Brightway Insurance, one of the largest personal lines and small commercial insurance agencies in the nation, has announced that it has achieved $1 billion in annualized written premium.
The company also announced that it has received two industry accolades – ranking on the Entrepreneur Franchise 500 list and the Franchise Times Fast & Serious list.
“These awards and our continued growth are a testament to the hard work of our franchisees and the entire team that supports them,” said Mark Cantin, president and CEO of Brightway Insurance. “The passion I see each day for supporting our franchisees and our customers is second to none. We are taking all the right steps to position our agents and our business for robust growth.”
This is Brightway’s sixth consecutive year on Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 list and the 10th year overall that the company has made the list. Factors determining selection for the list include performance in the areas of support, size and growth, brand and financial strength, and startup and operational costs.
This is Brightway’s ninth appearance on the Franchise Times Fast & Serious list, which recognizes the nation’s 40 smartest-growing franchises. Brigfhtway has also appeared on the Franchise Times Top 500 Franchises list.
“Achieving $1 billion in premium and the continued recognition from our peers demonstrates our position as the leading insurance agency franchisor for the past 15 years,” Cantin said. “Leading the way in this competitive industry is a role we take seriously, and we are proud to be the company our franchisees turn to for life-changing opportunities and our customers rely on to protect what matters most to them.”
Last month, Brightway announced the hiring of Shane Blazek as chief technology officer.
