Brian English joined the CRC team in November 2020 when W. Brown & Associates Property & Casualty Insurance Services was acquired by CRC Group. He serves as Office President where he leads a high-performing team in providing commercial insurance agents and brokers with market access for a wide range of coverages including Property, Liability, Professional, Transportation and Aviation Insurance. 

Brian earned a B.A. from San Diego State University in 1978 followed by a Chartered Property and Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) designation in 1986. He went on to co-found W. Brown & Associates Property & Casualty Insurance Services in 1988. With more than 35 years of wholesale insurance experience, Brian has cultivated the kind of lasting industry relationships, collaborative leadership skills, and deep expertise that helped earn W. Brown & Associates recognition as one of Business Insurance’s 2019 Best Places to Work. He truly loves helping retail agents and brokers find solutions to complex problems, and it shows through in world-class service and strong professional results. 

Brian, and his wife Meg, call the Irvine area home. While Brian is proud of a decades long career in an industry he loves, he’s most proud of the beautiful family they’ve built. Outside the office, Brian and Meg enjoy spending time with their children, Jeff, Erin, and Mike and their families, including beloved grandchildren – Owen, Evelyn, Rose, and Eloise.
