Brown & Brown is an independent insurance brokerage that is built on integrity, innovation, and a history of superior service. We view insurance differently and use our experience, carrier relationships, and principled customer focus to deliver first-class service and solutions.

Who We Are

The leaders of our office were determined to meet the insurance needs of the community and decided they needed to continue their growth investment as an office. This decision led to one of the biggest acquisitions in our office’s history in 2001 when we acquired Connelly Insurance Group. This also led to the acquisitions of Pilkington Insurance Agency Inc. in 2002, Rogers & Associates in 2003, and finally Whitner National Group Inc. in 2007. It is because of these great agencies that Brown & Brown of Pinellas has been able to leave its footprint in the community.
Brown & Brown of Pinellas is an independent insurance intermediary that provides a variety of insurance and reinsurance products and services to corporate, governmental, institutional, professional and individual clients. Headquartered in Daytona Beach, Florida, offices are located across the United States, with products and services offered through four major business divisions – retail, programs, wholesale brokerage, and services.


Brown & Brown Insurance was founded in Daytona Beach, FL, in 1939 as a two-partner firm and has risen to become the fifth largest insurance brokerage in the nation. Powered by a culture that values individual initiative and instills an indomitable “can-do” attitude, Brown & Brown is arguably the most efficient operating platform in the insurance brokerage business. With more than 80 years of proven success, Brown & Brown continues to grow and thrive in the extremely competitive and constantly changing insurance industry.
