Man Phung, Brightway Insurance
Multi-unit agency owner
Man Phung owns two Brightway Insurance agencies, both of which he built from scratch using his decade-plus of sales experience. Phung opened his first location in Fishers, Indiana, in July 2017, becoming the first Brightway franchisee in Indiana. A little over a year later, he opened another agency in Round Rock, Texas. In 2018, Phung received three awards from Brightway for his achievements: New Agency Owner of the Year, Mover and Shaker, and Midwest Sales Leader.
A member of the Independent Insurance Agents of Indiana, Phung believes industry professionals need to constantly educate themselves. “You can’t stop learning about the complexity of insurance; consumers rely on our expertise to help them navigate their personal or commercial insurance needs,” he says. “I’d also like to see more agents take time to educate consumers. It’s important to understand we’re not selling a commodity, but rather a transfer of risk designed to protect consumers from financial loss.”
