The new name links the insurance brokerage to its owner, Truist Financial Corp., which was created in late 2019 through the merger of BB&T and SunTrust.

According to John Howard, the company’s chairman and chief executive officer, being part of the Truist family of companies provides BB&T with advantages such as “financial strength, access to permanent capital through our parent, and certainty and stability for our clients and teammates, even in these unsettled times.”

Truist Insurance Holdings operates a portfolio of five complementary businesses: McGriff, CRC Group, Crump Life, AmRisc, and Premium Finance (AFCO, Prime Rate and CAFO).

In addition to the Insurance Holdings rebranding, BB&T Life Insurance Services is also being rebranded as Truist Life Insurance Services, a division of Crump Life Insurance Services, Inc.

The brand transition for Truist Insurance Holdings includes a new website (, logo, and updated design and branding elements.
