Lawley Insurance's employee benefits division is starting a new "private client group" that will focus on providing products and services to meet the needs of business owners, executives and professionals.
The Executive Benefits-Private Client Group will target sales of life and disability insurance to help business owners and executives with business succession and retirement planning needs. The group will also help with long-term care insurance, estate planning, executive and deferred compensation programs, and fixed and immediate annuities.
"We understand select business owners and executives require a different set of products, services and solutions for their individual needs," Lawley Benefits Group Partner James Rehak Jr. said in a news release.
The new division will serve clients in all 10 Lawley offices in New York and New Jersey, and is led by industry veterans Robert DiGiore and Tom Zugger, who are specialists in the fields the group will target.
Founded in 2000, Lawley Benefits provides employee benefits consulting services, helping employers with medical plans, drug coverage, group benefits, claims analysis, funding, wellness programs, third-party administration, voluntary benefits and retirement plans.
Parent Lawley Insurance is a full-service broker with offices in Amherst, Batavia, Fredonia and Rochester, as well as downstate and in two New Jersey communities. It was founded in 1955, and is now the 69th largest broker in the country.
