Producer of the Year

Meet Jeff Rowell, Producer of the Year

No stranger to hard work, Jeff started his own agency in 2013 where he grew revenue to $700,000 with only a handful of employees, before joining with Hutchinson Traylor in 2020, who in 2021 became part of Oakbridge. Jeff lives in Woodstock, Georgia, and focuses his business on senior living firms, commercial software and consulting firms, and personal lines.

Rookie of the Year

Meet Brandon Spivey, Rookie of the Year

With an infectious passion for helping others and supporting his community, Brandon has worked in the insurance industry for 10 years. He joined Waites & Foshee in 2020, who in 2021 became an Oakbridge partner.

“My goal is to make a difference in our customers lives by being a partner and growing with them, not simply talking about insurance. With our Proactive Services department, account managers and marketing team, I feel I am headed in the right direction with the right team by my side, and hoping for an even better 2022,” he said.

Brandon now works exclusively in commercial insurance, mostly with manufacturers and contractors, while also handling life insurance needs upon request. Brandon is from Gray, Georgia, and lives with his wife, Makayla, and his dog, Thatcher. When not working on behalf of his clients, he enjoys golfing, fishing and serving his community.
