Latest investment expands service and product capability for employer-based supplemental benefit programs
Cleveland, OH – February 6, 2017 – Selman & Company, a leading insurance administrator serving more than 1,500,000 individual customers throughout the US and Canada, has acquired the business and assets of Vision Financial Corporation, a third party administrator (TPA) of voluntary worksite benefits. The combined firm’s portfolio leverages Selman’s scale and investments in talent and technology with Vision’s experience and expertise serving employer, producer, and carrier clients.
“This addition of Vision’s talented team and client roster is a strategic fit that increases our appeal in the growing employer market segment,” said David L. Selman, President and CEO. “We’re excited to offer more opportunities for our clients and partners and to undertake this significant expansion,” he added.
