JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (June 12, 2017) — In a report published in May 2017, Reagan Consulting, an insurance agency management consulting and merger-and-acquisition advisory firm, reported that the first quarter 2017 organic growth rate of property/casualty insurance agencies and brokerages fell to 3.9 percent, the weakest growth rate since 2011.

Brightway Insurance agencies, on the other hand, experienced an average organic growth rate of 12.6 percent for the same period, outpacing peers by more than three-to-one. Entrepreneurs who wish to learn more about business opportunities with Brightway can register for a webinar scheduled for noon (EDT) on July 20, and hear from Co-Founder, Michael Miller, and Agency Owners, Billy Wagner and Kandie Landers. The webinar will provide an opportunity to ask the Co-Founder and Agency Owners questions.

“The reason Brightway agencies are growing faster than our peers is simple,” said Brightway Insurance Co-Founder and Vice Chairman Michael Miller. “Our model includes hundreds of insurance professionals at Home Office handling a suite of support, which empowers agencies to focus on building world-class sales teams.”

Brightway is the nation’s seventh largest privately held Personal Lines independent insurance agency selling through a franchised system of locally owned and operated insurance superstores.

“Our agents have access to more insurance carriers than other agencies,” said Miller. “This, along with their focus on customer needs, nets greater sales outcomes.”
