Our Team

Dave Smith - President

In 1979 I opened my first Commercial Truck Insurance Agency in Minneapolis, MN.  This was a branch office of a larger Insurance Agency based out of Omaha, NE.  In 1990 I transferred to Colorado to run the Colorado office.  I opened High Country Truck Insurance Agency in 1992 near Morrison, CO.   Offering Professional service with a personal touch has always been my objective and has allowed the business to successfully grow.
