We've merged with Harding Benefits Consulting!

October 2016

Roy Riley, President of Peel & Holland, and Kelly Harding, President of Harding Benefits Consulting, have announced the merger of their agencies.

Harding Benefits Consulting is based out of Franklin, Kentucky and specializes in partnering with individuals and families on their health insurance needs as well as with employers to design and implement effective benefit programs. Harding Benefits Consulting serves clients across Kentucky.

Peel & Holland and Harding Benefits Consulting have worked closely together since Harding Benefits was formed in 2012.  Pairing resources, experience and expertise; both organizations see the merger as a way to better serve their clients.

“At Peel &Holland, we are committed to the continual growth and development of our team, our collective knowledge and capabilities, and the services we provide for our clients,” said Riley. “Having worked closely with Kelly and his team for many years, we had always hoped the opportunity might one day be right for our organizations to become one. We are very excited for what this means for Peel & Holland, our team and most importantly, our clients.”

The merger offers collaborations that will strengthen both companies. “Our two agencies represent decades of experience with similar cultures and a shared commitment to our clients,” said Harding. “This merger reflects our shared belief that we can better honor that commitment by becoming one organization rather than continuing to partner as two separate entities. It’s truly an exciting time for everyone involved.”

Harding will assume the role of Vice President of Benefits and Wellness for Peel & Holland. Kelly and his entire team will integrate into Peel & Holland’s benefits division. The Harding Benefits office will remain in Franklin and will hold a ribbon cutting and open house at the end of October to celebrate the merger and unveil their new name.

Clients of both organizations will experience virtually no changes other than enhanced services and offerings made possible by the merger.
