Covington, LA (PRWEB) January 18, 2011
Effective February 1, 2011 Ed Miltenberger and Gilsbar are pleased to announce a new strategic partnership designed to help insurance carriers and affinity groups maximize their resources and achieve their financial goals. As part of this initiative, Ed will leave his post at Gilsbar and has formed Carrier and Affinity Group Strategies, LLC. This new entity, under Ed's leadership, will continue to work closely with Gilsbar serving current and future clients, and it also offers Ed the flexibility to participate in new initiatives in the medical and benefits marketplace.
"We live in a radically different environment today" Ed explains, "I have seen first-hand that organizations like Gilsbar, who are able to provide a nimble, well-executed response to market demands, offer a distinct competitive advantage. I want to leverage my knowledge, relationships, and creativity to help clients move towards building similar solutions. Without a doubt, helping to build Gilsbar into a nationally recognized brand in the BPO and affinity space will always be one of my proudest achievements. I look forward to not only continuing to work closely with the Gilsbar family, but also developing new services and adding diverse partners to the mix."
Gilsbar's CEO, Hank Miltenberger, agrees, "Ed is uniquely positioned to bring significant firepower to any company, association, or broker who needs a subject matter expert in the business of growing and moving insurance and non-insurance programs forward. He knows the business, is a reliable and trustworthy resource, and this step allows him the necessary space to broaden his reach for solutions and opportunities. Gilsbar is indebted to his past contributions and looks forward to new opportunities as he helps us pursue our aggressive growth plans."
Carrier and Affinity Group Strategies welcomes inquiries from carriers and affinity groups who are looking to expand their product mix, re-ignite interest in their programs, or explore new distribution channels. Brokers or agents are invited to call as well, as many opportunities can generate fees or commissions.
Ed can be reached at 985-502-1243.
