Brian Spears

As a local insurance agency in Simpsonville, SC, the Spears Insurance Group has been in business since 1994 serving individuals, homeowners and business owners alike. We find the most value for your dollar for whatever coverage needs you have. From professional to residential, small business to major industry, auto to RV – and everything in between – our years in the insurance business will garner you savings that will amaze. No two financial profiles are exactly alike, and the one-size-fits-all approach of the less experienced or less reputable carriers simply will not meet the standard that Spears Insurance Group has developed over our years in business.

Jessica Adams
Associate Agent

During my final year of college, I started my insurance career in April 2017. After a year, I joined the team here at Spears Insurance Group. I grew up in Simpsonville, SC, about 5 minutes from where our office is currently located. I graduated from North Greenville University with a Bachelors of Science majoring in Business Administration. The most enjoyable aspect of my day is by far interacting with people and finding ways to relate to my clients, and it’s really rewarding being able to provide direction and advice to clients that trust me as their insurance advisor. My guilty pleasures like so many others are my love of coffee, Chick-fil-a and of course my dog. When I’m not working, I can almost guarantee that I am at home with my dog and my husband. A fun fact about myself, I could binge-watch Survivor (CBS) for a whole day or more. Also, I like to listen to hip hop/rap music while I clean my house. By far one of the biggest highlights of my week is being a teacher in the 3-year-old class every Sunday morning at my church, and I adore those kids.

Kris Lacer
Associate Agent

Growing up I had the pleasure to see and visit many parts of this beautiful country. I have been in the US Army for the past 9 years, 4 of which I served as an active duty as an Airborne Infantryman. I really enjoy trying to make dealing with insurance as worry and stress-free for our clients as possible, as well as making sure that they are covered for the surprises that life throws at them. When I am not in the office I really enjoy spending time with my fun, crazy, and hilarious twin daughters who always seem to make life interesting. When I am not spending time with you can probably find me at the golf course or at a Swamp Rabbits hockey game. Most people don’t know that while in the Army, I jumped out of a perfectly good airplane 28 times. I believe is our duty as a community to give back I make it a point to volunteer as a member of the safety team at my church.

Tammy Hall
Commercial Account Manager

I have worked in the insurance industry for 21 years. I gained my Property & Casualty Insurance License in 2004, my Life & Health Insurance License in 2015, and my Surplus Lines Broker License in 2018. I was born in Ohio. My family moved to Orlando, Florida until I was 7 and then Greenville, South Carolina is where I grew up and where I am happy to call home. I attended Southside Christian School and graduated from Bob Jones Academy. I love to work with numbers and finding the best rate for my clients! I could reconcile a bank account and count money all day long at work and at home! Okay, maybe at home I really enjoy sleeping and eating. I can usually be found at home when not working. A great weekend would consist of an evening in Downtown Greenville, shopping of some sort and attending church on Sunday. I can’t resist a home-baked cake with homemade frosting and DONUTS! A fun fact about myself that many don’t know is I can touch my tongue to my nose and I love to have painted nails so I use Color Street nail strips!
