Compass Benefit Advisors, LLC Joins OneDigital
ATLANTA, GA – June 8, 2021 – OneDigital, the nation's leading strategic advisory firm focused on delivering health, retirement/wealth, and HR solutions for employers of all sizes, has acquired Compass Benefit Advisors LLC.
Located in Meridian, Idaho, Compass Benefit Advisors works as one with its clients to provide comprehensive benefit solutions. The firm specializes in leveraging integrated technology systems to improve HR efficiencies.
I've had the distinct pleasure of getting to know the Compass Benefits team over a gazillion Zoom calls during the Pandemic. From our initial call until they officially joined the team on March 1st, it was evident that their approach to consulting and servicing clients and their dedication to their team was an exact match for OneDigital's philosophy and culture. When engaging with firms about joining the OneDigital family, it always starts with the people. I couldn't be more excited to work with this incredible team of professionals, and I am thrilled to expand our region's footprint into Idaho under their leadership.

Melinda McDaniel, Partner for Compass Benefit Advisors, commented: "Joining a national organization with an established market presence elevates our depth of services and solutions while maintaining the local, close-knit relationships that our clients appreciate. My partners, Susie Brocke and Robert Tierney and I truly believe we have found a like-minded partner that equally prioritizes the success of its clients and team members.”
