This year’s group of standout advisers ages 35 and younger is taking charge of the employee benefit supply chain with a determination to reduce costs and improve client outcomes. They’re creating employer coalitions. They’re negotiating with stop-loss carriers. They’re streamlining technology. They’re owning employee engagement. And that extends to their internal employees as well. The 2018 Rising Star in Advising — chosen by the EBA editorial team after a month-long online nomination process — are compassionate leaders who practice what they preach, allowing flexible work hours and seamlessly integrating cultures as brokerages merge.
John Sbrocco, Principal Healthcare Strategist at Questige, has received two industry honors for his ability to create and deliver high-risk management and cost-saving strategies to clients. The Association for Insurance Leadership presented the 2018 NextGeneration Award to Sbrocco earlier this year, shortly followed by being dubbed 2018’s Rising Star by the Employee Benefits Association.
Questige is proud to announce and welcome Tom Emerick as a new health care advisor. Emerick brings a wealth of knowledge to new and existing clients as the top consultant for Burger King, British Petroleum and Walmart. His first project will reveal cost containment insights, strategies and case studies for an upcoming webinar “How to Buy Benefits & Build a Strategy like Walmart” on May 15, 2018, at 11:00 AM ET.

“By focusing on a strategy that drives immediate impact to the supply chain, it allows us to produce negative trend for clients,” Sbrocco says. “Our top goal is for them to pay less now than they did five years ago.”
