Company History

SBS, a Marsh & McLennan Agency LLC Company was founded in 1998 on the premise that we would employ team members that truly have a passion for our business and are uniquely qualified to serve our health and welfare customers. These team members are leaders in their respective areas and have a shared vision to bring together a team of experienced professionals in an effort to provide our customers with a best in class benefit management experience. Our model, by design, delivers on intelligent plan management driven by data and not simply market trends. Our team members have authored countless white papers, presented at numerous benefit trend seminars and recently authored a book on wellness with supporting views from industry leaders such as Dee Edington, PhD, Director University of Michigan, Health Management Research Center and Al Lewis the founder of the Disease Management Association of America and current president of Purchasing Consortium International.

We believe that our customers deserve continued consulting and team support during the initial due diligence and plan audit process and that this service platform should continue indefinitely in an effort to gain the value of the historic strategy perspective. Unlike some firms, MMA commits your lead consultant will not phase out after the initial due diligence and plan implementation process but remain a consistent and central member of the plan management team. In addition, the assigned service team continues to maintain the relationship with our customers throughout the full duration of the relationship. Too often we hear from new customers that turnover among the account management team negatively impacted the service levels provided. It is difficult to make guarantees around employee retention but we are confident that our legacy employee ownership model has enabled MMA to enjoy consistency among our team members. In fact, since inception, our company has not experienced turnover among either our consulting or account management personnel. 

SBS agreed to be acquired by Marsh & McLennan Agency (MMA) in 2010 and joined the Atlanta regional office. Our full range of consulting services includes:

  • Employee Benefits
  • Corporate Health Management & Wellness
  • Property & Casualty
  • Risk and Safety Management
  • Personal Insurance
SBS, a Marsh & McLennan Agency LLC Company continues to run independently of other Marsh operations.

All client management decisions are made on the local level, yet we have access to Marsh's global resources. By bringing the Marsh & McLennan brand and a differentiated service offering to our valued customers, we affirm our commitment to deliver world-class capabilities and a simple, nimble and effective customer experience. No other agent can combine Marsh & McLennan's brand value with the vast insurance market presence of the MMC family of companies. Such a foundation, combined with our access to technical and industry expertise, gives us an intellectual and innovative reach available to few others in the local or regional agency space. As part of the MMC family, the Employee Benefits division has access to both Marsh & McLennan Agency and Mercer tools and resources, but maintains our local service and representation.
