Byars|Wright Insurance has launched its new employee benefits department with the acquisition of Decatur-based Business to Business Solutions’ (B2B) employee benefits assets. With this merger, Byars|Wright now has six offices.

“Mergers and acquisitions are key components of our ongoing growth strategy,” said Haig Wright II, president of Byars|Wright. “This one in particular marks an important milestone for our agency, as we are establishing a new department focused solely on employee benefits insurance.”

Renee Wenzler, producer and former COO of B2B, and Ella Blalock Traynom, employee benefits account manager, have joined Byars|Wright, bringing their expertise in employee benefits to the firm.

“I’m excited about this partnership and the potential that it holds for our combined customers,” said Wenzler. “We recognized that pooling our resources and capabilities would enable us to address the customers’ needs for trusted providers of both the employee benefits and property and casualty segments of business insurance.”

Byars|Wright is celebrating its 75th year in business, serving various industries and customers across the Southeast. The company provides commercial and personal insurance through its offices in Jasper, Gardendale, Alabaster, Birmingham, Cullman and Decatur.
