Navacord Corp., is pleased to announce their most recent partnership with CHS Benefits Consulting Group Inc., effective July 1, 2022.
Headquartered in Edmonton, Alberta, the benefits consulting firm is a tight-knit, family-owned organization that understands the importance of nurturing roots in their local communities. Since they were founded nearly 30 years ago, by Carl Shields who now runs operations with his children, Graham and Leslie, CHS has successfully built long-term relationships with many of their clients through crafting bespoke group benefits plans.
“We are excited to join Navacord and dive into an unbeatable growth opportunity that will bring CHS to a greater level of industry magnitude and market access for our clients,” says Carl Shields, Founder and President, CHS.
“Collaborating with Navacord will be an incredible milestone for CHS and we look forward to their support of our continued success,” adds Graham Shields, Partner, CHS.
Often described as the kind of brokerage that makes friends with their clients, CHS takes immense pride in their community-first, hands-on approach to providing solutions backed by knowledge and care.
“Navacord and CHS coming together perfectly exemplifies what Navacord is all about: protecting and enhancing the offerings of local, entrepreneurial brokerages across Canada and supporting them with national strength,” says T. Marshall Sadd, Executive Chairman, Navacord. “We are excited to welcome CHS into Navacord.”
CHS will be supported by fellow Edmonton-based Navacord Broker Partner, Vanta Benefits.
