The Crichton Group was started in 1979 and has grown to become one of Tennessee’s largest independent insurance agencies. They acquired E.S. Brugh Co., an agency with a proud heritage dating back to 1902, back in the 1980s and merged with two other operations in the 90s. Today, The Crichton Group surpasses $2 billion in high net-worth client coverage and continues to grow. I had a chance to sit down with Austin Madison, Senior Vice President of The Crichton Group, and talk about the industry, the future and his unique perspective.

Rick Ramos: Hey Austin, tell me a little about yourself and how you started in the industry.

Austin Madison: I started in the employee benefits industry with Unum, calling on brokers for life and disability insurance. I was working with Crichton as a client when they asked me to come work for them.
