Team BEN

First class insurance benefits platform companies don’t build themselves. Ours was founded upon principles of fairness, equality and teamwork. These principles are tangible in every aspect of the BA platform – and how we treat our business partners.

With over a century of combined experience among the members of our leadership team, we know a thing or two about how to create solutions that work for all constituents – from employer groups and organizations to the employees and members who depend upon the value of the products we offer.

Anthony V. Milone

BenAdvance founding partner Anthony Milone draws upon his more than 25 years of industry experience to drive our business strategy and the development of key partner relationships. In 1994 Anthony founded Health Alliance Network, Inc., a healthcare cost containment company that contracts through preferred provider organizations (“PPOs”) that serve thousands of doctors and hundreds of hospitals.

Prior to launching his own company, Anthony was Chairman of QualCare Alliance Networks, Inc., a diversified managed care company owned by the leading New Jersey hospitals, acquired by CIGNA in March 2015.

Robert Siegel

Mr. Siegel has served as President of BenAdvance since January 2013. In addition to developing strategic client relationships, it is Robert’s visionary leadership that fuels our company’s insatiable appetite to continuously enhance the BA platform and marketplace offerings. He has 30 years of experience in the employee benefits business. Prior to joining BenAdvance, Robert was one of four partners who built the largest employee benefit general agency in the New York City metropolitan area, Weston Insurance. At one time that company controlled over 2 billion of premium, sending commission checks to more than 2,500 insurance brokers who placed business through them.

Robert’s experiences include his contributions with BenefitMall, MetLife, other major broker networks, TPAs and carriers – all of which translate into the company’s ability to support larger group businesses through the BA platform.

Andrew L. Goodenough

Our Director of Business Development, Andrew Goodenough, is a former Division President at Thomson Reuters, and CEO of several private equity-backed companies in the insurance and employee benefits business information space, including the well-regarded National Underwriter brand among many others.

He brings to BenAdvance a wealth of talents that range from organizational planning to understanding and implementing the levers required for widespread revenue growth. With over 30 years of industry experience, Andrew’s contributions in the areas of strategic planning, organization and financial relationships are of immense value.

Tim Varone

Our Sr. VP/Director of Business Development, Tim Varone, is a former Director of small group new business at AmeriHealth, where he helped catapult AmeriHealth to a top 3 small group carrier in NJ. Tim, also as a former Director of Sales at Nippon Life Benefits, expanded the NJ health insurance block from under $1 million in annual premium to over $50 million.
