Former Willis Towers Watson National Practice Leader brings more than 20 years of voluntary benefits distribution experience to Berkshire Hathaway carrier.
SPRINGFIELD, MASS. (Feb. 1, 2023) –‑ Wellfleet, a Berkshire Hathaway health and accident insurance company, is excited to announce the hiring of voluntary benefits industry veteran Mark Hebert. Hebert steps in as Head of Distribution to lead sales and distribution efforts for Wellfleet’s Workplace Benefits line of business.
Starting with his first role as an Army officer, Hebert’s career reflects a history of leadership and increased responsibility in mission-critical growth businesses in both the carrier and broker spaces. Following 15 successful years with ING/Voya, he most recently transitioned to consulting with Willis Towers Watson (WTW) before quickly rising to National Practice Leader for Voluntary Benefits.
In his leadership role at WTW, Hebert supported both mid- and large-market consulting teams and clients to develop and implement employee value-focused voluntary benefit strategies. It’s this broad experience combined with proven sales success that was most appealing to Wellfleet’s leadership team.
“We are proud to bring on a person in Mark Hebert with great character, and a long history of success in workplace benefits,” said Drew DiGiorgio, Wellfleet’s President & CEO. “I am eager to see all we can achieve together.”
In his new role, Hebert is responsible for achieving sales goals through effective alignment and execution across the spectrum of Wellfleet’s distribution channels and both internal and external partners.
“Mark has proven a track record of success and leadership responsibilities in both carrier and broker environments,” said James Ocampo, Executive Vice President at Wellfleet and head of its Workplace Benefits division. “He’s a great fit with our culture, and we’re excited to have him lead our distribution efforts as we look to supercharge growth in the middle and large markets over the next few years.”
Hebert will acquire Wellfleet’s Core Market, National Accounts, and Emerging Market sales teams.
“Imagine an employee benefits carrier with a single system to manage a client’s data from proposal to claim, surrounded by a passionate, customer-focused team, owned by an A++ A.M. Best-rated company,” said Mark Hebert. “The potential here is almost limitless—when I saw it, I knew Wellfleet could reset the standard for employee benefits delivery, and I wanted to be a part of it.”
