Who We Are

Brown & Brown brings national strength with local, personalized service. With a team that is as connected nationally as it is locally, we provide the personalized service of a local agency and the peace-of-mind that is expected from a top ten brokerage firm. We have become a leading insurance partner because we view insurance differently and utilize our vast experience and wide-reaching network. By leveraging our experience, carrier relationships, and customer-centric focus, we deliver superior service and solutions to our customers, both big and small.

Our History

Brown & Brown, Inc. was founded in Daytona Beach, Florida in 1939 by cousins J. Adrian Brown and Charles Covington Owen. In 1961, Adrian’s son, Hyatt, took leadership of the family business. Under his direction, the Brown & Brown vision of a lean profit-oriented organization came into focus. In 1993, Brown & Brown became publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: BRO). Since 2009, the company has continued to thrive under the leadership of Chief Executive Officer (CEO) J. Powell Brown, who became the third generation of the family leadership to guide the company.
