Our Story

About Byars|Wright

Since 1946, Byars|Wright, Inc., has developed into a major provider of commercial and personal insurance with four offices in the greater Birmingham area. Still operating as a family-owned independent insurance agency today, the firm oversees the risk management and insurance needs organizations throughout the United States and represents numerous companies, all with a history of excellent service. Byars|Wright has been designated a Best Practices Agency by the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of America and was also named “Best Companies to Work For in Alabama” by Business Alabama in 2016, 2017, and 2018.

 

The agency employs more than 50 professionals, including the 15 representatives contained within its Risk Management Services division. These individuals provide risk control, human resources, and claims consulting services. While we continually strive to build a positive, cohesive company culture and work environment, we’re not just a team at Byars|Wright, we’re family. We strive to treat others the way that we want to be treated and this seeps into every relationship we build. Selling insurance is not our mission, building and protecting relationships is. With every relationship, we seek to understand, we work to earn trust and then we deliver on our promises – every time, no exceptions.
