Marsh McLennan Agency Broker Anthony Colantino Recognized as a 2022 Employee Benefits Power Broker
Anthony Colantino, Vice President – Employee Health & Benefits, Marsh McLennan Agency
A new client switched its business to Anthony Colantino this year because it was looking for a proactive partner who is a subject matter expert, someone to advise on trends and to find creative solutions.
The client found that partner in Colantino.
“As a smaller company, every dollar counts. He was able to save us $1.7 million while still improving the benefits. In every category, our rates went down at open enrollment and our employees were pleased.”
Another of Colantino’s new clients was fully insured through one carrier and had been for several years. As a result, the costs had become inflated over time and the prior broker hadn’t made recommendations for changes to the plan.
When Colantino took over, he and his team shopped every line of coverage to find the best rates available. Moving the plan to a new provider both saved the client money and expanded the benefits offerings with an increased HSA contribution for its employees.
Another client was looking for innovative ways to enhance itsemployee benefits package, and Colantino did not disappoint.
The client commented, “Anthony came to the table with new ideas and tools to help us make decisions regarding our new benefits plan, one of which was the ICAF report. He helped us navigate through our renewal and negotiated on our behalf to get us the best competitive pricing.”
