As the need for disability coverage, paid family and medical leave, and group benefits grows across the U.S., The DBL Center continues to expand its team to better serve insurance brokers.

The DBL Center welcomes William Quinn, Senior Relationship Consultant for Group Benefits, to its growing family. In this new role, Quinn will work with brokers to help their clients identify risk gaps and provide long-term sustainable insurance solutions to close those gaps. “I believe in helping clients seek synergistic, long-term solutions for gaps in employee benefits,” he said.

Quinn comes to DBL Center from Principal Financial Group, where he was a senior account executive specializing in group benefits. Before that, he briefly filled the role of Director, Account Management for Liazon, a leading private benefits exchange. He started his insurance industry career with Rose & Kiernan, Inc., where he spent more than a decade, earning the title of Assistant Vice President.  

It was at Principal Financial Group that Quinn first met DBL Center founder David Cohen, whose spirit and legacy lives on in his son, DBL Center President and CEO Michael Cohen. From those early meetings, Quinn was impressed by how friendly, welcoming, and receptive The DBL Center team was in supporting group benefits to complement their statutory lines of DBL in New York, TDB in New Jersey, and TDI in Hawaii.

In his position at The DBL Center, Quinn will assist our internal salespeople’s broker relationships by adding group ancillary benefits in order to leverage their renewals and assist with enrollments.   These products include dental, vision, Group Life / AD&D, long-term disability, absence management and voluntary worksite benefits.

Michael Cohen commented, “Bill Quinn’s extensive experience working with a top carrier, coupled with his professionalism and the respect he has earned from brokers over the years, makes him the perfect addition to our team. He will be working as the bridge between statutory / paid leave insurance and our ancillary benefits department to help cross-sell lines of coverage, fill gaps, and support our brokers in a rapidly changing world of employee benefits.”

Eager to join the company beginning August 1, 2022, Quinn said, “The DBL Center has always been a great partner for their carriers in helping promote the group insurance model for brokers and their clients. It’s a great team with an excellent work ethic and a solid approach to doing business.”
