“I was focused intensely on choosing the firm that offered strong leadership and business management; provided additional services that we lacked; ensured that my partners and employees were highly valued and able to grow professionally; and would do everything within their power to deliver the same level of consultative, clinical, compassionate and professional service to the clients that were so dear to us. PSA met all of those criteria and much more.”
Aaron Davis, Former CEO, NextLogical
PSA has grown by combining with dozens of privately held brokerages over the years, and we continue to seek out premier agencies whose leadership has built a reputation based on sound business ethics and client service. If this sounds like you, we’d love to connect.

What Our Partners Think Of Us
I was focused intensely on choosing the firm that offered strong leadership and business management; provided additional services that we lacked; ensured that my partners and employees were highly valued and able to grow professionally; and would do everything within their power to deliver the same level of consultative, clinical, compassionate and professional service to the clients that were so dear to us. PSA met all of those criteria and much more. From the very beginning, we were able to expand our capabilities dramatically. We also realized and enjoyed the incredible leverage and influence that came with being part of one of the largest employee benefits firms in the region. We emerged a much stronger and more capable team able to not only survive the ever-increasing pressure to evolve and innovate but to thrive and excel through it. Similarly, PSA embraced our focus on data-driven clinical interventions, health risk management, creative wellness plan designs, and unique brand of client consultation. Together, we created an approach, model and deliverables that, arguably, represent the strongest competitive advantage in the market.
PSA has a highly-experienced and respected professional staff, and a strong leadership team. We share a common philosophy about client service and commitment to being on the forefront of bringing clients creative solutions for their benefit plans. I feel by merging my firm with PSA, it has provided access to a greater depth of resources and services to benefit HPHQ clients.
We couldn’t be more impressed with the way in which this merger has gone. To onboard an entire company virtually is not an easy task, but through PSA’s forward-thinking approach to technology and fearless leadership, we’ve had a smooth transition. We’re proud to now be a part of PSA’s story, bringing together two long-standing institutions in the Baltimore market, and look forward to continued success for years to come.
