KATY, TEXAS — Residents in Katy soon will experience a better way to buy insurance for their homes, valuables, vehicles and more. Insurance veteran and now Brightway Insurance Agency Owner, Tiffany Baban, will open Brightway, The Baban Agency on Monday, Aug. 13, in Katy.
“I’ve worked in the insurance industry for 15 years and am thrilled to take this next step where I’ll be able to use my industry knowledge and leadership experience to provide expert counsel to consumers in Katy and neighboring communities,” said Baban. “With the support I receive from Brightway, I’m able to offer more choice in insurance brands than other agencies and give customers my 100 percent focus on finding the right policies to help them protect what they’ve worked so hard to earn.”
A Houston native, Baban worked for a large Agency in Houston as an Account Manager in the Medical Malpractice division for five years. Prior to that, she spent six years working for an insurance carrier as an Assistant Operations Manager, where she led a team of eight that supported the Underwriters in the Commercial department. Baban earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Master of Arts in Human Services from St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas. She and husband, Mansour, have been married eight years and have two children. Baban is a member of the Independent Insurance Agents of Texas and the Katy/Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce. She enjoys spending time with her family, going to movies, parks and swimming during the hot Houston summers. The Babans attend Holy Spirit Church in Houston. As a Brightway Agency Owner, she looks forward to exceeding customers’ expectations by providing an exceptional experience and level of focus they won’t find anywhere else.
“Tiffany Baban’s property casualty experience coupled with the suite of support Brightway provides to Agency Owners will make her an invaluable resource to her community,” said Brightway President, Talman Howard. “We’re thrilled for her and are pleased to team up with her to bring Brightway Insurance to Katy.”
