GCD Insurance Consultants Is the Latest Partner Firm To Join United Benefit Advisors

Tampa-Based Agency Joins Global Network of Independent Employee Benefits Advisory Firms

Indianapolis, Ind. – February 17, 2015 – United Benefit Advisors (UBA), the nation’s leading independent employee benefits advisory organization, is pleased to welcome GCD Insurance Consultants as its newest Partner Firm. Headquartered in Tampa, Florida, GCD specializes in creating benefits programs that will attract and retain employees while maintaining a keen eye on the bottom line. This is accomplished with a thorough, step-by-step process of planning, analysis, communication, implementation, and monitoring. It is their objective to provide value to their clients throughout the year, not just at renewal time.

GCD Insurance Consultants consists of three partners: Steve Gionis, Rich Caulley and Josh Dillinger. The firm is somewhat unique in that all of the principals spent their early careers as insurance carrier executives. This experience has proven to be invaluable when it comes to carrier negotiations and issue resolution.

“We are very excited to join United Benefits Advisors and look forward to bringing additional resources to our clients,” said Steve Gionis of GCD Insurance Consultants. “The UBA vendor and agency affiliations allow us to compete with national agencies without losing the local service that our clients deserve.”

GCD’s associates are consultative in nature and work hard to understand client’s goals and objectives, thus allowing them to develop benefits programs that meet each organization’s specific needs. However, what truly sets the agency apart is that they deliver a “high-touch” service model, acting as an extension of an organization’s human resources department.

“The vast amount of experience of the principals at GCD Insurance Consultants, combined with the customer focus of its employees, makes them an outstanding addition to UBA's family of Partner Firms,” said UBA CEO Les McPhearson. “Our combined wealth of knowledge in the insurance benefits industry will further UBA's collaborative efforts within our entire range of Partner Firms and their clientele, while GCD Insurance Consultants is now able to tap into the significant Partner resources of UBA.”

As the newest Partner of UBA, GCD Insurance Consultants joins a network of more than 130 employee benefits advisory firms that serve employers of all sizes across the United States, Canada, and Europe. As a combined group, UBA’s annual employee benefit revenues rank it among the top five employee benefit advisory organizations in the U.S.

The firm offers a broad base of knowledge in the areas of employee benefits, payroll and human resources.
