Brown & Brown, Inc. is a leading insurance brokerage firm, providing risk management solutions to individuals and businesses. With a long-standing history of proven success and thousands of teammates, we offer knowledge you can trust and strive to deliver superior customer service.
Brown & Brown, Inc. was founded in Daytona Beach, Florida in 1939 by cousins, J. Adrian Brown & Charles Covington Owen. In 1959, Adrian’s son, Hyatt, took leadership of the family business. Under his direction, the Brown & Brown vision of a lean and profit-oriented organization came into focus. In 1997, 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 J. Powell Brown, who became the third generation of the family to guide the company. Operating 291+ offices throughout the United States, England, Canada, Grand Cayman, and Bermuda, we provide a variety of insurance and reinsurance products and services. We are currently the 6th largest insurance brokerage in the U.S. and 8th in the world.
A key differentiator from our competitors is our decentralized operating model, which allows us to maintain prideful relationships with our customers, carriers, and our local community. Our decentralized structure is key! It allows decisions to be made at the local level, eliminating rigid rules and bureaucratic interference that can slow progress and stifle new ideas. It also lends itself to high-quality customer service. Customer service is handled by teammates in local offices rather than centralized customer service teams within a corporate office.
Brown & Brown, Inc. opened an office in Orlando, Florida in 1981. Our location is also the home of Brown & Brown University (BBU), the foundation of the company’s agent training platform. Today, Brown & Brown of Florida, Inc. – Orlando, has over 75 teammates handling accounts of all sizes in a wide variety of industries throughout Florida and across the country. As one of Brown & Brown of Florida’s core platform offices, our office provides a full range of brokerage and consulting services such as Business Insurance, Employee Benefits, Personal Insurance, and Surety Bonds.
