About Greenhalgh Insurance Agency

Knowledge, Experience, and Trust Since 1937

Greenhalgh Insurance was founded in 1937 by Ted Greenhalgh.  Ted was a well-respected member of the Birmingham community and had a core belief that every customer should be treated with dignity and respect.  In 1977, Ted’s son, Russell Greenhalgh, joined his father and worked hard to grow the business.  The agency moved to Cahaba Heights, Alabama and developed a reputation of excellence and honesty.  In 1991, Marcia Greenhalgh began working to help her husband, Russell Greenhalgh.  Adam Greenhalgh joined his father, Russell Greenhalgh, in 2005 and together they continue and build upon the core values and excellence that Ted envisioned for the agency over 80 years ago.

Since 1937, Greenhalgh Insurance has remained a locally owned, family business, that will strive to treat you fairly and with respect in all matters.

Protecting our clients; their families, businesses, and the employees that work for them, is a rewarding responsibility and one that we do not take lightly.

Greenhalgh Insurance is a proud member of FORTIFIED, which is a conglomerate of some of the most distinguished and well-respected independent agencies in the Southeast.
