Brightway Insurance Opens First Ohio Office

A leading national independent insurance retailer recently opened its first store in Ohio and plans multiple franchise stores across the state.

Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) January 28, 2013 - A leading national independent insurance retailer recently opened its first store in Ohio and plans multiple franchise stores across the state.

Brightway Insurance, with more than 115 stores nationwide, welcomed new agency owner Chris D. Callen as he opened his Brightway Insurance location at 925 North State Street, Suite I in Westerville, Ohio. Information about this unique insurance agency concept can be found at http://www.brightwayohio.com. Callen is a Mansfield, Ohio native who has owned a national life & health insurance agency for more than 31 years.

“The plan is to establish Brightway offices throughout the Central Ohio area as well as adding significant property and casualty insurance options for our Central Ohio residents,” said Callen. “Brightway also provides an outlet to provide income for The Callen Foundation, which benefits active military families in need.”

A percentage of all profits from Callen’s Brightway Insurance operations will be donated to The Callen Foundation. Anyone that purchased a policy from Callen’s Brightway store will be helping Central Ohio military families in need.

The Callen Foundation, http://www.thecallenfoundation.com, provides limited financial assistance to the families of individuals currently serving in the military and families with a recently deceased military parent in a combat zone, as well as those recently honorably discharged due to service-related injuries. The Foundation was the 2012 of the Ohio National Guard’s Annual Covenant Award for helping National Guard members with financial needs.

Callen is a Vietnam veteran, having served with both the 101st Airborne Infantry and 4th Infantry units. He is the State Commander of the Combat Infantrymen’s Association, Ohio Headquarters Company and also serves as the post bugler at funerals and veterans’ memorial events at his local VFW post.

Brightway has announced plans to expand into 17 states and will open 50 new stores in 2013.
