Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) October 24, 2013 - Brightway Insurance, a leading national independent insurance retailer, is being recognized for its growth and contribution to the American people and economy with its continued hiring.
Brightway, which franchises more than 100 retail insurance stores, was named one of the top 100 job-producing companies at the 2nd annual Inc. Hire Power Awards.
"We are honored to be recognized for our growth and the number of jobs we are producing," said Talman Howard, president of Brightway Insurance. "It is rewarding to know that not only have we grown, but we have also made life easier for our fellow Americans."
Brightway is experiencing a 300-percent cumulative three-year growth, and has created more than 1,000 jobs since 2010. Brightway recently opened its first store in Lexington, Ky., and its first North Carolina store is scheduled to open in early November. The company is currently licensed in 17 states.
The Hire Power Awards are not only indicative of the winning companies’ growth, but of the opportunities the companies provide for American workers who need jobs. The 100 companies chosen are from every industry in the United States, so there is tremendous competition.
