Zenith American Solutions

Zenith’s partnership with Water Street began in 2008 when it was a business division of HealthPlan Holdings.  Over the next nine years, Water Street transformed Zenith into a standalone company and recognized industry leader.  Working with leadership, we completed five acquisitions, including an industry-leading merger, to expand Zenith’s client base and national footprint.  We invested in a state-of-the-art information technology platform.  We supported the company’s development of six new products to enhance its customer offering.  During our nine-year collaboration, Zenith more than doubled its customer base and tripled its employee base.  When we divested Zenith to its new owner in 2017, the company had grown to become the nation’s largest independent third-party administrator of health and other benefits to Taft-Hartley trust funds.
