Branch Benefits Consultants Acquires The Conley Financial Group

Two experienced, professional insurance companies are united with the goal of serving their community.

LAS VEGAS, NV, UNITED STATES, September 2, 2021 / — Branch Benefits Consultants (BBC) has acquired The Conley Financial Group, headed by Kathy Conley-Jones, an experienced broker and respected member of the U.S. Bank Women in Leadership Organization and the National Organization of Women Business Owners. This historic partnership aims to offer more opportunities for clients as well as improved long- term growth for both agencies.

The partnership has been in the making for quite some time, as BBC CEO Quincy Branch explains. “This acquisition partnership with The Conley Financial Group is historic in meaning and has been in the works for over 15 years now. Kathy has built a tremendous reputation in the industry and St. Louis area. We are excited about what we can bring to the table to help grow what she has built and give back to the community that means so much to her.”

Both parties are excited about the tremendous
opportunities to provide excellent services to
minority businesses within their communities. Kathy Conley-Jones has a particular enthusiasm for the partnership. “There is one African proverb that sums up what our deal means to me and hopefully to all : If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together!”

Kathy also believes that Change is what this acquisition means! “When we cemented this partnership, my mind traveled to the words of Maya Angelou and Amanda Gorman when they wrote ‘we will RISE as we step out of the shade … Aflame and unafraid!’ When two individuals from different generations look out and realize their journey is coming into view…they don’t just say ‘yes we can’… they say ‘yes, we must!’ Our partnership will begin to change not only the view of non minority citizens about our capabilities but of African Americans. We are a professional service firm that can provide employee benefits, insurance and financial service consulting for public, private governmental and small businesses.”

Branch Benefits Consultants is proud to announce the acquisition of The Conley Financial Group. These two agencies coming together is a historic moment and will impact communities for the future.

With decades of combined experience between the two organizations, the new partnership is committed to ‘diversity, equity, and inclusion’ in their nationwide services.

Celebrating the Legacy of Juneteenth!

Juneteenth, an annual holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the United States, has been celebrated by African-Americans since the late 1800s. On June 17, 2021, it became the 11th holiday recognized by the federal government.  On June 19, 1865, a Union General rode into Galveston, Texas to announce that the Civil War had ended, and slaves had been freed.

Juneteenth marks a date of major significance in American history and shows us that freedom and racial equality have always been a hard-fought battle for black Americans – a battle that continues to this day. The historical legacy of Juneteenth shows the value of never giving up hope in uncertain times. The National Museum of African American History and Culture is a community space where this spirit of hope lives on.

There are many ways you can observe and celebrate this holiday, from supporting black businesses to educating yourself, to using your voice to spread love. You can also take time to share the stories of black people you admire, and learn about prominent black figures in American history.

To honor the holiday, we encourage you to take time to reflect, learn and educate yourself.
