Howell Wallace has owned and operated Pratt Insurance for the past 47 years, leading the Independent Agency’s commitment to provide exceptional and innovative service to its valued customers.

After proudly serving with and receiving an Honorable Discharge from the United States Marine Corps (1963 – 1969), Howell joined the Pratt Insurance team in 1974.  In 1976, after learning the industry at the grassroots level, he was named President & CEO of Smyrna’s oldest continuously operating business.
