Our People

From Consulting and Alternative Funding to Enrollment and Claim Support

Eric Eveland

Eric has been involved in the protection planning business for more than 12 years. He started his career off as an advisor with NY Life where he learned the intricacies of the insurance industry while helping clients reach their financial goals. In 2011, Eric was given the opportunity to make a transition from working directly with consumers to the brokerage space, specializing in supporting advisors with designing protection planning strategies for their clients’ financial plans. Eric works to incorporate his vast knowledge of advanced insurance concepts and business planning, to find the best solutions to meet the needs of his advisor’s clients. Eric’s recommendations are driven by innovation, knowledge, and compassion.

Outside of the office, Eric is an athlete and thrill seeker. He is an avid mountain climber, having already conquered 39 high peaks. In 2021, Eric completed his 1st but certainly not last, triathlon.  When he’s not braving the Northeast’s harsh winter weather on a mountain, Eric is usually travelling with his fiancé, Hannah and enjoying all that life has to offer.

Caitlin Sawyers

Caitlin’s responsibilities include managing the renewal information throughout the year, reviewing accounts to help identify cross-selling opportunities, communicating renewal information to both advisors and clients, as well as taking coverage out to market if the need arises. Caitlin previously worked in the Customer Care department at Excellus. She uses that experience to simplify navigating the complicated system for employees and advisors. Caitlin received her designation as a Group Benefits Disability Specialist in 2022 and has been instrumental in creating internal processes that help automate some of our more complex tasks. 

Outside of work, Caitlin is usually at home with her husband Edson, their cat Simba, and their dog Lyric, relaxing in the sunshine, running laps around the house to tire out the animals, or watching real-life crime shows, UFC fights, or F1 races.’
