Byron Eaton

Agency Owner

I grew up in Birmingham and graduated with an AA and from Marion Military Institute while being commissioned a 2nd LT in the US Army. I received my BS from the University of North Alabama.

I started working with insurance in the early 90’s with Life and pre-need. It has now been 4 years since I transitioned from corporate world to being an insurance agency owner. When the rubber meets the road, I am here to secure your future! I love what I do and I consider myself a Risk Advisor and want you to understand your coverage.
Have a balanced work and family life is really important to me. I have 2 sons, Wyatt and Asher.

John Hensleigh

Vice President of Sales/Marketing

I grew up in Alabama and graduated from The University of Alabama.

I currently have four years of experience in the insurance industry. What most excites me about work is the ability and the opportunity to improve the lives of others. Being a trusted advisor ensures that my client’s well being and their assets are properly covered.

I’m also an avid sports fan and outdoorsman. I could go on for days discussing football/basketball strategy or tips to make a hunting/fishing trip more successful. When not at the office or during the weekends, if I’m not at a sporting event or on a hunting/fishing trip you might can find me at the gym or a local watering hole.

Andrew Schifano

Vice President of Customer Relations
Birmingham is where I grew up and graduated from The University of Alabama. I received a degree in  Bachelor of Science in Business administration with a major in Marketing

I starting working with insurance right out of college.  I stepped away for about 5 years and realized that insurance is where I’m supposed to be. I now have about 12 years of experience and I learn something new everyday. What most excites me about my line of work is when I meet new clients. I enjoy building a policy that meets their needs.  Being their trusted advisor, I get to make sure that no matter what happens in life, your covered.

I really enjoy sports and traveling to the beach.  I believe that in order to be happy you must find the balance between work and home life. When I’m not at work you can find me at the ball park with my son. Other than that, you can find me at the beach or at the pool.

Sharrell Lockett
Customer Service Representative

I am a Customer Service Representative at the Byron Eaton Agency.

My hometown is Sweetwater, AL. I have a BS and MBA in healthcare. I am most excited about meeting and helping new people with their personal needs. I am a caring person and I believe I can make a difference by having a simple conversation about their finances.

I have two kids. Destini,8, and Carter, 3. They are my hobby. I enjoy being with my kids.

If I am not working, I am at the ball field pitching to my kids. I want to help them improve their skills in any sport they want to play. I am a kid at heart. I enjoy playing softball, basketball, and tennis. I also like arts and crafts.

Helping the community is also important to me. It is important to give back to the community and mentoring kids so they can fulfill their dreams and goals.

Nettie McKinney Williams
Licensed Professional Risk Manager

I began my career in the insurance industry in 1997 in medical claims and progressed into Benefit enrollment. In 2015 I expanded my career and became a Licensed Producer and Professional Risk manager.

I grew up in San Francisco, California where I received a BS in Business Administration with a minor in Psychology. I found my love for people and my spirit for community and service. I moved to Alabama in 1996 following my parents. I owned and operated O’Neal Shine at the Birmingham Shuttlesworth International Airport successfully for 17 years, then pivoted my career to Insurance.

What I find most exciting and most passionate about my job is helping people; whether it is protecting someone’s assets or advising someone on the coverage that better protects their family.

Personally, I enjoy time spent with my family. I believe in the balance of life that allows me the time to have with my family and the time for my passion, which is helping people. When I am not working you can find me enjoying my flowers in my garden or somewhere out in the town with my family.
