Benefits Brokerage Shows Continued Growth in Northern California With the Addition of a New Benefits Consultant

IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/22/14 -- Burnham Benefits Insurance Services -- one of the largest employee benefits brokerages in California and one of the few to specialize solely in strategic employee benefits consulting and brokerage services -- welcomes Edward Gow, a benefits consultant joining the team's Northern California office. Gow will play an integral role in growing Burnham Benefits' business in the region by providing valuable insight and consultation to clients as they structure their employee benefit packages.

With roots in Southern California, Burnham Benefits expanded its operations into Northern California in 2013 and has been bolstering their personnel in the past months to support this growth.

"Bringing Edward onto our team further develops our growing staff in Northern California," says Michael Michalski, Burnham's regional president. "Our team will benefit greatly from his experience in the employee benefits industry, specifically his relationships and prior work with local schools in the Bay Area."

Gow is familiar with presenting cost containment options to groups of all sizes. As a result of his diverse experience, Gow is able to provide details on the risks and nuances for many products, offering Burnham's clients the most comprehensive evaluation of their available options. Holding previous positions at Alliant Insurance, Andreini & Company and AFIS Insurance Services, Gow has proven to be a client-centric, strategic consultant. Gow will spend significant time leveraging his relationships with local schools, serving as a resource for them in navigating health care reform. His expertise also includes captive benefits programs, a rising trend in the industry.

"I was drawn to Burnham Benefits' forward-thinking leaders and commitment to investing in resources for its clients," says Gow. "As an established firm, they have figured out what clients want, which translates into a great product and unparalleled service."

Gow received a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from San Francisco State University. He also received the Group Benefits Associate (GBA) designation from the Wharton School and the International Foundation of Employee Benefits. In addition to his professional and educational accomplishments, Gow is a member of the International Society of Certified Employee Benefit Specialists (ISCEBS).
