Burnham Benefits Insurance Services Names Lepore Vice President

IRVINE, CA (March 07, 2019) - Burnham Benefits Insurance Services – a growing industry leader in the California employee benefits brokerage space – promoted Maggie Lepore to Vice President at the firm’s annual State of the Company event. Lepore brings to the central coast the tools and resources of a large, state-wide brokerage firm, with personalized services for each client.

“We’ve been through the transition and renewal process so many times with the school districts that we can run an analysis quickly and fluidly execute Burnham’s services right off the bat. Our growth in the public sector provides us with the unique ability to apply our services for each client best–each one is so unique. Because of this, we can work with the unions and develop a strategy to translate across multiple districts,” says President and CEO Kristen Allison.

Lepore continues to expand Burnham’s central coast footprint through her diverse expertise with public entities. She will utilize the same resources and depth of knowledge to support a tailored services design—strategically. Lepore will also focus on the development of local talent.

Lepore has 18 years of experience in employee benefits consulting, of which six were with Burnham Benefits. She holds a B.A. in Economics from the University of California, Irvine. Lepore’s unique insight into public school districts stems from the fact that she is from a family of educators and administrators— she understands the complex structure and speaks the language.

“I look forward to continuing our growth. There are many other districts we can support out of my location—our expertise and resources help save money—it's just a matter of them getting to know us and trusting us. It grows from there,” Lepore asserts.
