B&R named leading U.S. wholesaler seven years in a row

For the 7th year in a row, Brown & Riding has been recognized as one of the Top 10 Largest Property/Casualty Wholesalers by Business Insurance. One of the company’s key differentiators is that the firm remains the only Top 10 wholesaler that is 100% internally owned, with the company continuing to offer meaningful ownership to its top contributors. “We have collectively built an organization offering unobstructed opportunities to anyone seeking growth in their career at B&R, and we have a proven track record of developing people and promoting from within,” says Jeff Rodriguez, President and CEO. “This has resulted in a highly professional, motivated, and very diverse organization at all levels, including our shareholder group, executive leadership team, and Board of Directors.”

Having over 40 shareholders who all actively work within the firm, Brown & Riding is well-positioned with a long-term, internal perpetuation strategy. “The well-being and morale of all of our people is a top priority,” says Chris Brown, Chairman. “We believe our ownership model clearly fosters a culture that actively promotes Teamwork, Quality and Professionalism.”
