A leading national independent insurance retailer recently opened its first store in the State of Arizona.
Brightway Insurance, with more than 100 stores nationwide, welcomed new agency owner Dave McFarland as he opened his Brightway location at 9393 North 90th Street, Suite 110 in Scottsdale.
“The opportunity to join the fastest growing insurance company in the United States and be the first agency in Arizona is an exciting challenge,” said McFarland. “Brightway and my team will be able to bring the company’s concept of truly taking care of customers’ insurance needs to the region.”
McFarland holds a Bachelor of Science in marketing and management from Indiana University. He has 40 years of industry experience and previously had his own insurance agency, which he later merged with another insurance agency. McFarland is a member of the Scottsdale Chamber of Commerce.
Earlier this year, Brightway announced plans to expand into 17 states and to open up to 68 stores throughout Arizona, which will create more than 250 additional jobs in the state. Brightway currently has offices across multiple states.
