NEW YORK, N.Y., August 4, 2011 — The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America (Guardian), one of the largest mutual life insurers and a leading provider of employee benefits, was named Strategic Partner of the Year for 2010 by United Benefit Advisors (UBA), one of the nation’s largest employee benefit advisory organizations.
“This Strategic Partner Award is a fitting tribute to Guardian’s long standing commitment to UBA, which has been invaluable in educating our members on the group benefits business. Our relationship with Guardian has evolved from strong bonds with our local offices to a national alliance that delivers outside-the-box solutions that meet our client’s needs,” said UBA Board Member, Andrea Kinkade, of Kaminsky & Associates Inc., in Maumee, Ohio.
UBA is a member-owned alliance of more than 140 independent benefit advisory firms. These firms are selected for this exclusive membership based on their integrity, financial achievements and expertise in employee benefits. UBA hosts member conferences where members share wisdom and best practices, and improve their knowledge of employee benefits. In 2010, Guardian provided educational support to UBA member firms for new hire training. The company redesigned instructional materials and created new group benefits courses for UBA trainees.
“Guardian has firmly embraced UBA’s mission since becoming a strategic partner in 2004, building relationships with members and strengthening their competitive ability while serving the best interests of employers and employees,” said Clancy Merrill, National Director of Small Group Sales for Guardian’s Group Insurance division.
