About Our Agency
Founded in 1968 by Bill Russell, BRIA (Bill Russell Insurance Agency) initially represented a direct writer. In 1980, in response to the changing needs of his clients, Bill changed the direction of the agency by representing multiple carriers. In 1983, with the addition of Bob Russell as CFO and John Buchanan as Vice President, BRIA continued to steadily grow and adapt in the Texas business environment. In 1997, Bill, along with six other agency owners, had the foresight and ingenuity to form Combined Agents of America, LLC (CAA). By doing so, BRIA was able to provide its clients a broader range of insurance products and services while retaining the personal touch of a locally owned agency. In 2004, BRIA added a risk management division as a service to its clients. Today, BRIA remains locally owned and operated as a full-service, independent insurance agency committed to providing the highest levels of customer service coupled with the best coverage tailored to each customers needs.
