How do you know if you’re paying too much for the wrong coverage

This age-old burning question is one of the reasons we started BRBG. In most cases, we can answer this and all of your questions to fix potentially costly mistakes for you!

BRBG is a Connecticut based company specifically dedicated to help your family and/or businesses with your insurance needs. We believe that it is important for you to understand what you are paying for and have access to the best insurance carriers in the marketplace. 

Our team strives to understand you and your individual needs before giving advice and recommendations. We are 100% committed to building long-term, trust-based relationships by providing custom, accurate quotes and communicating based on your personal preferences (phone, fax, email). Call us, text us, email us, meet us in person, or find us via social media – we’ll leave it up to you tomake the call!

We make it simple


Alex Horton – Principal

As a coach and entrepreneur, I bring my passion and team spirit to helping families, business owners and entrepreneurs grow and ultimately realize their vision. I believe that: ‘your time is valuable, your sacrifice is real, and your continued success depends on making difficult decisions, taking risks, and acting on the right advice.’ 

As an active member of the community, guiding non-profit agencies to make sure they have the right coverage while keeping insurance costs under control is a personal and professional mission; ‘Executive Directors need to fundraise, not get bogged down with insurance policies…Your board expects you to run a tight ship and we are there to guide and support you along the way.’

Other passion projects include: Chairman Greens Farms Church Outreach & Missions (fighting hunger, homelessness & poverty locally and internationally, leading annual service day of 300 volunteers supporting soup kitchens, shelters, safe houses, mentoring programs, orphanages, coordinating food & clothing drives), Chairman Westport Rotary Membership, Assistant Football Coach Staples High Westport, Chairman Cheshire High Football Alumni Association (supporting high school athletes and promoting safety, manage annual golf tournament fundraisers).

Jill Fitzpatrick – Director of Operations


Whether I am navigating the waters of Long Island Sound on my family’s boat or motorcycle touring through the back roads of New England and beyond, organization is key to a successful journey!

 As a life time member and Student Volunteer Coordinator at St Peter’s Church, having the sense of community along with strategizing with the parishioners provides an effective outcome of each event. Great relationships have been established to both myself and my family as a member of East End Yacht Club, Bridgeport for 25 years. Socialization through discussion and listening allows for continued relationships. With cancer affecting so many of us and our families, Relay for Life is one of my family’s foundations which we are truly passionate about.

Working within both the insurance company and independent agencies for over 30 years, I have gained a strong knowledge of both personal and commercial insurance. Educating my clients of their insurance coverage(s) and being responsive to their needs is a strong belief of mine. When a client thanks me for a job well done, I feel a great sense of accomplishment. 

Main Passion: 
Residing in Shelton with my husband of almost 30 years and two daughters
