Scott Named Assistant To The President For Alfa Insurance
February 22, 2011 |

Alfa Insurance President and
CEO Jerry Newby has named
Al Scott of Montgomery to the
position of assistant to the president.
Scott will continue to serve
as general counsel and corporate
secretary for the Alfa Insurance
companies, but he will now play
a more visible role in representing
Alfa and in coordinating functions
of the company’s various divisions,
Newby said.”Al is a good man and trusted
friend who is dedicated to serving
our members and policyholders,”
said Newby, who also
serves as president of
the Alabama Farmers
Federation. “As assistant
to the president, he will
be available to help with
the obligations of this
office while continuing to
provide wise counsel to me
and our board of directors. Al is a
loyal employee who understands
the importance of both
the Federation and Alfa
Insurance. His knowledge
and experience with all
phases of our organization
will be invaluable as
we work to provide the
best service possible to
our members and policyholders.”A graduate of Auburn
University, Scott earned
his doctor of jurisprudence
from Cumberland
School of Law at Samford University
in 1981. He served as law clerk
for Alabama Supreme Court
Justice Hugh Maddox and
as attorney for the city of
Montgomery before joining
Alfa as assistant general
counsel in 1993. Scott was
named general counsel
for Alfa in 1997 and was
promoted to senior vice president
in 1999.”I am honored that Mr. Newby
has asked me to serve
in this new capacity,
but I recognize the great
responsibility it brings,”
Scott said. “Mr. Newby
is incredibly busy. A lot
of people come through
his door, and a lot of
things land on his desk.
Certain things come up
that only he as president
can address. My job is
to do whatever I can to
lighten his load so he has
the time to properly address those
matters. This is another step by Mr.
Newby in his commitment to serve
Alfa’s policyholders and members.”Scott and his wife, Billie, live in
Montgomery where he is a member
of Eastwood Presbyterian Church.
They have two daughters, Lee, who
teaches school in Anniston, Ala.,
and Allison, who serves as public
information coordinator for Alabama
Lt. Gov. Kay Ivey.
