About Insurance Resources


Growing up as the son of two insurance agents, Brian had insurance in his blood from a young age. During his high school summers at St. Petersburg Catholic, Brian started working for his mother’s agency, Insurance Resources. After graduating from High School, Brian decided to become a Nole. While at Florida State University, Brian worked at a Tallahassee independent agency and received both his Property & Casualty and Life, Health, & Variable Annuity Licenses. Brian graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2010 with a Bachelor degree in Risk Management & Insurance. After graduation from Florida State, Brian continued his education at the University of Tampa, graduating Magna Cum Laude with a Master of Business Administration. Upon graduation from University of Tampa Brian accepted a position as a Commercial Lines Account Manager at Bouchard Insurance in Clearwater, FL where he was responsible for managing a multi-million-dollar book of business. While at Bouchard, Brian was awarded the President’s Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) Scholarship and attained the designation in 2 years becoming part of an elite group of insurance experts. In August of 2014 Brian decided that it was time for him to rejoin the family business. He came on as an Account Executive and he has exponentiated Insurance Resources’ growth in both personal and business insurance. Brian’s insurance background allows him assist clients in a unique way. By focusing on risk management, Brian looks to both better protect his clients and lower their overall cost of risk. Brian excels in writing coastal properties and is a wealth of knowledge on both Federal & private flood insurance. Brian is a proud graduate of both Leadership St. Pete (LSP) and the Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce Leadership Institute. Currently Brian is the President of the Pinellas Association of Insurance Agents (PAIA), is a member of Partners in Network, and is pursuing his Certified Risk Manager (CRM) designation. In his free time Brian enjoys fishing, diving, running, CrossFit, and spending time with his girlfriend and friends.

    I have 2 businesses with multiple locations insured by Brian's insurance resources. Every time I talk with Brian, he's knowledgable, quick, efficient, and gets me whatever I need immediately. I wish I could hire him for my company!




  • Warren J. about 2 months ago

    I experienced a very professional team with Sue and Linda and can see why they came HIGHLY recommended. My purchase of a home was not an easy process with remodeling and permits.... The sale literally came down to the last day and with Linda and Sue's dedication even on their time off, i was able to stick to the closing date.... Amazing team and plenty of homeowner's quotes to choose from. They took the time to educate and explain the different types of homeowner's policies and was a good feeling dealing with a local insurance agency. Above and beyond!!!!

    I have been with Insurance fResources for more than 15 years and have always felt comfortable with the planning they helped me do. Finally, I had a claim to file! Ms Linda Loperena at Insurance resources took over the job of getting the claim filed and paid, in a professional and timely manner. She made the whole thing easy for me!

    Brian with Insurance Resources went above and beyond to help me with securing insurance that was proving hard to find. He was quick, knowledgeable and honest. Very professional agent!




  • Herman I. 5 months ago

    Kris is amazing. We had a quick Closing and needed insurance. The policy was secured in record time.




  • Ken L. 5 months ago

    What a refreshing experience. Due to a big price increase in our previous homeowners policy, we were shopping new insurers. Kris and Linda jumped out of the several agencies we were in contact with. Every interaction was unrushed. They asked lots of questions, made sound recommendations, and saved us money. We then had them quote our auto. They found gaps in coverage (which they resolved) and, again, saved us money. Very comfortable that we are in good hands.

    Kris Morison did a great job on my recent insurance renewal. She knows her stuff and does not waste any time getting it done. I really appreciate the fine job she has done for us, in an expedient, knowledgeable and friendly manner.
