“The principals at Argyle Benefits are some of Memphis’ most well-known and respected employee benefits professionals,” said Mark Forrester, CEO of Regions Insurance of Tennessee. “The foundation of their business has been built upon providing expert advice and counsel in a highly personalized manner, and that will not change. I am excited to have individuals of such high integrity associated with our team and serving our clients.”

Argyle partners Tom Merriam and Chris Rogers, and their four experienced associates, will join Johnson as part of the expansion. This veteran team of agents and support professionals will continue their group employee benefits practice serving commercial clients, with a focus on benefit program assessment, creative plan design, program implementation and management.

“For more than 80 years Regions Insurance has provided employee benefit solutions to help our clients meet their business objectives,” said Curren Coco, president and CEO of Regions Insurance Group. “We are pleased to expand our capabilities in Memphis with the addition of Argyle Partners. Argyle is a great example of our long-term commitment to the Tennessee market and its importance to continued expansion in the Southeast.”

Johnson is a founding partner of Argyle Benefits with more than 30 years of insurance industry experience. He is a member of the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans and the National Association of Health Underwriters and is the current president of the Mid South Association of Health Underwriters. He was appointed in 2011 to be a member of the Technical Advisory Group for the Tennessee Insurance Exchange Planning Initiative. He holds the Certified Employee Benefits Specialist and Chartered Life Underwriter professional designations. Johnson is a graduate of Baylor University.
