EPIC Insurance Brokers and Consultants, a retail property, casualty insurance brokerage and employee benefits consultant, announced today that it is continuing to expand its employee benefits resources with the addition of a new Pharmacy Practice Leader, Bob Eisendrath. EPIC is also pleased to announce that it has promoted Craig Hasday to President and National Employee Benefits Practice Leader and Cindy Santangelo to National Voluntary Benefits Practice Leader.
Bob Eisendrath brings a strong background in pharmacy benefit management, with experience both in sales and national account management. He spent 20 years with CVS Caremark, where he was most recently Area Vice President for Coalition Business.
“The addition of Bob will further strengthen our Pharmacy consulting practice as he leads the team through the rapidly changing legislative and therapeutic landscape, while our clients grapple with increasing pharmacy prices – one of the most problematic components of escalating cost,” said Craig Hasday, National Employee Benefits Practice Leader.
Said Steve Denton, President, EPIC Holdings, “For the past eighteen months, Craig has led our National Employee Benefits Operations Board. In that role, Craig has worked closely with the geographic employee benefits leaders and has done an incredible job bringing our national teams together.”
During this time, EPIC has seen increased communication and enhancements across the board in service offerings for its clients. Further, EPIC has seen great improvement in revenue growth, profitability, and integration of its vast employee benefits platform. Employee Benefits revenue is over $170 million, which represents over 20% of our retail revenue.
Promoting Cindy Santangelo to a national role as lead of our Voluntary Benefits practice highlights our growing focus on the changing workplace. Santangelo has been with EPIC for 12 years and spent the past 5 years building and growing the Voluntary Benefits practice within our national Employee Benefits platform. She brings a wealth of knowledge to her role in employee-paid worksite benefits consulting as she fully understands how to create a customized program to meet individualized needs.
“We are fortunate to have someone with her expertise on our team to support our clients and other EPIC consultants,” said John Gaffney, VP. National Employee Benefits Operations.
