Continuing a family legacy, Greg Smith started in the loss adjusting and loss control business in 1987. He was trained by his world-renowned father, Harold J. Smith, in a firm called Smith Adjusters. For over 20 years, Greg has been enhancing and refining his knowledge in the niche markets of fine art, jewelers block, armored car and crime, from both the loss control and adjusting perspectives. Greg sold Smith Adjusters, Inc to Cunningham Lindsey International (CLI) in 1999. He was the Director of the Fine Arts and Jewelry division of CLI in the United States.
In 2004, he began his own company called G. J. Smith & Associates, Inc. and remained at it’s helm until he joined Berkley Asset Protection Underwriters. Greg has been instrumental in settling many of the most notable insurance claims and in property recoveries in his fields of expertise over the past two decades. His experiences have enabled him to foster extensive contacts in the International fine art & jewelry communities and in law enforcement. Greg’s advice on loss control is often sought by insurers seeking ways to better protect valuables from both security and operational standpoints. His expertise in risk assessment and direct knowledge of insured’s and premises is a valuable asset.
