LAKE WORTH, FLA. — Josh Hite, Owner of Brightway Insurance Agencies in Boynton Beach, Fla., and Bluffton, S.C., is the new owner of an Agency in Lake Worth, making him the first Brightway franchisee to own three stores. The store in Lake Worth has been rebranded as Brightway, The Hite Agency.

“Over the past three years, I’ve enjoyed tremendous success as a Brightway Agency Owner and am ecstatic to partner with the people who I’ve worked with and know are phenomenal Agents to make their dreams of business ownership come true,” said Hite. “Erica has been working at the Boynton Beach location, and I’m thrilled to see her take on the role of Agency Manager and to enjoy part ownership in the Lake Worth store.”

Josh Hite became the Owner of the store at 12361 Hagen Ranch Road, Suite 501 in Boynton Beach in 2015. In 2017, he teamed up with Gregory Dissel, who also worked at the Boynton Beach office for five years, to open Brightway’s first Agency in South Carolina. Hite’s agency is among the top 10 in sales in the Brightway system of more than 160 agencies across the U.S.
