Meet Our Team

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.

Brian Spears began his insurance career working as an Associate Agent for a Nationwide Insurance agent in Mauldin, SC in 1989. In 1994, Nationwide Insurance approached Brian with the opportunity to start his own exclusive agency. Officially, it was February 1994 when the Spears Insurance Group. was established on Fairview Road in Simpsonville. Today the Spears Insurance Group services well over 3,000 household and business members throughout South Carolina, as well as into North Carolina and Georgia.

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!

Michelle Strange
Associate Agent

I have worked in the insurance industry for over 30 years. I started as a receptionist. Wanting to further my career, I decided to get my Property and Casualty license and later with a little persuasion obtaining my Life and Health License.

Working in insurance, I get the opportunity to meet the people of our community and build a relationship with them, not just being the person that sold them insurance. I love helping guide our community in the right direction in protecting themselves and their families with their insurance needs, easing the worry of the unknown in the insurance industry. Every day and every person is a new experience.

When I am not here helping our customers, I am at home with my family enjoying our time together. I enjoy spending time with children and grandchildren and riding my Harley Davidson with my husband.

My guilty pleasure is probably shopping. I love to shop!! What girl doesn’t, right? When it comes to giving back, having a sister with special needs motivates me to help with any cause of children with special needs, Autism & Cerebral Palsy.

Danielle Garcia

I have worked in the insurance industry for over 5 years. I enjoy working in insurance because I love to help our customers find where they can save money and make insurance tasks as simple as possible. When I am not helping our customers, you will probably find me spending time with my husband or my three sweet sons.

In my free time, I enjoy doing various house projects or if I have the time- I love to travel. My guilty pleasure is a tie between junk food and shopping for home decor! A fun fact about me is that I love the study of history and religion, ask me a question about either topics and I will probably know the answer!

I have a heart that loves to serve other people and I enjoy making myself readily available for those in need. It is almost to a fault! I love to help other people perform tasks like cutting my elderly neighbors’ grass to take my friends grandma to the grocery store.

Alexis Jefferson
Associate Agent

I grew up and still live in Greenville, SC, and attended Blue Ridge High School and graduated in 2011. Eventually, I went to Brewer Insurance School to obtain my insurance license in 2014.

After completing Brewer Insurance School, I went for my Property and Casualty License as well. Since then, I have gained experience in the independent agency field for almost 7 years.  I enjoy building long term client relationships and helping people save money and providing them with the utmost service to assist their insurance needs.

When I’m not at work, I love spending time with my little family DeAndre, Cam who is 4, and our long-haired Dachshund, Lucy! We like to spend time outdoors and also snuggly movie nights with a bowl of popcorn.
