Our Operations

Brown & Brown is a lean, decentralized, highly competitive, profit-oriented sales and service organization comprised of people of the highest integrity and quality, bound together by clearly defined goals and prideful relationships.

Our unique structure delegates daily operations and decision-making responsibilities to local offices and gives office leaders, managers, and advisors the flexibility to craft solutions to best meet the demands of their local markets and customers. Brown & Brown’s decentralized structure also lends itself to high-quality customer service. Customer service is handled by teammates in local offices rather than a centralized customer service team hundreds of miles away from where a loss, claim, or service request may have occurred.

Our Company considers our teammates to be far more than ordinary and we know that they achieve extraordinary results because they are challenged, empowered, and rewarded for doing so.
