Scott will also sit on SIB’s executive committee.
“We are very fortunate to have both Adam and Scott join the SIB team. Scott will bring a tremendous amount of skill and experience to what is a growing business segment at SIB. Additionally, it has been great to get familiar with Adam and his business. He is a great fit with our high touch, client oriented/sales minded culture” said Ted Puccini, SIB’s CEO and President.
“I am very excited to officially join my long-time friend and business colleague Adam Lewis and the team at MultiCare” said Scott Studley. “Adam is an incredibly knowledgeable benefits consultant who helped change a sleeping benefits industry that needed an innovative overhaul in the early 1990s.
