About Us

Brownrigg Insurance Agency is one of the oldest insurance agencies in East Texas. The agency was established in 1886 and family owned since John Brownrigg in 1922. This fifth-generation firm is led by President/CEO Les Rhoades, III, CIC, CPIA.

We are a leading full-service independent insurance agency providing commercial and personal insurance products in addition to life, health and employee benefits. While our clients are primarily located in East Texas, we cover their operations worldwide. Helping our clients make informed decisions about their insurance needs is of utmost importance to us at Brownrigg Insurance Agency.

As a member of the Combined Agents of America, LLC, a 48 member alliance of independent agencies operating throughout Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas, we provide you access to the widest collection of products in the marketplace.
Choosing an agency to handle your insurance needs is time-consuming and sometimes confusing. You may not fully understand what policies are available or how much coverage is sufficient for your needs. That's why all of our staff are licensed insurance professionals. Our staff of agents, account managers and customer service representatives pride themselves on servicing clients in a competent and professional manner.

Brownrigg's staff is friendly, courteous, professional and knowledgeable. We merit ourselves in giving our employees stable employment, educational opportunities, an amiable work environment and a lifetime career.

Our desire is that you feel informed and confident that the best decisions are being made in structuring the insurance program that fits your needs.
