Company History & Philosophy

Leaders With Vision

Kistler Tiffany Benefits, now a OneDigital Health and Benefits company, was founded by William O. Daggett, Jr. in 1973. Initially the Group Benefits department of Kistler Tiffany Companies, Kistler Tiffany Benefits began operating as an independent entity in the late 1990s.  From 1999 to 2016, the company experienced significant growth, opening offices in Wilmington, DE (1999), northern and southern NJ (2001 and 2007), Allentown, PA (2004), and Scranton, PA (2008), solidifying its position as the tri-state region’s leading benefits consulting firm and General Agency.

In 2016, Shawn N. Orenstein succeeded Mr. Daggett as CEO of the company, with Joseph Dowd assuming the role of president and Mr. Daggett the position of chairman.

In 2020, the company announced a new partnership with OneDigital Health and Benefits, the nation’s leading strategic advisory firm focused on driving business growth for employers of all sizes. Through this new partnership with OneDigital, Kistler Tiffany Benefits’ clients will have access to an even greater roster of experts and resources representing the best possible in benefits, HR, and technology solutions.
