Our History

A Visionary at Age 26...

Hayward Brown started his Insurance and Real Estate enterprise on Seabreeze Boulevard in Daytona Beach Florida in 1936. Hayward’s principles were simple, customer focused, and based upon the foundation of integrity. Hayward’s sons Richard and Dana Brown continued the family tradition building Hayward Brown Insurance into a new concept at the time, of giving the community a full service Independent Insurance Agency able to cater to all of a customer’s needs, with multiple insurance companies to choose from. Through decades of hurricanes, and in good times and bad, Hayward Brown Insurance has weathered the storm with our community due to our firm belief and tradition of high moral standards, integrity and grit, instilled upon us by the Brown family tradition which continues today. Richard and Dana Brown were able to eventually retire and turn the business over to former Vice President Charlie Scrabis who began his career with Hayward Brown in 2004 following 5 years of active service in the U.S. Army.
