I am also grateful to call this wonderful city home to our corporate headquarters, and the place my wife and I have chosen to raise our family. This project represents more than the technological innovation it delivers. It continues the family legacy of serving this community that my wife’s grandfather, Britt Simms, began in the 1950s with Cooper Simms Nelson and Mosley Insurance, and was carried on by my father-in-law, Steve Simms. During these unprecedented times, I am especially grateful to partner with the city in giving back to the community. This project will enhance the experience of the special place we call home.”
