JACKSONVILLE, FLA. — Brightway Insurance announced the opening of four new franchise locations in March. The company’s newest franchisee partners come from a variety of backgrounds, including insurance, sales and customer service.
Antonio Moody, who opened Brightway, The Moody Agency in Atlanta, Ga. on March 21, previously worked for a captive agency for 25 years. David Pakebusch opened Brightway’s first location in the Savannah, Ga. Area on March 21 after spending the last 24 years as an events director.
Conner Orth will run Brightway, The Rock Agency in Wichita, Ks. after two successful years working as a personal insurance specialist for an independent agency. David Fuentes brings over 20 years of sales experience to his new Brightway agency serving the Charlotte, N.C. metro area.
All four Brightway locations offer customized Home, Flood, Auto, Boat, Condo, Renters, Personal Articles, RV, Motorcycle and Umbrella insurance policies from numerous insurance brands.
Brightway’s franchising options offer significant growth opportunities for those seeking to own their own business. Our award-winning customer service and back-office support empower agents to focus on selling New Business to grow their agencies fast.
