OAK BROOK, Ill., July 13, 2023 (Newswire.com) – Millennium Trust Company, LLC, a leading provider of health, wealth, retirement, and benefits solutions, today announced the acquisition of Benefit Resource, LLC (BRI), a leading provider of FSAs, HRAs, HSAs, commuter plans, and COBRA administration services.
“Our strategy is building a unified and interconnected range of services and solutions that take a holistic approach to financial wellness. BRI brings strong relationships, expanded offerings, and most importantly, a forward-thinking and client-focused team,” said Dan Laszlo, Millennium Trust chief executive officer. “Together we will create a best-in-class solution for our clients and the consultant and broker community as a health and benefits category leader.”
For 30 years, BRI has combined industry experience, effective technology, and exceptional service to support more than 400,000 participants across over 5,500 employer plans nationwide. The company’s strong distribution channels and partners, small- and medium-sized business experience, commuter benefit plan capability, and best-in-class functionality will help Millennium Trust gain new capacity as it continues to elevate client offerings and user experience through innovation and technology investments.
“As we look at ways to serve our clients more holistically, it was important for us to find the right partner, and I feel we have done that,” said Jason Hall, BRI chief executive officer. “With Millennium Trust, we’ll work to combine our solutions, accelerate our growth, and continue to offer client-focused, technology-enabled best-in-class solutions for the small- to mid-market.”
