MORE THAN JUST BUSINESS

Great Clients
Awesome Reviews

“We Love Mike. He’s done an amazing job transforming our benefits, costs, and is always available to our employees when they need help. Our costs have also dropped by over 30%.  With 200 employees every dollar counts.  We’ve been able to keep our employee costs the same for the last five years because of working with Mike.”

Barbie Kennedy, HR Director

Indoor Media

“Mike is not a typical broker.  We had years of traditionally bad broker advice about discounts, rebates, and carrier relationships.  Our costs are lower in 2020 than they were in 2015 because we took deliberate actions to challenge the status quo.  It’s been a long journey as change doesn’t happen overnight.  As a result, our employees pay considerably less for benefits than our competitors and they keep more of their money when they use their benefits because of smart shopper options.”

Brent Herbert, Chief People Officer

Dupre Logistics

“This is our second year working with Mike.  When we first started to discuss our benefits he brought to us options that produced savings over 50% of our then current costs.  We opted for a gentle nudge to our medical plan and saved just over 40%.  We opted to give some of the savings to our employees.  With employee point-in-time education we’ve been able to lower our costs by an additional 10% this renewal and our employees absolutely love the savings.”
