Business Experience:

More than thirty years ago founded Fred Brown Insurance Brokerage, an independent Employee Benefit consulting firm specializing in mid-sized employer-employee groups. Prior to founding FBIB was Regional VP for a major international insurer responsible for overseeing claims, sales and administration for Texas. Some distinguished clients Fred has had experience representing in his career include Texas’ largest McDonald’s franchise (Janus I), Texaco, Mobil Oil, Applebee’s (Central Texas), Oil Chemical Atomic Workers Union, as well as that “Little Ol’ Band from Texas” – ZZ Top.

Unique risk specialties of the firm include helping employers that want to consider 24 hour medical coverage, self funding, and better network discounts. Fred Brown Insurance Brokerage offers a wide array of assistance and expertise in all areas of Employee Benefits as well as Property & Casualty insurance.

In 2009 founded FBP&C to be able to accommodate all additional lines of commercial insurance products for clients.
