CEO Spotlight – Greg Jaap, Brown & Brown Insurance

As an FSU alum and Tallahassee resident, Greg Jaap knows the value of working for a company whose Florida roots run deep.  Greg is the Profit Center Leader and Executive Vice President of the Tallahassee division of Brown & Brown Insurance.  Since opening its doors in Daytona Beach in 1939, Brown & Brown has grown into one of the largest and most respected insurance intermediaries in the nation with more than 75 years of continuous service.

Brown & Brown Insurance is a full-service, independent agency offering personal insurance, business insurance, employee benefits, and surety bonds.  The Tallahassee office has been providing customized packages to fit its customers’ varied and unique needs for the last fifteen years.  Under Greg’s leadership over the last five years, the Tallahassee office has expanded its capabilities to offer their clients the local presence and expertise of a small-town agency with the resources and strength of a large, international insurance brokerage.

In 2004, Greg started as an intern at the Brown & Brown corporate headquarters in Daytona Beach, Florida.  He brings over 14 years’ experience to the Tallahassee profit center.  His favorite part of the business is what makes him a trusted advisor and leader:  “I enjoy the challenge of finding the right insurance solution for each of my customers and the relationships that I build along the way.  Everyone’s needs are different, and it’s my job to ensure our customers have the proper coverage for the best value.  These people are my neighbors and valued members of our community—their protection is my priority.”

As a member of the Tallahassee business community, Brown & Brown proudly supports local organizations and charity events like the United Way of the Big Bend, TMH Golden Gala, Boys and Girls Clubs of the Big Bend, LeMoyne Chain of Parks Art Festival, and the upcoming Big Bend Heart Walk.

Recently, Brown & Brown Tallahassee has received local and state-wide recognition.  In June, the office was voted Tallahassee’s Best Insurance Agency at the 2018 Demo Awards.  In its August issue, Florida Trend named the Tallahassee Brown & Brown office among the top five of the “Best Companies to Work for in Florida.”

When Greg is not in the office, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Kelly, and daughter Kenzie.  They are thrilled to be welcoming a baby boy, Tucker, in October.  Greg and his family are avid Seminole fans and proudly support their Noles.
