KING OF PRUSSIA, PA (January 10th, 2022) – Odell Studner Group, a leading provider of risk management consulting and insurance services, today announced a merger with the Pennsylvania Division of Doyle Alliance Group, an employee benefits brokerage and consulting firm. Both firms are part of global fintech leader Acrisure, which provides intelligence-driven solutions spanning insurance, reinsurance, asset management, real estate services and cyber services.
“Doyle Alliance Group shares our local knowledge and commitment to clients’ long-term success,” said Geoffrey Goldwater, President and Chief Strategy Officer of Odell Studner. “In fact, we’ve for years shared an office in King of Prussia and partnered to meet client needs. By joining together formally, we’ve greatly expanded the services and trusted guidance we can offer customers. I’m very excited for the road ahead!”
Rob Cola, principal and partner of Doyle Alliance Group and 30-year veteran of the employee benefits field, becomes President of the new Employee Benefits practice at the merged companies. Rob has held leadership positions at National Employee Benefits Consultant/Brokers and has significantly grown the operations that he has run during his career. He also chaired and founded National Benefits Practices.
“Middle-market companies are facing extreme economic pressure. As employee benefits consultants, we’re seeing firsthand the massive changes impacting health benefits and other business-critical services, particularly due to rising healthcare costs as a result of new therapies, technologies and treatments,” said Cola. “It is imperative that we continue to deliver the consulting advice and solutions to our clients during these critical times. To that end, we’re pleased to join the Odell Studner team under the expert leadership of Steve Odell and Geoff.”
Odell Studner and Doyle Alliance Group have been with Acrisure since 2015 and 2013, respectively. They are among the hundreds of Partners powering Acrisure’s unique “Best of Human and AI” strategy, which blends the intelligence, judgment, and relationship-building abilities of people with proprietary AI tools and data analytics. This approach has seen Acrisure expand from $38 million to over $3.3 billion in revenue with a presence in 44 states and nine countries.
“These Partners have for years represented the pinnacle of client service and Acrisure’s entrepreneurial culture. Together, I expect great things for clients as they can expect broadened solutions and capabilities, backed by the global expertise and technology of Acrisure,” said Grahame Millwater, President of Global Insurance at Acrisure.
