In 1968, Leon Haynes started as a life insurance agent for Traveler's Insurance in the Western VA region. He then served as a general agent for TransAmerica for over 40 years gaining continual knowledge and experience about every aspect of the industry. His success led TransAmerica to offer him a brokerage general agency in Virginia Beach in 1996.
He was then able to use his brokerage position to offer his expertise to other independent agents to help them establish better access to their own client's needs and ultimately grow their own businesses. Thus, a wholesale insurance broker's business was born with a focus on helping other agencies in the State with their needs. Since then, the company has become one of the industry's most respected insurance brokers offering over 30 carriers providing a wide range of personal protection and financial products.
Leon's son, Justin Haynes, joined the family business in 2000. HBG was officially established in September 2004 when Justin expanded the newly renamed company with the purpose of expanding their services to a wider community of agents nationwide.
