The Insurance Agency Reinvented
Throughout successful careers in the insurance industry, Brightway's founders evaluated what was wrong with the traditional insurance agency model and decided to create a better way of selling insurance. David and Michael Miller founded Brightway Insurance in 2003. Their "reinvention" of how people buy and sell insurance has led to Brightway doubling its sales every year it has been open. The company has grown from three employees and one office in 2003 to over 500 employees and over 100 offices in 2012. Brightway continues to drive innovations that add value through technology, improving the customer support center and seeking new, top rated insurance carriers to partner with.

Brightway Success Stories
"Without any industry experience, I took a leap of faith and decided to invest in a Brightway agency. My husband and I were very impressed with Brightway's owners and the business model. I am very excited to say that I own the first Brightway franchise in Georgia. I am now a fully licensed insurance agent, and I am proud that my name is on the door. I love the insurance industry, and I enjoy building my business. Agency ownership is a completely rewarding experience for me."
- Sarah Asher, Brightway Agent, Atlanta, GA
"Insurance is like low-hanging fruit. Everybody needs it, so the demand is always there, but not everybody knows how to sell it. A company with tools and processes in place that help both the agent and the customer will win over the competition, hands-down, every time. That's been my experience working with Brightway, and my business has been more successful than I ever dreamed possible."
- Billy Wagner, Brightway Agent and Former
Restaurateur, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL
"After 17 years as a State Farm agent, I have a great appreciation for the significant support that Brightway provides me. Their comprehensive approach allowed me to get off to a fast start and grow much more quickly than I ever could have using another option."
- Kevin Feuser, Brightway Agent, Englewood, FL
