Gallagher Benefits Services

Haddonfield, NJ
                                                                    

Elected to the Board - 2013

Terry graduated from Villanova University in 1983 with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics. While at VU, he was a member of the track & cross country teams. Terry's entrance into the business world was gained by campus interviews at Villanova's Career Development Center.

During his professional career, Terry became highly regarded for his ability to explain the complex world of health insurance to Owners, CEOs, CFOs, and HR Directors, as well as to staff. He has worked at companies including MetLife, RSI and Gallagher Benefits Services. His talent was in showing practical & creative cost cutting solutions, while maintaining a sense of value in the health plans themselves. These solutions included the design of plans; corporate wellness programs; and financing alternatives. Terry was influential, too, in helping his clients navigate through the changing legislative landscape, and most notably, in understating what became known as "Obamacare" and its impact on businesses. His enduring quality was his ability to explain complex topics in ways that all could understand well enough to make informed decisions. 

Terry retired in June 2012 to experience new adventures with his wife and three children. He has thoroughly enjoyed his time by training for marathons & doing other fitness activities, traveling and reading.
