Brightway Insurance Adds Eight New Agency Owners since February

May 18, 2016 // // JACKSONVILLE, FLA. - Brightway Insurance, a national property/casualty insurance retailer selling through a network of franchised independent agencies throughout the country, has added eight new Agency Owners since February.

  • Charlie Bourgeois, Charlotte, N.C.
  • Kate Gowen, Lansdale, Pa.
  • Alex De Jorge, Kissimmee, Fla.
  • Peter Linke, Dallas
  • Tayler Harding, Orlando, Fla.
  • Rich Saltzman, Tampa, Fla.
  • Rob Richardson, Limerick, Pa.
  • Jay Kaiser, Miramar, Fla.

The Brightway system provides a comprehensive system of support to its Agency Owners, enabling them to focus on selling new policies while other needs including systems, telephony, marketing, accounting and all service after the sale of a policy are handled by the 200+ employees at Home Office in Jacksonville, Fla.

And, the Brightway model also features access to at least twice as many insurance companies as other independent agents have. As a result, Brightway agents offer unparalleled levels of expert advice and choice, enabling them to consistently outsell their insurance agent counterparts. 

Co-founder and Chairman David Miller said: “From the start, we reimagined what an independent insurance agency system could be - how it could work, what it could offer. In the last three years, we’ve made significant investments ensuring everything we do - from accounting to business analytics, to customer service to marketing and communications - is world class. We’ve never offered better value to our Agency Owners and to our customers. And, we continue to make investments to fulfill on our commitment to providing our agents with best-in-class comprehensive support. Our agents, in turn, parlay that into market-leading performance.”
