We are a personable group of service-oriented, experienced professionals with a focus on communication and collaboration. At our core, we are problem-solvers seeking innovative ideas to meet your unique employee benefits needs.
Preferred Partners was founded by a former executive of several major insurance carriers. As a result, we offer a deep understanding of the internal finances and operations of health plans, including the subtle nuances of health care costs, trends and products. This knowledge gives us an edge in communicating and negotiating with carriers, helping us to design packages that maximize the dollars you spend on health care.

Not only do our founding partners boast over 50 years of combined relevant experience, their backgrounds offer a unique perspective. One spent nearly 20 years in management and leadership positions for some of the nation’s largest insurance carriers. The other is a human resources and benefits executive with a career spanning over three decades in the health care industry. This combination translates to a team with:
Strong relationships to leverage in your favor
Sensitivity to broad human resources issues as they impact benefits
In-depth insights into the finances and operations of health plans—key to negotiating the best possible rates for you and designing custom benefit programs
No two clients are alike, and half the fun is exploring the different avenues your company can take to meet its unique needs and challenges.
