Who We Are

Brown & Brown Insurance had its humble beginnings in Daytona Beach, Florida in 1939, founded by cousins J. Adrian Brown and Charles Covington Owen. In 1961, Adrian’s second son, Hyatt, took over the leadership of the family business. Under his direction, the Brown & Brown vision of a lean and 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.

Powered by a culture that values high performance and perseverance, Brown & Brown is arguably the most efficient operating platform in the insurance brokerage business. Brown & Brown consistently delivers high-quality solutions and services to a broad array of customers. With a precise and focused acquisition strategy, Brown & Brown has become one of the insurance industry’s most powerful and influential leaders.
