What Our Clients Say

We’ll let our clients speak for us.

We have had Burnham as our benefits broker for over 10 years and we cannot say enough good things about them. Debra is a true benefits partner and always goes out of her way to help with our unique needs. When we have a compliance question, Burnham's knowledge and expertise has been critical in helping us to make the right choices. We strive to offer our employees creative benefit options that will best meet their needs and Debra and the Burnham team have come alongside to put together the best options possible.

Karyn Johnson, Director, Human Resources, Saddleback Church

“Burnham makes benefits possible! Diane and the team have provided step-by-step support, from choosing options to launching and ongoing maintenance.  They are an extension of our team, and care about our business and people as if they were one of us!”

Brenna Jones, Director, Human Resources & Training, Dry Bar


“Burnham Benefits excels at problem solving and finding the best fit for our needs. We have unique requirements in various states, and Burnham consistently proposes creative solutions that maximize value for the employees, while being cognizant of our bottom line. Burnham is definitely a partner we value for our employee benefit program!”

Jessica Velazquez, Corporate Human Resources Manager SP Americas, Swissport


“On behalf of the Edelbrock company, it has been a pleasure to work with you and your team at Burnham Benefits. Your team’s responsiveness, ideas and implementation are far beyond industry norms. It’s a pleasure to work with a firm that not only understands and accommodates our business needs, but also adds value through their ideas and services. We are delighted with Burnham Benefits and look forward to continuing this mutually beneficial relationship."

Marcelo Yelin, Human Resources Manager, Edelbrock LLC


“I’m so glad that Brenda and Burnham run interference for us in this arena (health care reform). There is so much to know and then it changes almost daily!”

Suzan Attaway, Inland Empire United Way


“Just wanted to comment on how pleased Community Service Programs is with our decision to use Burnham Benefits for our insurance benefits services. You always seem to be a couple of steps ahead of the curve on anticipating what information and services we need. You are so responsive to any requests for information and the information is complete and very comprehensible. Thanks for all of the above.”

Margot R. Carlson, Executive Director, Community Service Programs


“Ann and her communications team worked diligently to develop and deliver employee communications that thoroughly provided pertinent information in a way that fit the cultural style of my organization. Working with Ann and her team provided me with peace of mind that we would get a high quality product. It was always a pleasure to work with them.”

CJ Gregorios, Former Benefits Administrator, THINK Together


“In my many years as an Account Manager working with clients and their brokers, I have never met a firm as thorough and dedicated as my Burnham team. They are not afraid to take the reins and mix things up. But, in the same respect, they carefully listen and go in the direction which will best suit their clients. They do extraordinary research on carriers and the collaboration with the systems which administer these benefits. They are the type of broker that follows through on their promises and gets better results than expected. I would recommend Burnham to any client regardless of their location because I have seen the efficient, quality work they do. Most importantly, they do more than just amazing research and work. They build long lasting relationships. Burnham spends the extra time to get to know their clients and their benefit account managers. They work diligently with both sides of the business to ensure the best quality and price are given to their clients. They are truly wonderful to work with.”

Katie Heinz, ADP


“I don’t worry if we have the right line of coverage, the right plan design, the right communications, or the right employee education in place – I know that Melanie is managing this, is analyzing everything closely each month, and providing any updates or helpful education we can use on a monthly basis.”

Joanne Ziegler


“I have found these benchmarking studies to be very beneficial in helping us to stay abreast of marketplace and industry trends. They provide a very comprehensive, customized and professional analysis of marketplace trends. We rely very heavily on these benchmarking studies to establish strategies that enable us to stay competitive and cost-effective in the design of our employee health and welfare plans.”

Jim Haddad, VP Human Resources, Americas, Agility


“We have been incredibly pleased with the performance of both Burnham and Doug. He is consistently our “go to” guy when dealing with matters of insurance for our portfolio companies: KSL Management Operations, KSL Capital Partners, the KSL Property Group (currently six properties covering around 4,500 employees), ClubCorp Clubs, Squaw Valley, Western Athletic Clubs, etc… Burnham is the company and Doug is the person we go to with every acquisition we make in order to have the process of benefits change and comparisons go as smoothly as possible. They were invaluable in our recent acquisition of Montelucia which had the shortest timeline we have worked with to date.”

Ed Eynon, VP Human Relations, KSL Resorts


“Burnham understands the unique needs of our company culture and helped us to implement an online enrollment system, which will help us meet our goals of becoming carbon neutral by 2020… They continue to be strategic partners for our annual renewals. We continue to receive single digit increases, with limited plan design changes. Thanks to their strong carrier relationships, they are able to negotiate and get us the best overall renewal possible. The team is able to think into the future and advise us what the best strategy is for our company as well as our employees.”

Becky Archibald, Director, Human Resources, Sole Technology


“Burnham’s sensitivity to employee satisfaction while advising on cost reduction to the employer has exceeded expectations. Burnham’s vast experience with self-funded plans has led to recognizable cost savings across our plans, specifically in pharmacy. Burnham’s depth of experience has positioned us well for the future.”

Doris Kirchner, President and CEO, Vail Valley Medical Center


“Burnham demonstrates all of the traits which make a superior broker/consultant. They have been dependable, dedicated and responsive to all of our needs.”

Chief Financial Officer, Shultz Steel Co.


“It is a joy to do business with people who are always responsive in such a positive, proactive way. You represent the epitome of a ‘can-do’ attitude.”

Vice President, Human Resources, Swissport


“We have received superior benefits consulting and servicing, and we attribute our excellent plan selections to Burnham’s longstanding carrier relationships, knowledge and strong negotiating skills. We consider ourselves fortunate to have this team working on our behalf.”

Executive Director of HR, Risk Management and Training Development, Long Beach Transit


“I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how much I appreciate all of the help that I get from Jennifer. Her response time is always immediate. She’s knowledgeable, thorough, and always pleasant. She always gives me a sense that she’s interested in whatever it is that I’m working on; that she’s working with me to achieve a satisfactory end result. Her support as we work to develop a wellness program has been awesome! My thanks to her and to Burnham... you both make my work life so much easier."

Human Resources Coordinator, Morley Construction Company
