Rapidly expanding insurance services firm Patriot Growth Insurance Services has enhanced its footprint in New York by partnering with full-service insurance agency SDL+GHS, which operates out of New York City and Hudson.

Formed in 2018, SDL+GHS emerged from the merger of SDL Brokerage and Group Health Solutions. SDL Brokerage began specializing in commercial insurance in the 1960s, while its offshoot employee benefits division Group Health Solutions came to life in 1996. The two combined six years ago to form a comprehensive business.

Rob Bujan, one of the three principals at SDL+GHS, remarked: “As we continue on this journey of growth and partnerships, there is no better pathway than to join efforts with Patriot. Our culture, values, and commitment to continuous growth align perfectly with Patriot and the larger vision of their leadership.”

The merged firms now offer services ranging from property and casualty insurance, employee benefits, wellness programs, commercial and personal lines, self-funding, to benefits administration, all supported by advanced technologies.

“We are beyond thrilled to welcome the SDL+GHS team to the Patriot family,” Patriot chief acquisition officer Steve Carroll (pictured) commented. “Their culture truly embodies everything that Patriot stands for in terms of having a growth mindset, community engagement, and high ethical values.

“SDL+GHS’s unique culture has led them to produce impressive organic growth, and I know it will only accelerate with the deep resources and support of Patriot.”

Backed by GI Partners and Summit Partners, Patriot was founded in 2019 and is known for its collaborative model. Partnering with employee benefits and property & casualty agencies nationwide, the company employs more than 1,850 people across 194 locations in 27 states.

According to Patriot, its structure delivers resources and strategic support to its agencies while enabling leaders to continue operating with a high degree of independence in their local markets.
