TUCSON, Ariz. (July 12, 2017) — Brightway Insurance will open its fourth agency in Arizona next week as veteran insurance agent and now Brightway Agency Owner, Jim Anderson, opens Brightway, The Jim Anderson Agency on the north side of Tucson, on Monday, July 17. While fairly new to the Grand Canyon State, Brightway is one of the largest property/casualty independent insurance agencies in the country.
Anderson has owned his own construction business and comes to Brightway with more than a decade of experience at Geico, where he was an award-winning, top Agent. He sees Brightway as a way to merge his love of insurance and enjoyment of small business ownership.
“As a captive agent, I was limited to the coverage I could offer, but with Brightway I have access to more than 40 insurance companies, which means I can offer more choice and one-stop shopping for my customers,” said Anderson. “With the support I get from Brightway, I’m able to focus on the individual needs of my customers so they get the coverage they need at a price they can afford.”
A Tucson resident for the past 20 years, Anderson and wife, Brett, of five years have a son and a dog. Anderson serves as a volunteer with Habitat for Humanity. To unwind, he enjoys volleyball and karaoke. As a Brightway Agency Owner, he looks forward to building quality relationships in Tucson and nearby communities and becoming the trusted source where you can get expert counsel for all your insurance needs.
“We’re ecstatic to welcome Jim Anderson to Brightway as our newest Agency Owner,” said Brightway President, Talman Howard.“He brings a lot of experience to the table, and with Brightway’s comprehensive system of support, we anticipate nothing but great things from him and his team.”
Brightway Agency Owners enjoy support in customer service, carrier relationships, marketing, accounting and technology, which frees up their time to focus on leveraging the broadest possible selection of insurance companies to meet each customer’s unique needs. As a result, Brightway agencies consistently outsell other agencies two-to-one.*
Brightway, The Jim Anderson Agency is located at 4695 N. Oracle Road, Suite 115, in Tucson (in the same shopping plaza as Hertz and R&S Mattress). The Agency offers customized Home, Condo, Renters, Auto, Flood, RV, Motorcycle, Boat, ATV and Umbrella insurance policies from more than 40 insurance carriers including American Strategic, Nationwide, Progressive, Safeco and State Auto.
