Our history

Bryan Insurance Group, can trace its Blount County roots all the way back to 1921 with Gillespie Insurance Agency. Well known at that time, Gillespie would later become part of the Blazer Agency, run by Earl Blazer. Over the years, two other successful companies were serving customers in East Tennessee. In the 1950’s M.B. Crum, known as Major, founded Crum Insurance Agency. The story of Hitson Insurance began in Blount County in 1939. M.C. Hitson was the first local agent for StateFarm insurance in Maryville. His son, Charles, was an agent for Prudential insurance company in town, and both men established themselves as reputable agents in Blount County. In 1979, Gary Hitson (grandson of M.C., son of Charles, and now retired) decided to open his own insurance company, and that’s when Hitson Insurance originally got its start.

In 2014, Matthew Bryan brought his expertise in the insurance industry and accomplished business background to the table, and went on to purchase Hitson Insurance in January 2016. In January of 2017, Hitson Insurance merged with Crum & Blazer, to become Hitson, Crum & Blazer Insurance, Inc. With a past history of working in this area since the early 1920s, a primary benefit of this merger is that the company provided expanded diversity of coverage options to best meet clients’ changing needs.

The company is now Bryan Insurance Group, Inc., and in addition to the new name and identity, a new location was added in Farragut in order to better serve the needs of the local community. The company now serves more clients throughout East Tennessee, while upholding the same old-fashioned traditional values of honesty and integrity. The Bryan Insurance Group vision is to provide the best possible customer service to the community at the most affordable rates available. Their goal is to help every client they have, both business and personal, in every season of life and business.

Why do business with Bryan Insurance Group?

Unlike a captive, or direct insurance company who only offers their own proprietary products, our agency is 100% independent of any one company. Many insurance consumers don’t fully understand just how important that really is.

When it comes to something as important as insurance, it’s imperative that you work with an agency who has an in-depth knowledge of multiple insurance products, companies, and guidelines — not just one.

At the end of the day, what separates one agent from another, is their ability to proactively service their policy holders, and their knowledge of the insurance industry, products, and different situations that may present themselves to their clients.
