TRI-AD and Navia Benefit Solutions Announce New Partnership

TRI-AD Actuaries LLC (TRI-AD), a trusted provider of health and wealth benefits administration solutions for nearly 50 years, announces its partnership and merger with Navia Benefit Solutions, a nationwide consumer-directed benefits provider of health, life, and compliance solutions.

The partnership will leverage TRI-AD’s expertise in the Retirement and Ben Admin markets alongside Navia’s reputation for innovative benefit solutions and quality customer service, allowing for a best-in-class health and wealth experience for our combined client base. 

“Thad and I spent the bulk of our careers working for and leading businesses that our fathers started. Carrying those legacies forward through high-touch service, accountability, and long-term relationships with our associates and customers was critical,” said Hilarie Aitken, CEO of Navia. “Our cultures, goals, and vision for the future couldn’t be more perfectly aligned. We welcome the TRI-AD team to our family, and we are proud to be a new member of theirs.”

As a subsidiary of Navia Benefit Solutions, TRI-AD employees will become members of the Navia family through the partnership and will continue to serve TRI-AD clients without disruption or interruption. Thad Hamilton, TRI-AD’s President and CEO will continue with the combined organization during the transition. “Our companies are culturally compatible and have grown from similar foundations. Hilarie and I have known each other for a long time and have a tremendous amount of mutual trust and respect. We share similar visions for the future, and we are incredibly excited to bring our teams together. This partnership is a great fit for both organizations and for the market in general. We believe we have a truly innovative solution for mid-market customers seeking high-touch, cutting-edge health and wealth benefits solutions,” said Thad.
