As we continue to experience growth in the North Alabama Market, our Huntsville team has been growing as well. So, we thought it was time for someone who knows the area well to captain that team.

Thankfully, we had just the man for the job! We are very happy to announce Senior Vice President L. Dickerson (Dick) Fountain has been named the new Market Executive for Huntsville.

Dick is a Huntsville native and respected leader in the community, having served as an independent insurance agent for more than 30 years before joining S.S. Nesbitt in 2014.

Our president, Paul Barber, says “Huntsville is one of the most dynamic business environments in the country. Our success as an agency is vitally connected to growing our presence in North Alabama, and we are honored to have a man of Dick’s integrity serving as our Huntsville sales leader.”

Before joining SSN, Dick was a Founding Partner or FPH Benefits, LLC, and Fountain Parker Harbarger & Associates, LLC. He also holds a bachelor’s degree in Insurance and Real Estate from Jacksonville State University.

Dick has also held prestigious positions in the insurance community, including president of Huntsville Independent Agents, chairman of Alabama Independent Young Agents Committee and AIIA board member. He is also committed to the local community and is involved with multiple organizations including the Chamber of Commerce, Housing Authority and Boys and Girls Club.

Dick has expressed his excitement to take on this new role with the sales team. He has a deeply rooted love for the Huntsville area and for serving businesses by providing solutions to their employee benefits and property and casualty needs. We expect the growth we’ve seen in both practices over the past year to continue, and we look forward to having Dick at the helm.
