Health Partners America (http://www.healthpartnersamerica.com), a broker support organization that creates software and training for insurance brokers and advisors, announces its new hires of, respectively, Eric Johnson as Regional Sales Developer and Director of Education and Laurie Anderson as Director of Sales Operations.
A recognized leader in the health insurance industry, Eric brings a wealth of experience and leadership to his new role: he has keen eye for analytical detail, having co-founded ComedyCE.com, a continuing education company that makes learning insightful and fun. That same creativity applies to Eric’s work as a former president of the Fort Worth Association of Health Underwriters and a regular contributor to Benefits Selling Magazine and BenefitsPro.com. He is also a two-time recipient of the National Association of Health Underwriters’ William G. Wetzel Award for Excellence in Public Speaking and a national instructor for NAHU’s Consumer Directed Health Care certification course.
“It is an honor to join Health Partners America, which has the entrepreneurial spirit and integrity I respect. The firm’s critical and commercial acclaim in the field of private exchanges and defined contribution plans are a testament to success in the marketplace and respect from clients throughout the United States. I welcome the chance to join this team of distinguished professionals,” says Mr. Johnson.
Like Eric, Laurie Anderson is an accomplished health insurance executive. She has over 30 years of administrative, service and sales expertise with insurers in plan design, costing and performance analysis. Her analytical skills and knowledge are essential for both public and private sector companies, where Laurie delivers a range of benefits. A former Senior Account Executive for Lassiter Ware Insurance, she has an intricate understanding of everything from benefit referrals to enrollment, renewals and presentations.
“Health Partners America reflects my professional ideals, delivering the innovations companies expect and brokers need to gain a competitive advantage. I look forward to working with such an impressive group of executives, who share this commitment on behalf of success and innovation,” says Ms. Anderson.
According to Josh Hilgers, President of Health Partners America: “Eric and Laurie offer unrivaled achievement in their individual specialties, allowing us to further help the companies and organizations we work with. I applaud their distinguished work in the health insurance industry, which further underscores our belief in identifying and retaining the best talent in the industry.”
