What is it like to partner with Brightway?

I had been reading Brightway’s marketing materials for years while working as a producer at a captive agency. I finally decided to look more closely at the Brightway opportunity when I realized that I’d gone as far as I could in that position. Now that I am operating my own agency in Tennessee, I can tell you that I regret wasting all of those years not offering more choice and expert consultation to my customers. I wished I had joined the Brightway family sooner. It was a big step, going from a producer to running my own business, but it’s the best decision I have ever made.

Morristown, TN

Brightway delivers the support that allowed me to move to a new community and start an insurance agency from scratch. Once open, I spent my time networking and relationship building with professional referral sources in the greater Charlotte business community, a luxury unavailable at my previous agency.

The partnership that exists between my agency and Brightway is one that makes us very confident and optimistic about our long-term success. Brightway is committed to a very open style of communication and is genuinely concerned about issues that are brought to them by Agency Owners.
