Ron joined Kistler Tiffany Benefits (now a OneDigital Health & Beneftits Company) in 2011.

He was also responsible for implementing a strategic forecasting tool for long-term strategic planning and plan design modeling and a financial management repository for client financial information and trend analysis.

He also spent 12 years as a client relationship manager with Aon-Hewitt in the Health & Welfare Department, where he was responsible for overall relationship management and the development and implementation of comprehensive benefit strategies.

Ron began his career with Prudential Insurance, Inc., where he worked as both as a new business proposal and retention underwriter for all health and welfare coverage lines.

He received his degree in finance from Villanova University.
