State Chapter Presidents

State Chapter Presidents


NAIFA runs on volunteer power. Each state chapter has its own board headed up by a volunteer chapter president. Members that become state chapter presidents have typically given years of service to NAIFA and served at the local chapter level prior to the state level. There are many honors state presidents receive--one favorite is being the flag bearer for the state flag during our annual meeting.

Alabama State Chapter President

Jimmy Holderfield

I serve individual clients by first serving as their trusted financial and insurance professionals with quality education, smart insurance plan design, and efficient underwriting. My team and I provide insurance strategies and insights that help financial and insurance advisors make high quality recommendations to minimize their client's impact of unpredictable and unforeseen events or conditions that threaten their financial future. I believe relationships developed through mutual trust and added value are time-tested virtues of success and my practice is built around those cornerstones.

My beautiful bride is a nurse at Brookwood Hospital and my daughter attends Vestavia Hills Elementary School. I enjoy photography and collecting singer/songwriter music along with gardening and bird watching in the occasional spare time. I am also a member of Briarwood Presbyterian Church and serve on the board of Young Business Leaders.

I also serve or have served on boards with Young Business Leaders, National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors, and Cornerstone Schools of Alabama.

Imagine, a local insurance agency with live, local professionals that understand your concerns and can help personally guide you through every aspect of your insurance.
