Jon Trevisan – Senior Vice President and McGriff Employee Benefits Practice Leader said: “Acquiring Peak Health will expand our national well-being platform.
“These new offerings from McGriff – individual health coaching, fitness testing, and onsite engagement – will appeal to employers who are interested in providing best-in-class, comprehensive well-being programs.”
McGriff said that the employees of Peak Health will become part of its health and welfare and wellness consulting team, and will be headed by Karen Reid, who is McGriff Area President.
