we service customers, provide marketing support, telephony, accounting and other elements of turnkey support," said Brightway President Talman Howard. "Eric leverages the system fully and his team's production is a testament to the strength of the system. Congratulations!"

About Brightway

Brightway independent agents provide expert counsel and more choice; agents have access to more than twice as many insurance companies as other independent agents and they 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.

Brightway began franchising operations in 2008, is privately owned and operates 117 franchise locations in 11 states. In 2015, the company was named the nation's No. 1 Franchise to Buy by Forbes and to the Inc. 500 as one of the fastest-growing privately held companies in the country eight years in a row.
