"Business Insurance Center, Inc." has been trusted with the insurance needs of Florida families, individuals and businesses since it was founded by Robert T. Newsome, Sr. in 1981. In 1998, he handed the business down to Robert Jr.
Robert T. Newsome, Jr.
Robert Jr., preferably addressed as Bob, began his insurance career as an associate agent for Nationwide Insurance in 1993. After gaining a wealth of insurance knowledge, experience, a proven ability in sales and business development, Bob opened “Business Insurance Center, Inc.” located in Orland in 1998 while still maintaining his father’s office in Lakeland.
Bob’s success has been built on the belief that the client’s best interest is always protected, along with their tangible assets. This conviction ranges from a single automobile policy to multi-million dollar businesses alike. No two homes or two businesses are the same. Your needs are unique. That’s why Newsome and Associates offers a wide range of coverage and options that can be tailored to meet your specific needs.
In July, 2007, Bob established Newsome and Associates in Clearwater, Florida. Operating three locations, each staffed with a licensed, accomplished team, assures that all client needs are met, servicing Florida and eight other states.
In early 2011, "Business Insurance Center, Inc." acquired Southern Trust Insurance and added more “A” rated companies to the over 30 already in its lineup of insurers.
Mr. Newsome practices a hands-on approach to business and is happily available for any board meetings or consultations.
As proud parents of four children, Bob and his wife are members of First Baptist Church of Orlando. His personal relaxation includes tennis and golf.
