Partner, Employee Benefits Consulting Practice Leader


In the employee benefits consulting (EBC) practice, we help employers efficiently align their corporate goals with their benefits policies. As the leader of this group, I’m proud of how this service area has grown and reached clients in every industry. We’ve saved our business owners millions of dollars in health benefit plans, 401(k) and retirement benefit plans, and employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs) by acting as their lens into the world of benefits.
