As a CUSO, ABS has provided the kinds of services most responsive to the needs of businesses, including consulting and benefits packages with health, dental, accident, vision, and other insurance products customized to help employers attract and retain talent.

“The acquisition of our subsidiary, Allegacy Benefit Solutions, by Hilb is beneficial for current ABS clients and ABS employees because it represents an opportunity to significantly scale up the products and services that are becoming increasingly wanted and needed by employers and their employees,” says Timothy R. Moore, President, Allegacy Services, LLC. “In addition, the sale provides significant additional resources for investment in the rapid growth of Allegacy Services, and that’s a huge benefit for Allegacy credit union members.”

“We’re excited to welcome Allegacy Benefit Solutions to the Hilb Group family,” said Hilb Group CEO Ricky Spiro. “This step represents a perfect fit for our growth strategy of joining with acquisition partners who have a strong history and outstanding reputation of serving local communities. Together we look forward to offering even greater resources to the clients we are privileged to serve.”
