Much of Sam’s time is spent strategically planning for the continued growth and success of our companies. He ensures both the right ideas and the right people have the opportunity to succeed at both Benecon and ConnectCare3.
“We know that our products and services have saved millions of dollars and improved quality of life for employees across the country. That’s a great reason to get out of bed every day.”
One of Sam’s earlier successes was the creation of health insurance purchasing cooperatives for municipalities. This program was very well received and led to the formation of Inter-Municipal Insurance Services (IMIS) in 1992. In 1997, Benecon was formed through the merger of the benefits division of S.N. Lombardo Insurance Brokers and IMIS.
Sam has over thirty-two years of experience in all aspects of the insurance industry, guiding his companies to national recognition when they were listed four different times by Inc. Magazine as one of the “500 Fastest Growing Companies in America.” In 2007, Sam was awarded an honorary doctorate by Millersville University.Samuel Lombardo
