20 young leaders in benefits
For the majority of EBA’s 2017 Rising Stars in Advising, their entire career in benefits has been marked by market uncertainty. They’ve come of age as advisers under Obamacare. As a result, they are nimble, quick-thinking, open to change and see opportunity over adversity. Selected by EBA’s editors from dozens of online applicants, these 20 advisers age 35 and younger (listed in random order) are embracing the upheaval in employee benefits — and taking the uncertainty brought on by a new president who campaigned on repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act — as a chance to improve the field for all involved.
