Our Founder and History
Our agency was founded by Art Gernt, Sr. After serving in the United States Air Force, Art graduated from Tennessee Tech University and began his career in the insurance industry as a Claims adjuster for companies such as The Travelers, General Accident and Continental before deciding to become an independent agent. As an independent agent, Art was able to build an agency that represents a carefully selected group of financially sound, reputable insurance companies. He realized the importance of not working for one particular insurance company, but working for you, the client. Art retired in 2006 and is currently residing in Charleston, South Carolina.
