Holmes Murphy expands Texas employee benefits team

Independent broker Holmes Murphy has expanded its Texas employee benefits division with the appointment of Travis Brashear as vice president and marketing leader for South and Central Texas.

Brashear is an attorney with 22 years of experience in employee benefits. He most recently served as chief growth officer at Imagine Health, and prior to that executive vice president.

Before that, Brashear has held numerous roles at Willis Towers Watson, including west division leader of OneExchange, and health and group benefits practice leader.

"As we enter into the Houston market, our team is focused on bringing innovative solutions tailored specifically to the companies in the area," said Wally Gomaa, Holmes Murphy employee benefits sales leader and CEO of ACAP Health (a Holmes Murphy subsidiary). "And, nobody knows this market better than Travis."
