Minneapolis, Minnesota (PRWEB) October 27, 2012
IHC Health Solutions announced today the formation of a new business unit of dental sales professionals. This action represents a renewed focus on the dental insurance market.
Chris Baldwin will lead the dental sales unit. As vice president of ancillary brokerage, he will strengthen and develop relationships with general agents, brokers and strategic partners.
“The success of this business line will come from balanced pricing, competitive products and world-class broker and members services. IHC has all the tools to get it done,” said Baldwin, who brings more than 25 years of dental insurance experience to IHC. He most recently served as the chief sales officer with Securian Dental Plans.
Joining Baldwin in this new sales venture are two regional sales directors—Doug Cranshaw and Julie Kloncz. Both have experience in the dental insurance market through Securian and other dental carriers and administrators.
Baldwin and his team will join the IHC Health Solutions office in Minneapolis. They will work closely with the vice president of dental and vision, Greg Olund, and the senior vice president of sales and marketing, Dave Sipprell.
“We are excited to grow our individual and group dental business, which will be a core product going forward at IHC Health Solutions,” Sipprell said.
