Elliott Smith New Owner, President of Horrell Company

Elliot Smith has acquired Horrell Company and will take over as President. Smith succeeds Steve Horrell, who served as President and Principal Broker. 

Smith was previously with Acadia Healthcare as in-house counsel. Prior to Acadia, Smith was an attorney with Waller Lansden Dortch and Davis, LLP, advising on M&A, joint venture, real estate, capital markets and other transactions. 

Smith said, “I am honored to serve as Horrell Company’s next President, and to build on its strong foundation as one of Nashville’s oldest and market-leading commercial real estate companies. Horrell Company’s roots in this community are strong, dating back to its founding in 1943, and I look forward to growing the legacy built in large part through Steve Horrell’s leadership.”

Ben McNight, a 37-year industry veteran, will work closely with Smith. “Ben has made substantial contributions to Horrell Company and I am excited to have him serve as Horrell Company’s Principal Broker,” said Smith.
