Brent is President of Abernathy Financial Services and a Managing Partner at Integrity.
Brent grew up in Marietta, Georgia, where he was a star baseball player. In 1996, fresh out of high school, Brent was selected in the second round of the Major League Baseball draft by the Toronto Blue Jays. It was the beginning of a 13-year professional career that included three years in the Major Leagues playing second base for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Kansas City Royals and Minnesota Twins.
Brent was also a member of the USA Baseball Team who won a gold medal at the 2000 Summer Olympics held in Sydney, Australia. During the games, Brent set United States Olympic records for most hits and doubles.
After a knee injury derailed his baseball career, Brent pivoted to the insurance industry in 2010. By applying the same principles and work ethic he had learned from baseball into his business, Brent’s business quickly and steadily grew and flourished. In 2021, Abernathy Financial Services employed more than 2,000 agents writing over $130 million in premium.
Brent currently resides in Fort Walton Beach, Florida with his wife of 20 years, Allison, and their daughters Emily and Anna.
