Pancoast is more than just a brokerage service

Renowned SEC coach Fred Pancoast started Pancoast Benefits in 1985, infusing it with the discipline of an athlete and a soul driven by customer service.

We are far more than a brokerage service. Pancoast helps our client companies lower the cost of benefits and provides services that reduce the time and expense associated with benefit administration.

We serve small independent companies, expanding startups and publicly traded corporations with operations in multiple states. Our dedicated team also serves individuals, helping them navigate the maze of health coverage to find the right policy for them and their families when employer-sponsored coverage is unavailable.

Pancoast handles benefits administration for several large nursing home companies, Lipscomb University, Richards and Southern, Southern Retail Inventory Service, Truxton Trust and Walker Lumber and the Country Music Association, among many other companies and organizations. Additionally, Pancoast Benefits is a proud endorsed partner of the Country Music Association, the Gospel Music Association and the Tennessee Trucking Association.

Our company has grown and today provides clients with industry-leading technology, HR tools and back office support to reduce the time spent on benefits administration. Less time on benefits administration creates more time to achieve corporate objectives.

Fred has always been a people person. A former head football coach at Vanderbilt, he spent 25 years coaching college football, primarily in the SEC, and five years as the head of Human Resources for a 4,000-employee company before starting this business. The company that bears his name continues his commitment to hard work and unmatched service.

Pancoast is in benefits planning and benefits administration for the long haul. Combined with Fred’s founding vision, our years of experience give us the creativity, capacity and compassion to make life easier for each and every client.

Eighty percent, 4 out of every 5, of our clients have been with Pancoast for 10 years or more.

We believe that speaks volumes and reflects the service mindset Fred Pancoast instilled when he founded Pancoast Benefits in 1985.
