The business has always been a passion to Bill Brown. At age 13, he started attending CEO Club meetings with his father where he was exposed to executives from companies of all sizes and types. It was here that he saw the positive impact a business can have on its community. That early exposure to the business world planted seeds that have helped him reap financial growth and build dynamic corporate cultures in the employee benefits and HR solutions market.
Today he is a President of Ardent Solutions, LLC, an Alera Group company, and has helped the business grow into one of the region’s largest independent employee benefits consulting firms. He is involved in all aspects of marketing, negotiation, compliance, design, and financial analysis of benefit programs.
In 2016, Bill was on the steering committee that helped join 23 other insurance and financial services companies across the U.S. to form Alera Group, now the seventh-largest independent employee benefits, property/casualty, risk management and wealth management firm in the U.S. Following the launch of the company in January of 2017 Bill was elected to serve on the Alera’s Board of Directors by the other founding partners.
