First Commonwealth Insurance Agency Names Brandt Stiggins as Vice President of Benefits Consulting Group
Indiana, PA (August 20) – First Commonwealth Insurance Agency (FCIA) recently named Brandt Stiggins as Vice President of its Benefits Consulting Group. In this capacity, Brandt will be charged with organic growth and retention efforts within the Benefits Consulting Group while establishing and supporting the organization’s initiatives of innovation, independence, and transparency that FCIA brings to the insurance industry.
Brandt joins FCIA from Risk International Benefits Advisors, Inc., where he served as the Director of Client Growth and Development for the past six years. He brings in depth levels of oversight to the Benefits Industry that enable him to counsel employer groups to maximize every dollar spent in their benefits programs. Those experiences align well with FCIA, where the elimination of claim redundancies, duplicative services, and unnecessary fees has created substantial savings for middle and large market employers.
Michael Bartolini, President & CEO of FCIA, indicated that “Brandt’s experience and commitment to his clients mesh well with the culture of FCIA in that we are committed to being on the “client’s side of the table” while delivering transparent fee arrangements to support FCIA’s commitment to never be beholden to any insurance carrier or vendor. I look forward to working with Brandt and our shared interest to appropriately reshape the benefits industry by educating clients how to properly align their Plan Performance with their Corporate Philosophies while, at the same time, fully maximizing their investment.”
Brandt, his wife, and their 6 children live in northeastern Ohio. He will be based out First Commonwealth’s business office at 4650 Hills and Dales Road NW, Suite 300, Canton, OH 44708.
