Chard Snyder and City of Mason Celebrate Official Opening of New Corporate Headquarters

Firm adds strengths in employee health, wellness and financial well-being to Mason entrepreneurial hub

MASON, OhioChard Snyder, a third-party administrator of employee benefit solutions and wholly owned subsidiary of technology-enabled retirement, education and healthcare solutions provider Ascensus, has moved into its new corporate headquarters at 6867 Cintas Boulevard in the City of Mason. The newly constructed 53,000 square-foot facility will house the company’s 170 team members, with enough room to accommodate projected growth.

“Our new headquarters marks a transition to the next era for Chard Snyder,” said Joy Snyder, Chard Snyder’s president and co-founder. “It is a sign of our stability and growth, and shows our clients, partners and the community that we continue to evolve while staying true to our values.”

“The Chard Snyder team’s expertise in employee health and financial well-being will be an incredible asset to the culture of wellness we’ve fostered in Mason,” said City of Mason Mayor Victor Kidd. “The company’s forward-thinking approach to personal health is a perfect fit for our entrepreneurial healthcare-focused hub.”

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held today to officially open the new building. City of Mason dignitaries, representatives from Al. Neyer construction and Chard Snyder executive team members cut the ribbon with many of the company’s employees in attendance.

First announced in February 2017, construction on the new two-story facility began in May 2017. Chard Snyder outgrew its current four-building campus just two miles away in Deerfield Township. When further expansion in that location was not possible, the decision was made to build the new headquarters in the I-71 Innovation Corridor in Mason.

“The new location provides our partners with easy access to our facility, and allows us to be part of a growing local service and technology hub,” Snyder said.

Opening of the new headquarters coincides with Chard Snyder’s 30th year of business. A combined anniversary celebration and new building Open House will take place on June 28 from 3-7 p.m. ET for the company’s business partners.
