JACKSONVILLE, FLA. — The Jacksonville Business Journal published its annual list of LGBTQ-Owned Companies, and Brightway Insurance tops the list at No. 1 for the second year in a row. Since brothers and Co-Owners, David and Michael Miller, started the business in 2008, Brightway has grown into one of the largest Personal Lines agencies in the U.S.
“I’m really proud of my brother, Michael, who has been a tremendous leader for our company and our brand,” said Brightway Executive Chairman, David Miller. “He transitioned to become the top executive leading the company over the past several years, and thanks to his leadership and vision, our company has continued to thrive even through the pandemic and the recession.”
“While his success as a business leader has been remarkable, what impresses my wife, Monique, and I most about Michael is that he and his husband, Glenn, are true to themselves and others and they advocate for what they believe is right. Michael brings forward his authentic self every day, and he has worked to ensure that our employees feel like they can do the same,” he added.
In addition to growing a successful business, Michael Miller advocates on behalf of the LGBTQ community by supporting: the LGBTQ Community Fund for Northeast Florida, the University of North Florida’s LGBT Resource Center, the Human Rights Campaign and Equality Florida. He currently serves on the JASMYN Community Trustee Council.
The Miller brothers are very involved in helping the community thrive and have spent years advocating for the United Way of Northeast Florida among other organizations and initiatives.
