As they say, TEAM means: Together Each Achieve More!”

“Robert brings a set of unique traits that will be invaluable as our agency manager for Kansas and Missouri,” said Manoj Purohit, Senior Vice President, Central-West Region Manager for Alliant National. “Having over 25 years of industry experience, including examining title and owning a successful agency, Robert promises to be a true resource and partner to our agents. We are excited to have him join the Alliant National team.”

Smith believes strongly in giving back and is highly active in his community. He is active in various community organizations, including the Richmond Masonic Lodge No. 57 AF & AM, and the Richmond Chamber of Commerce. Additionally, he is a Paul Harris Fellow with the Rotary International, which provides funding to community projects.

Outside of the office, Smith spends time with family, and enjoys boating and supporting the Kansas City Chiefs.
