Brian A. Payne, FIELD INSURANCE AGENCY OF SURFSIDE
President and CEO
FIELD INSURANCE AGENCY OF SURFSIDE
Over his 17-year career, Brian Payne has built an exceptional team of 25 individuals, whom he works alongside at several offices in South Carolina. Payne and his team have been recognized by carriers, brokers and industry groups for production, growth and profitability; personally, he has served on a variety of carrier councils and advisory boards and the National Flood Council.
Payne has extensive experience in CAT-exposed property coverage and specializes in both personal and commercial lines, insuring billions of dollars in property coverage throughout the Carolinas. He is also well versed in flood insurance, which he writes through FEMA and the private market. Over the years, Payne has seen tremendous growth by adding new clients organically, which has proven to be increasingly challenging.
“My team spends a lot of time with each other inside and outside of the office,” he says. “This has created a bond and culture amongst us that is very fun and inviting, while keeping our goals and clients’ needs ahead of us. The communication and accountability we have for each other is exceptional.”
