James William “Billy” Smith, the founder of what is now Smith Consulting Group, was born in Albany, Georgia. He began his career at an early age by working in his father's salvage business. In 1961 he started Smith Surplus and Metal Company, Inc and specialized in buying and selling military surplus. This business expanded to include demolition projects for the United States government. SSMC owned its trucks and became self sufficient in their transportation needs. This was the beginning of both the consulting and transportation elements of the businesses, as we know it today. He died in 1984.
