United Benefit Advisors (UBA), the nation’s leading independent employee benefits advisory organization, is pleased to welcome Sullivan Benefits as the latest Partner Firm. Founded in 1998 and headquartered in Worcester, Massachusetts, co-owners Gary R. Goodhile, CLU and Chrystine M.

“Everything we do is for our clients, it’s as simple as that,” says Gary Goodhile, Principal & Co-Owner of Sullivan Benefits.

The Sullivan Benefits team supports their clientele in very unique ways. Understanding each client is different, their approach may vary from client to client, but their main goal is always the same; make the client’s future as clear as possible. Engaging employees in wellness, providing ongoing cost analysis and monitoring, and constantly immersing and educating themselves in the ever-changing compliance landscape are all examples of how Sullivan Benefits provides the value that each of their clients deserve.

“Joining UBA is an exciting opportunity for us to partner with other progressive and like-minded organizations. This alignment will allow us to broaden our expertise to better support our clients through collaboration and shared intellectual capital during unprecedented legislative times,” explains Principal & Co-Owner, Chrystine Heier.

“It gives me great pleasure to welcome Sullivan Benefits to our growing list of superb Partner Firms,” says UBA CEO Les McPhearson. “Their team’s extensive background in employee benefits combined with their philanthropic work and community service, make them an excellent addition to our organization.”

As the newest Partner Firm of UBA, Sullivan Benefits joins a network of more than 130 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.
