LAKE WORTH, FLA. — Josh Hite, Owner of Brightway, The Hite Agency in Boynton Beach, Fla., and Co-Owner of Brightway, The Dissel Agency in Bluffton, S.C., recently expanded his business with the purchase of a third Brightway Agency at 6616 Hypoluxo Road in Lake Worth (in the Winn-Dixie shopping plaza). 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 office.”

In addition to Erica Hite, Andy Miller from the Boynton Beach office will join the team at the Lake Worth office to ensure customers in that area get the same level of expert counsel customers have grown to expect from the Boynton Beach office.
