GRAND BLANC, Mich. — Homeowners, renters and drivers in Grand Blanc, nearby Flint, Mich., and surrounding communities are about to experience a better way to shop for insurance. Veteran Insurance Agent and now Brightway Insurance Store Owner, Bob Brundle, will open Brightway, The Bob Brundle Agency in Grand Blanc, Monday, Dec. 4.
While still new to Michigan, Brightway Insurance is one of the largest property/casualty agencies in the United States. Brundle’s store will be the third Brightway Insurance store to open in the Wolverine State.
“I love helping people find the right coverage to give them peace of mind, but as a captive agent I have been limited to selling insurance from only one brand,” said Brundle. “With Brightway, the sky’s the limit because I have access to more insurance brands and Brightway’s back-end support, meaning I can offer more choice and a level of expert counsel that consumers won’t find anywhere else.”
Born and raised in Grand Blanc, Brundle graduated from Grand Blanc High School. He comes to Brightway from Allstate, where he was an award-winning Licensed Agent for the past 10 years. He and wife, Kathy, have been married nearly 25 years and have four grown children, seven grandchildren and one on the way. They also have two dogs. Brundle is actively involved in the Grand Blanc Chamber of Commerce and Business Network International, and he supports the local animal rescue and Grand Blanc Parks and Recreation. When he’s not working or volunteering, he loves to golf, garden and travel. Brundle is very invested in his local community and wants to continue building relationships and helping consumers as a Brightway Store Owner.
“Partnering with the right people is paramount to Brightway’s success, and we are thrilled to bring on Bob Brundle as our newest store owner near Flint, Mich., which is a new market for us,” said Brightway President, Talman Howard. “The back-end support we provide frees up Agents to focus on leveraging the broadest possible selection of insurance brands to meet each customer’s unique needs.”
Brightway Store Owners enjoy support in customer service, carrier relationships, marketing, accounting and technology. As a result, Brightway stores consistently outsell other insurance agencies three-to-one.*
Brightway, The Bob Brundle Agency is located at 9468 S Saginaw Road, Suite B in Grand Blanc (near the East Baldwin Road intersection). The store offers customized Home, Condo, Renters, Auto, Flood, RV, Motorcycle, Boat, ATV, Life and Umbrella insurance policies from numerous insurance brands including Bankers, Foremost and Progressive.
