Practice Leader

Who I Am

I oversee and run the Employee Benefits Practice, which includes Group Health Insurance, Group Life and Disability, Voluntary Benefits and Long-Term Care plans. I began my career in employee benefits in 1989 working for the worldwide benefits consulting firm, Watson Wyatt. Before joining KORE, I worked for:

• Mercer Consulting – National Marketing Director for Managed Time Loss Practice.
• United Healthcare – Senior Sales Executive in New York City Regional Headquarters Office.
• Professional Group Plans – Employee Benefits Leader and Senior Producer.
• Beacon Advisory Service – Senior Vice President – Employee Benefits Practice Leader.

Some of my past clients include Warner-Lambert, BIC Corporation, and UNISYS.

What I Do Here

I work with clients to improve their benefit programs to ensure the best benefit value of each dollar invested. By achieving this balance, my clients offer benefit programs that not only attract and retain the industry’s best workers but provide cost relief from an otherwise escalating and unmanageable cost. I’m an expert on Health Care Reform, ERISA and HIPAA Compliance. As such, I assist my clients in navigating the complex maze of Federal and State regulations with regard to employee benefits.

What I Enjoy

A Cum Laude graduate in English Literature and Communications from Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ. I hold Life and Health Licenses and am an active member of the National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU) and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). My wife, Jayne, and children, Maykla, Kalen, and McKenzie have been long-time residents of Fanwood, NJ. I’m also an avid collector of pop culture memorabilia and antiques.
