The Guardian Life Insurance Company is Honored

The Guardian Life Insurance company has received a high honor from United Benefit Advisors.  According to the press release found on, Guardian has been named strategic partner of the year for 2010 by United Benefit Advisors (UBA) which happens to be one of the nation's largest employee benefit advisory organizations.  Guardian maintains its reputation as a leading provider of life insurance in the US through these types of honors.

UBS Board Member, Andrea Kinkade, of Kaminsky & Associates in Maumee, Ohio, says this award is a fitting tribute to Guardian since they have shown continued commitment towards UBA.  They highly value Guardian for their strong communication in educating members of group benefits.  Their relationship has grown over the years, starting off as a local office bond, and now has grown to a national alliance level that strives for unique solutions towards making a more effective business.

The National Director of Small Group Sales for Guardian's Group Insurance Division, Clancy Merrill, states that Guardian has long embraced UBA's goals since they have become partners in 2004.  They work very well together as they strengthen their competitive ability and they really work together to meet the needs of both employers and employees.  It's a challenging business, especially with benefit costs rising significantly, but this team has found a way to make it work.

In 2010, Guardian Life Insurance provided support through the education of UBA member firms for new hire training.  This type of contribution is invaluable and hard to find in today's employer.  The company redesigned educational materials and worked on new group benefit courses for new hires at UBA.  It's a strong relationship and both companies continue to work on strengthening abilities and meeting the goals of both employers.
