I am incredibly humbled to have been selected as one of Employee Benefit Adviser‘s 10 Rising Stars in Advising. Those who know me well know how much time and energy I put into this business (probably a little too much at times). It is extremely rewarding to be recognized by your peers like this. Below is an excerpt from the article. Here is a link to the article and the entire issue.
The face of benefits advising is not the same. The volatile economy, the changing landscape of health care reform and the ever-increasing role of technology are serving up unprecedented challenges.
On the cusp of this change is a new crop of advisers under age 42 who are ready to take over from retiring baby boomers. They grew up with technology and never knew the business the way the “old-timers” did. They are eager and enthusiastic. They are the future.
EBA searched far and wide to find 10 “Rising Stars in Advising” who are making a name for themselves and will lead the next generation of advisers. We’re delighted to introduce them.
Congratulations to those who were similarly recognized. We all have a lot of work to do in coming years.
