Meet Our Team
Danielle BordelonPresident & CEO
Danielle received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, with a concentration in photography from Louisiana State University in 2003. That same year she established Bray Danielle Photography, Inc. which quickly grew into one of the most sought after wedding photography companies in South Louisiana. From that business emerged a new passion, entrepreneurship. Danielle began searching for a new business venture that would allow her to exercise her love for all things business including marketing and advertising. At that same time BJ, our founder, was ready to step down as owner of Crump's Commercial Agency, Inc. With Danielle being BJ's granddaughter, the two collaborated. Danielle began learning the ins and outs of the agency in October of 2014, receiving her licenses in property and casualty and life and health shortly after. The agency was sold to Danielle in July of 2015. Danielle currently serves as president.
“If you ever talk to BJ about me, she calls me Bray, as that is my first name, but I decided that name wasn't cool when I was 8, so I go by Danielle now, which is my middle name. I am from Ruston, LA. I have been with my hubby Scott now for 15+ years and we have 2 beautiful children, Brooke, 9, and Alex, 5. I love photography, running a business, decorating, daydreaming, listening to music, drinking CCs coffee, and eating good food.”

"I grew up in the small town of Ponchatoula, La and recently moved with my husband and 3 children to a 37 acre farm in Tylertown, MS. We absolutely love the serene rolling hills and peaceful sunsets. I have a large garden, many fruit trees and lots of animals that keep me very busy when I'm not at work. I enjoy hunting, working in my garden and camping every chance we get. Like our agency founder, I too have Indian background. I am very proud of my Poarch Creek Indian heritage. Many of my family members still live on the Indian Reservation in Atmore, AL where we visit for the annual Thanksgiving Pow Wow.”
