Zenith American Solutions

Zenith American Solutions was formed when Water Street merged its company, American Benefit Plan Administrators, with Zenith Administrators in 2011.  It was a transformational merger that created one of the nation’s leading third-party administrators for Taft-Hartley trust funds. With 33 offices across the country, Zenith American manages benefit plans as a third-party benefits administrator serving more than 700,000 health plan members and dependents, and over 800,000 retirement plan participants for Taft-Hartley trust funds, trade associations, government entities and corporate employers.  Water Street recently facilitated Zenith American’s acquisition of Insurance Programmers, Inc. to further expand the company’s national presence and strong base of clients.   Our team is continuing to work with management to pursue targeted acquisitions that build Zenith American into a premier national service provider.
