Your Partner In Protection

Brian Carden is a 36-year veteran of an ever-changing insurance and financial services industry. Whereas many agents only represent the brand name on their door, Brian represents YOU through an exclusive alliance with Elite Insurance Solutions. No matter who you are, what you do, or what your worth, Brian can help build a moat of protection around your castle.

Brian began working in the industry in 1983, after responding to a flyer placed on his apartment door by a recruiter. Over time, his new job slowly but systematically morphed into an occupation, one which led him through bull and bear markets, and ongoing changes in the insurance industry. Today, Brian views his career as a calling to serve, and views himself as a “professional explainer,” particularly as it relates to separating fact from fiction surrounding all things insurance.

On a personal level, Brian has lived through natural disasters like the Nashville flood of 2010. He has witnessed dear friends lose everything and seen others die prematurely, but with no insurance or financial plans in place. He has grieved over the loss of an entire family of close relatives, all of whom perished in a private plane crash. He remembers the ramifications from a lawsuit against his own family over a freak accident that occurred at a neighborhood event. And perhaps most impactful, he walked away from a head-on collision, one which left the insurance adjuster wondering how he made it out alive.

In sum, Brian’s life experience is precisely what helps him relate to your individual needs, and understand the critical importance of protecting yourself and the assets that you have worked so hard to obtain. The signature C in Brian’s logo is a tribute to both his grandfather, R.W. Caldwell, and his father, Gene Carden, who often said to Brian:

“Son, I never worked a day in my life; I just got up every morning and went out to help people.”

Today, this simple reflection is Brian’s mantra, and he would be honored to have the opportunity to serve you.

Brian Carden has been published in the Nashville Business Journal, Denver Business Journal, Boston Business Journal, Financial Advisor Magazine, and the Williamson Herald. He writes regular articles for Horsesmouth, a national, online publication reserved for financial advisors, in addition to a personal blog on insurance, family, and everyday things that make him go “hmmm.”
