About four years ago, I dreamed of the day when our firm could bring legal expertise direct to our customers and grow our compliance service offerings. Through the merger of Benefit Associates and Benefit Consultants nearly two years ago, we certainly made great strides in this area. However, today my four-year-old dream became a reality. Today, Catherine (Katy) Stowers joined FirstPerson as an Advisor and General Counsel.
Many of our customers have worked with Katy during her time at Krieg DeVault as a senior benefit attorney in the employee benefits and executive compensation practice group. Her focus on health and welfare plans, including health care reform, will without a doubt be a huge asset to our customers and team.
With many employers adding wellness programs, onsite health clinics and consumer-based designs, Katy’s legal expertise is a valuable source for ensuring these plans and programs are developed in compliance with applicable laws and regulations. Her experience in the practical aspects of benefit plan design and administration within the context of legal compliance brings a unique skill set to our team.
Look for future blog posts and mailings to showcase other happenings at FirstPerson. Until then, feel free to reach out to me or any member of the FirstPerson team. We are always here to serve.
