Brown & Brown is the nation’s 6th largest independent insurance agency* with a network of more than 200 offices including Fort Collins, Colorado. Brown & Brown’s corporate office is located in Florida, but the clients and many of the current Brown & Brown staff in Fort Collins have been here for years. * As ranked by, July 15, 2015.

Our history includes the names of several well-established and recognizable insurance agencies. The office began as Galyardt & Harvey in 1930 until the Riedman Corporation acquired the agency in 1992. In 2001, Brown & Brown acquired the agency and it remains part of the Brown & Brown family today.

Our company culture is deeply ingrained. Our team members are bound together by shared goals and our collective commitment to integrity and quality. Yet, it is our decentralized structure and emphasis on individualism that makes Brown & Brown so successful.

Our people, their dedication to service and their relationship in the community, have helped build our solid reputation.

Our expert staff includes Certified Insurance Counselors, Certified Insurance Service Representatives, Certified Public Accountants, Chartered Property Casualty Underwriters, Professional Service Representatives and a Certified Risk Manager. We have more than 300 years of cumulative practical experience as well.

Our office has a simple mission: Bring the power and expertise of a national brokerage into Colorado and offer a level of service that can only be obtained by working with quality individuals who make Colorado their home for work, play and family. We'd like to get to know you!
