Dublin, Ohio (PRWEB) June 15, 2016
Everhart Advisors, a Dublin, Ohio, retirement plan advisory firm, has acquired the assets of McGohan Brabender Financial (“MBF”) of Dayton, Ohio. McGohan Brabender Financial was an affiliate company of McGohan Brabender, one of the largest independent health insurance brokers in Ohio. The acquisition is the first of its kind for Everhart Advisors and will result in a 25 percent increase in size. MBF has consulted on approximately $310 million of retirement plan assets, and managed nearly $35 million for individuals and families.
“When considering potential acquisitions, it was important to find a firm that shared our values, philosophy and personalized approach to working with our clients,” explained Scott Everhart, President of Everhart Advisors. “The belief that this was the right fit was a mutual one. We are excited for the opportunity to expand our presence in the Dayton area.”
MBF’s five employees have all been retained and are now operating Everhart Advisors’ Dayton location. Lisa Block, the former President of MBF, is leading the Dayton team.
“This is an important step for our clients and our firm. We will be able to offer our clients continuity of service with the added benefit of new areas of expertise,” said Block. “Among other enhancements, Everhart Advisors has a team of Accredited Investment Fiduciaries (AIF®), Certified Financial Planners (CFP®) and an in-house attorney.”
