About Us

Brock Lacy

Brock started out in Insurance at a local insurance agency specializing in customer relationships and life insurance. After 4 years of learning the business, Brock decided that owning an exclusive agency was the route that best afforded him the ability to foster new relationships and provide for his growing family. After selling his agency in 2018 to focus on family and his aging parents, he decided on continuing his career in Commercial insurance. Commercial insurance has always been a fascination and desired modality to reach and affect business owners across our Metroplex.

Brock spends his spare time with his wife and kids, on their property in Magnolia which has a small town feel and plenty of space for the kiddos to grow up. When we aren’t in the pool, we are exploring the small town, playing with the kids and being involved with our Church.

Working with an incredibly talented team has made the transition tangible and exiting. Being a part of an organization dedicated to family, success and development have afforded us a unique opportunity to become an integral part of our community while providing customized insurance solutions.
