Cobbs Allen is pleased to announce its further expansion with a new office in Columbus, OH. The new office will be the company’s seventh location and will be led by Ted Allen and Sean Cogan. This expansion represents the continued success of the firm. Similar to its other locations, Cobbs Allen Columbus will utilize the proprietary guideline process to help organizations lower their costs while introducing more risk-based decision-making alternatives.

“The decision to open a location in Columbus was not centered around expanding for the sake of geography,” said Grantland Rice IV, Cobbs Allen COO.  “We chose Columbus because we found quality leadership in Ted and Sean who will help build the office around our niche practice groups.”
