JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (March 21, 2017) — As Brightway Insurance continues to expand across the country, more consumers are discovering that there is a better way to buy insurance—one that combines expert counsel with more choice in insurance companies than they can get anywhere else. As a result, Brightway, with headquarters in Jacksonville, continues to grow.
Brightway is a national property/casualty insurance retailer selling through a network of franchised independent agencies throughout the country.
In the next three weeks, the company plans to add 20 new professional insurance representative positions to its staff of more than 220 at 3733 University Blvd. West in Jacksonville. The company is seeking people who live its Core Values of Smart, Accountable and Trustworthy and who are interested in learning about insurance, moving up through the company’s ranks over time and building a prosperous career in the insurance industry.
The company will hire all 20 recruits in time for its next seven-week instructor-led training class that starts Monday, April 17.
“Brightway’s offering continues to appeal to both business owners who become Brightway Agency Owners and to consumers who buy through Brightway agencies,” said Brightway President Talman Howard. “In 2016, we sold a record number of franchises and grew our footprint to 130+ stores in 12 states. And, our agencies outpaced industry growth three-to-one.”
Howard said: “Industry veteran Kris Azar has built an incredible customer experience being delivered through our Service Center. Coming in to Brightway as a Service Center insurance professional is a great way to learn the business, serve our customers and begin your insurance career.”
Brightway employs more than 220 insurance professionals in Jacksonville delivering world-class customer service, carrier relationship, marketing, accounting and technology support, which frees up Brightway’s agents to grow their business through new business sales.
In addition to joining a growing company with a strong financial future, employees enjoy:
- A market-leading 401(k) match; Brightway matches 4 percent with no vesting period
- An employee bonus program
- Opportunity for upward mobility and a career with the company
- Programs that recognize and reward employees for being Smart, Accountable and Trustworthy, such as Employees of the Quarter, Employees of the Year, Cash Cannon and the Kudos program
- A company-sponsored event for employees and their families; this year’s event is a Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp game with a pre-game meal at the ball park
