Eric is known as a market innovator and disruptor. By founding Risk International Benefits Advisors (RIBA) in 2014, Eric has effectively turned upside down long-held practices for how employers manage and procure employee benefit plans.
A former industry insider, with 30 years of experience in benefits brokerage and consulting, he now focuses much of his time and energy advising employers on lean benefits management techniques to help trim the fat out of redundant, wasteful and underperforming health plans.
Prior to joining Risk International, Eric served in senior management roles at two different brokerage firms where he was responsible for launching a new benefits brokerage business at one and realizing an annual growth rate of 20% over 10 years for another. He began his career at a large national insurance company. Additionally, he has served on national advisory boards for Aetna, United HealthCare, CIGNA and Guardian, as well as regional groups for Medical Mutual, Anthem and Kaiser.
