Tampa, FL (March 29, 2023) – Baldwin Krystyn Sherman Partners, LLC (“BKS Partners”) an indirect subsidiary of BRP Group, Inc. (“BRP Group”) (NASDAQ: BRP), an insurance brokerage and risk management firm headquartered in Tampa, FL, is pleased to announce the appointment of Garrett Jones to Partner.

Garrett focuses on leading BKS’ Family Office practice and comes from a long line of insurance professionals. He specializes in implementing and managing complex private risk programs for multi-generational families, single family offices, successful individuals, classic & collector vehicle programs, and coastal flood & hazard coverage.

Prior to joining BKS in 2011, Garrett worked in the automotive service industry for 10+ years, managing a large volume repair facility with around 15 employees.

A Tallahassee native, Garrett went to college at Florida State University, where he received his Bachelor’s Degree in Humanities, with a focus in Religion. He is a member of the Tallahassee QB Club and enjoys playing golf, taking his family to theme parks, and is an avid fan of football! He also enjoys volunteering with Meals on Wheels.

“This is a bit surreal for me. I began my insurance career at BKS a little over 11 years ago in an entry-level role, which has been one of the greatest honors of my life. We, as an organization, truly live by the Azimuth that we preach. The intentional culture that our founders cultivated has allowed me to thrive not only professionally but also personally. I attribute the success I have had with BKS to all of those around me. The relationships I have been allowed to develop with colleagues and clients have been nothing short of remarkable. BKS provides the platform for all their colleagues to flourish in their professional endeavors, which truly illuminates the sincere meaning of acquiring purpose in life. I genuinely enjoy getting to help others protect what matters most to them. I believe in the BKS mission and vision so earnestly that I convinced several family members to join the firm to accomplish our collective pursuits to better the lives of the clients & colleagues we are privileged to work with. There are so many folks within the organization that have given me the opportunity to serve our client community at the highest level, but I would also like to thank one specific individual for this recognition. Without her, I would have never achieved this distinction. Laura Sherman, thank you for all that you have done for me. Thank you for being a Founding Partner of the firm. Thank you for being my mentor and treating me like family. The recognition for me being considered a genuine Partner of the firm is equally shared with you.” – Garrett Jones, Partner.

“We are honored to announce the promotion of Garrett Jones to Partner. Garrett is true home-grown talent, having started as an analyst and quickly climbing his way through the ranks, working closely with Laura Sherman, Founding Partner. Garrett has been a dedicated member of the BKS PRM team for over 11 years. His genuine passion for clients, risk management, and technical acumen are second to none. In addition to his work directly with clients, Garrett also serves as the Director of our Family Office team. Please join me in congratulating Garrett on this well-earned achievement!” – Taylor Reilly, Managing Director of Client Experience.
