With a drop of ink and a piece of paper, Cherry W. Smith purchased Art's first life insurance policy when his son was born.  Growing up in his father's shadow, who was the first general manager of the Huntsville General Office of New York Life, Art developed a love for and understanding of serving families in the Tennessee Valley area.  Being a native of Huntsville, graduating from the University of Alabama in Huntsville, and with over 30 years in business, Art continues to successfully build portfolios for families and businesses, providing his clients with piece of mind.
