United Benefit Advisors Welcomes McLaughlin & Smoak Benefits As Newest Partner Firm

United Benefit Advisors (UBA), the nation’s leading independent employee benefits advisory organization, announces McLaughlin & Smoak Benefits as the latest addition to its family of Partner Firms. Headquartered in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, McLaughlin & Smoak Benefits has a dedicated team of compliance, wellness, human resources, and health care consumerism specialists.

“Partnering with UBA will enable our firm to be even more competitive in the marketplace and provide high value to our clients. We are humbled and very excited to be a part of the UBA family,” says Colin Smoak, Principal, McLaughlin & Smoak Benefits.

McLaughlin & Smoak Benefits is literally built around the client. In 2008, the founding Principals, Colin Smoak and Trey McLaughlin, met with 18 clients over an eight-week period to develop what has become their value proposition. In addition, the firm has a client advisory board of directors that meets with agency leadership six times a year to ensure the agency vision and mission matches the expectations of their clients. Emphasis on education at the account and employee levels, HR support, and benefits communications add to the product & process expertise to create a durable and meaningful connection to their clients. Recently, the fifth spoke of their value proposition wheel was added – health care consumerism. A Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) delivers and manages an educational curriculum of eight modules that are all designed to change/improve the health care utilization in an effort to drive costs down. Of course, compliance remains a big part of what is offered as well.

“Educating their clients and their client's employees is emphasized at McLaughlin & Smoak Benefits and I applaud this undertaking. At UBA, we also focus heavily on education so that our Partners can make the best, most informed decisions when it comes to benefits,” says UBA CEO Les McPhearson. “I look forward to the innovative and collaborative efforts that will be shared as I'm sure they will continue to elevate the level of our partnership.”

As the newest Partner Firm of UBA, McLaughlin & Smoak Benefits joins a network of employee benefits advisory firms that serve employers of all sizes across the United States, Canada, and Europe. As a combined group, UBA’s annual employee benefit revenues rank it among the top five employee benefit advisory organizations in the U.S.
