We are pleased to welcome Braden Brodsky to The Bailey Group team as an Account Executive on our Benefits team. Take a moment to get to know Braden in his own words and you’ll see why we’re so excited to have him on our team.

Before The Bailey Group

I joined the insurance world straight out of college after graduating from Penn State University in 2013. My first job was as a stop loss underwriter with the intent to learn that side of things before moving on to an actuarial role.

After getting the chance to work directly with the actuaries and underwriters, I decided that I wanted to follow a career path that was more involved and not as routine. That realization led me to a brokerage firm where I worked directly with their financial team assisting clients with their health care costs.

Discovering The Bailey Group

My fiancé is currently attending the University of St. Augustine, which is how I initially found out about St. Augustine. We knew after only a few visits to the area that this is where we wanted to be long-term.

Once I decided to make the move and follow her down here, I knew I wanted to keep working for an insurance broker and The Bailey Group seemed like the broker to work for in the area.

Coming from Pittsburgh, I honestly didn’t know much about the area or the company. Everyone throughout the entire interview process was very welcoming, which made me believe the company itself reflected those same ideals.

Outside of The Bailey Group

Naturally, I enjoy spending time with my future wife. We love to try new restaurants and are even bigger fans of cooking ourselves. We both lead very active lifestyles, so spending time exercising and being outdoors is always something we enjoy. We hope to be able to get a puppy later this year, which will add a whole new world of activities for us to try. When we lived up north, we would take my Dad’s dog hiking and on walks all the time.
