TESTIMONIALS

Our client base reflects a broad range of organizations in both the private and not-for-profit sectors and across a range of industries. We are privileged to have worked with some clients continuously for more than 20 years, serving their evolving group benefit needs.

Our decision to go with Benchmark was based on several factors, along with very competitive commission fees, it was Gisela's insurance background, and the passion and knowledge of the industry that sold us.
Lisa Olson – Manager, Payroll & Benefits
We were extremely pleased with the rates that Benchmark was able to negotiate with all the benefit carriers and the cost savings that we were able to achieve was beyond our expectations.
Doug Chau – Chief Financial Officer
Benchmark recommended and implemented several cost containment solutions that reduced our long term exposure. I am happy to recommend them to any organization looking for a Benefit Consultant that will truly partner with them.
Nora Paradis – Director, Human Resources
Any issue that may arise is dealt with by Benchmark, alleviating a burden for us and leaving the issue for the experts to resolve. I feel confident in their expertise and trust that they have our best interests in mind.
Bianca Marcus – Vice President
