ORMOND BEACH, FLA. — Residents in and around Ormond Beach can now enjoy a better experience when buying insurance for their homes, vehicles and much more as Brandon Lester will open Brightway, The Lester Agency Monday, April 12. The Agency is located at 570 Memorial Circle, Suite 225 in Ormond Beach (at the corner of Memorial Circle and Shadow Lakes Boulevard).
“I joined the Brightway family because I want to be able to help every client. I dislike the idea of turning away someone because I have limited access to insurance carriers, so Brightway was the obvious choice when it came time to open my own Agency,” said Lester. “Becoming a Brightway Agency Owner arms me with the resources I need to provide my clients with the best products and service at the best price. At Brightway, The Lester Agency, we look forward to helping our clients protect their financial assets and earning their trust as the No. 1 local Agency with the most choice of insurance carriers. We owe our community nothing but the best, and our top priorities are customer service, insurance education and peace of mind.”
A Volusia County resident for the past 15 years, Lester worked in franchise sales and regional management for seven years prior to joining Brightway. He earned his Bachelor of Arts in Hotel and Restaurant Management from the University of Phoenix in Orlando. He and wife, Tamar, have been married three years. The couple has two rescue dogs and enjoys traveling together. For fun, he loves spending time with his family, traveling and riding motorcycles. As a Brightway Agency Owner, Lester looks forward to being able to help protect his community by offering consumers more choice, more convenience and more confidence.
“We’re happy to welcome Brandon to the Brightway family,” said Brightway President and CEO Michael Miller. “Brightway provides Agency Owners like him with holistic business support so they can focus on providing customers with local, expert counsel and more choice of insurance brands than anyone else.”
