We promise to always tailor our services around the specific needs of our clients, not the other way around.

Brad Johnson

Agency President

Brad is not your typical benefits professional. He has the unique ability to make employee benefits interesting; providing an understandable review of your options, in simple, easy-to-follow terms. By doing so, he ensures everyone understands the key issues and makes informed decisions. Brad’s insights are a result of his 25+ year career working with benefits; having served as a national accounts underwriter, benefit analyst, researcher, large group consultant, and college lecturer. He founded Benefit Staff, now part of AssuredPartners, to provide the expertise of large consulting firms, including access to all markets. Brad is a teacher at heart. Whether he’s working one-on-one with a member of your team, or leading a seminar for 1,000 people, he conveys valuable information in an easy-to-understand, enjoyable fashion.
