FORT WASHINGTON, Pa--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Patriot Growth Insurance Services, LLC (“Patriot”), a national retail insurance agency, today announced the addition of Worksite Benefit Services, Inc. (“WBS”) to the Patriot platform. The partnership with WBS expands Patriot’s existing capabilities in the voluntary employee benefits space and adds additional enrollment consulting expertise.
Founded in 2002 and based in Alabama, WBS is a full-service voluntary benefits consulting firm specializing in custom outsourced benefit management solutions. The company offers a unique suite of employee benefit communication, engagement, enrollment and technology solutions to a variety of clients. WBS is led by Darell Eidson and Rick Herring, two dynamic executives with nearly 40 years of combined experience.

“We prioritize the strength of our client partnerships above all else,” added Rick Herring, co-founder and CFO of WBS. “Patriot shares our commitment to exceptional customer service, and we are excited to join like-minded insurance leaders as part of the Patriot platform.”
The addition of WBS marks Patriot’s 21st partnership since its formation in early 2019, demonstrating the platform’s relentless pursuit of strategic growth and its ability to identify and seamlessly integrate premier insurance agencies across the U.S.
“WBS checks every box for us, and from the moment we met Rick and Darell we wanted them to be a part of what we are building,” said Matt Gardner, founder and CEO of Patriot. “We are thrilled that they have chosen to continue to grow their business within the Patriot family, and we look forward to leveraging their expertise across our entire organization.”
