Shestack to Lead New AmWINS Voluntary Benefits Practice

May 22, 2013

Wholesale insurance broker AmWINS Group Benefits has opened a voluntary benefits division to offer supplemental benefits to benefit professionals and their clients including life, dental, vision, accident, short-term disability, critical illness, cancer and medical gap insurance.

The Voluntary Benefits Practice will specialize in employer groups with 50 to 1,000 lives, and also work with groups managing up to 200,000 lives.

In addition to the new product offerings, AmWINS Group Benefits will also provide ancillary support services with plan administration, customer service, benefits communication, web-based technology, call center support and use of enrollment counselors.

“With more employers moving to high deductible health plans, many of the traditional core benefits are being eliminated,” said Sam Fleet, president of AmWINS Group Benefits in Charlotte, North Carolina. He said these additional benefit options can help employers attract and retain their best talent.

The Voluntary Benefits Practice will be led by Robert Shestack, who joined AmWINS Group Benefits earlier this year. Shestack previously held the positions of managing director and national practice leader at two Marsh & McLennan businesses, Marsh US Consumer and Marsh & McLennan Agency The Trion Group.
