Benefits Practice Leader
Cooper is a student of employee benefits. Having spent his entire career consulting in this space, he has also worked at the forefront of moving our agency’s benefits practice from a brokerage-only focus in the early 2000s to a post-ACA, “beyond benefits” and holistic health plan design consulting practice.
Cooper and his team — benefits consultants, HR experts, wellness nurse, data analyst, compliance expert, marketing veterans and legal resources — work with commercial clients of all sizes, from 5 employees to 5,000 and above.
Together they provide innovative improvements to plan designs that reduce the cost of providing benefits, with a service philosophy based on a high-touch, close partnership development with clients.
Cooper came to our agency after EBSCO Industries acquired ANB Insurance Services in 2006.
He has been in the insurance business for 15 years. He obtained a bachelor’s degree from The University of Alabama in 1998 and an MBA from The University of Alabama at Birmingham in 2002. Cooper received the Chartered Life Underwriter Designation in 2008.
He serves on the Junior Board of Lifeline Children’s Services and on the Legacy Team at Church of the Highlands. He attends Mountain Brook Community Church and coaches youth soccer. He has been married for over a decade and has four children.
