Only the best brokers can be considered true partners of their clients — and Tara Huffington is one of the best.

One client commended Huffington’s expertise as a trusted colleague: “Tara has been an amazing partner with us and has helped us navigate a very challenging benefits market. She is very much an extension of our team and really understands our organization well, so her work compliments almost everything we do.”

Another client faced a challenge with a large acquisition this year.

Huffington supported the inclusion of the new employees, which happened during a transition time when other key employees were lost due to the pandemic. The client needed to shift gears to focus on controlling health care costs, and Huffington helped to support this goal by securing numerous competitive bids.

In the end, she achieved a 6% total program savings while simultaneously minimizing the disruption to the employees. She led the communications efforts about the new benefits package to the over 8,200 employees.

The client said, “At the outset, she really took the time to understand what our overall goals were and what could be sensitive to our organization before mapping out possible options. She took this to another level by helping us map out what this would look like for our associates and what communications we would need to plan for.”
