Formerly S.S. Nesbitt Rebranding FAQ

Our Decatur team is growing and has moved into a new space!

Since 1932, Valent Group (formerly S.S. Nesbitt) has been serving the businesses, people and employees of the greater Decatur, Alabama area.

Our Decatur team, led by Sr. Risk Consultant Dan Coulter and supported by Valent’s Huntsville and Birmingham offices, has now moved to Decatur’s Progress Bank building, located at 255 Grant St. SE, Suite 404, Decatur, AL 35601.

“We’re proud of the care and service our teams are providing to Decatur and surrounding areas,” says Paul Barber, Valent Group president. “From business insurance and employer benefits consulting to personal insurance, we’re bringing our Fortune 1000 Experience to the area’s small to mid-size businesses, giving them the expertise and services they need to continue to grow their companies and invest in the future.”

Today the Decatur office has eight team members with over 130 years of experience, including two senior property & casualty client service managers. The team is supported by an employee benefits group led out of Valent Group’s headquarters in Birmingham, along with additional service experts focusing on HR, claims, compliance, wellness, loss control and beyond.
