To learn more about Brian, check out this Q&A:
Q: How did you get into the insurance industry?
A: I started as an Allstate agent in 2009 and later transitioned to Chubb as a marketing/sales representative in 2012.
Q: Are you seeing any new trends in the industry?
A: An increasing number of insurance agencies are selling to large multi-national brokers and private equity backed firms. These organizations are often focused on large commercial accounts, and typically, don’t show much interest in providing insurance solutions for small businesses and individuals. This creates a fantastic opportunity for a local, independent agency like The Prewitt Group to step in and tailor insurance coverage to this growing segment of the population.
Q: What’s your favorite part of working for The Prewitt Group?
A: It’s absolutely the people that make up the agency. Everyone takes a lot of pride and accountability in their work – it shows great dedication to our clients daily.
Q: Who’s your biggest role model?
A: My dad has always set a tremendous example as a family leader and hard worker. Plus, he is always available as a friend and mentor.
Q: What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
A: Always work hard and put forth your best effort, but also remember to work smart. Harder is not always better. Sometimes harder is just harder.
Q: What are three words that describe you?
A: Perseverant. Committed. Analytical.
Q: What’s something most people would be surprised to learn about you?
A: I’m originally from Connecticut and moved to Birmingham in January 2005 to work in minor league baseball for the Barons. It was supposed to be a temporary assignment, but instead I met my now wife a few months into living here and never left.
Q: Favorite quote?
A: “God doesn’t call the equipped. He equips the called.” – Wade Griffith
Q: Favorite travel spot/vacation?
A: New York City
Q: Favorite spot to hangout in Birmingham?
A: Pretty much any golf course in town.
A: Enjoying time away with my family at Lake Martin, playing golf and other sports activities.
Q: Tell us about your family.
A: My wife Courtney and I have been married for 9 years and have two kids, a 3-year-old daughter, Kate, and a 10-month-old son, Jamey.
