In December 2013, Hodges-Mace received a significant investment from Stone Point Capital and Dowling Capital Partners to support management’s growth and service strategy, including strategic acquisitions and expansion of the company’s benefit delivery offerings.
“While we have historically expanded our office space to accommodate organic growth, the bulk of the recent office expansion will be used for our two recently completed acquisitions,” said Ron Shah, chief financial officer – Hodges-Mace. He added, “The Lakeside Office Park is a great location for our employees, and we were fortunate to be able to negotiate the lease and remodel the suite within a tight timeframe in advance of our busy season.”
“This is the fourth expansion that I have worked on for Hodges-Mace, so I understand the company’s business objectives,” said Bo Keatley, vice president – Cresa Atlanta. He stated, “We have timed the current expansion and upgrade of the existing space to avoid the busy end of the year enrollment period.” He added, “It’s great to work on behalf of very wonderful people doing exciting things with their company. It makes what we do all the more enjoyable.”
