Leadership

TexCap’s Leadership Team is well-balanced in regards to tenure, skill-set, and expertise, which gives us confidence and consistency for the road ahead. Our initiative to leave a legacy for the next generation was solidified when naming Drew Brown and Mike Bass as TexCap’s Co-Presidents, effective January 1, 2019.

We are taking tangible, innovative steps toward perpetuation. More than anything, we want TexCap to leave a legacy and remain one of the top independent insurance agencies in Texas. Drew and Mike work well together and I think their differing talents and strengths will help TexCap move forward together in a dynamic way.
