ST. JOHNS, Fla. — Veteran Insurance Agent, Dave Lego, is the new owner of Brightway, Julington Creek in St. Johns. Based in Jacksonville, Fla., Brightway is one of the largest property/casualty agencies in the United States with locations in 19 states.
Lego comes to Brightway from State Farm, where he was a licensed agent for the past seven years.
“I really love what I do, but as a captive agent I felt hamstrung by the lack of options I could offer,” said Lego. “With Brightway, the sky’s the limit. I’m able to provide more choice in insurance brands than ever before and will be able to provide expert counsel to consumers with all types of insurance needs.”
Born and raised in Northeast Florida, Lego graduated from Terry Parker High School in Jacksonville, and went on to earn a Bachelor of Science from the University of South Florida in Tampa. Lego and his wife, Kim, have been married 24 years and have two children. When he’s not working, he enjoys volunteering through the Special Olympics, spending time with family, traveling and attending sporting events. As a Brightway Agency Owner, Lego looks forward to educating his community regarding their insurance needs and helping his friends and neighbors navigate the many options available.
“Dave Lego has built a solid reputation as an Agent in his community, and we are thrilled to introduce him as our newest Agency Owner in Northeast Florida,” said Brightway President, Talman Howard. “We have an army of insurance professionals at our Jacksonville headquarters focused on providing world class service and helping him grow his business.”
Brightway Agency Owners enjoy comprehensive support in customer service, carrier relationships, marketing, accounting and technology. As a result, Brightway agencies consistently outsell other insurance agencies three-to-one.*
