With roots going back to 1932, Stanley, Hunt, DuPree & Rhine (SHDR) was established as the result of the merger of two regional employee benefit consulting firms: W.E. Stanley & Company of Greensboro, North Carolina, and Hunt, DuPree, Rhine & Associates of Greenville, South Carolina.
SHDR became a subsidiary of Branch Banking & Trust (BB&T) in 1998. In 2010, the two companies merged and SHDR became an operating division of BB&T. Serving consumers and businesses since 1872, BB&T is one of America's largest financial holding companies. Together with its affiliated companies, BB&T offers a full range of financial products and services.
The combination of SHDR, with its tradition of exceptional client service and industry expertise, and BB&T, with broad corporate resources and state-of-the-art technology, allows SHDR to provide client companies with maximum flexibility, selection and customization of employee benefit solutions.
Today, SHDR is a division of BB&T Insurance, Inc., a subsidiary of BB&T, and a premier, single-source provider of employee benefit consulting, administration and record-keeping services. We work with businesses of all sizes throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic, as well as Texas, New Mexico and Idaho.
