Formerly S.S. Nesbitt Rebranding FAQ

Valent Group, a Division of EBSCO Industries, Wants Clients to “Experience the Difference”

EBSCO Industries risk consulting and insurance division has a new name, Valent Group (formerly S.S. Nesbitt), and a renewed promise that its clients will “Experience the Difference” in working with a partner constantly striving to effect positive outcomes.

“We’re excited about our new firm name, Valent Group,” says President Paul Barber. “Great companies are built by great teams, and our team is committed to caring for and serving our customers while caring for and supporting each other. We’re positioned now, better than ever before, to deliver what we know makes our firm extra special: providing a Fortune 1000 experience for the middle market.”

Valent Group, in delivering risk consulting for businessesemployer benefit groups and individuals across Alabama and nationwide, stays true to its Core Values: passion, attitude, curiosity and team. It’s a culture based on the desire for excellence.

But while lots of companies have mission statements, Valent Group adds some serious experience to the mix — a group of consultants with expertise working with large, multinational businesses; publicly traded companies; specialty industries; and in-house services such as Valent Group’s claims advocacy, loss control analysis, legal and human resource compliance, data analysis and wellness consulting.

They bring knowledge, commitment and collaboration to every client experience. It’s a combination that makes a difference.

“EBSCO’s legacy has been one of putting our customers first by providing a differentiated customer experience. Valent Group continues that tradition by focusing on the needs of its clients,” says David Walker, CEO of EBSCO Industries. “Their collaborative, consultative approach and commitment to the businesses and individuals they serve leads to positive outcomes. We are proud to have Valent Group, and the clients they serve, as part of the EBSCO family.”

The Valent Group team successfully brings this experience, which is typically reserved for the largest of companies, to a middle market that is all too often not receiving the level of risk consulting it should. This same level of customer service is also offered to individuals seeking a personal insurance partner.
