TARRYTOWN, N.Y. (March 8, 2017) — Brightway Insurance continues to grow as its first location in the Empire State is slated to open next week. Veteran businessman and now Brightway Agency Owner, Mike Milano, will open the doors to Brightway, The Milano Agency on March 13. While new to New York, Brightway Insurance is the nation’s seventh largest privately held Personal Lines independent insurance agency.
“With the expertise and guidance that Brightway Insurance provides, I will be able to focus on helping my community insure their futures, while realizing my own dream of owning my own business,” said Milano. “Buying insurance is a serious decision and one that should be made with the help of a trusted advisor who can explain coverage in a way that makes sense. I look forward to being that trusted advisor who offers a one-stop-shop for all your insurance needs.”
Milano brings 16 years’ experience in sales and management to Brightway. Most recently, he was instrumental in helping his company grow revenues by 400% by breaking into new regions and negotiating a national distribution channel as a National Sales Manager at Cold Mix Manufacturing. Milano grew up in Mahopac, N.Y., and attended nearby Mercy College, where he graduated with a Business Administration degree, specializing in Management. He and wife, Kelly, of 10 years, live in Briarcliff Manor, N.Y., and have three children. Milano enjoys volunteering with United for the Troops, an organization that collects goods and sends holiday packages to service members overseas. He also coaches AYSO youth soccer in Ossining, while his wife Kelly is an active member in the Ossining Union Free School District PTA. Milano looks forward to delivering a better experience to his friends and neighbors, offering more choice and expert counsel as a Brightway Agency Owner.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Mike Milano to introduce Brightway Insurance to New York,” said Brightway President, Talman Howard. “Brightway Agency Owners outsell other agents two-to-one*.That’s because we provide full support, which frees up their time to focus on each customer’s unique situation and insurance needs.”

The agency offers customized Home, Condo, Renters, Auto, Flood, RV, Motorcycle, Boat, ATV and Umbrella insurance policies from 14 insurance carriers including Mercury, National General, Progressive and Safeco.
