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 andContinental before moving back home and opening Gernt Insurance in 1981.
As an independent agent, Art was able to build an agency that represents a carefully selected group of financially sound, reputable insurance companies.
