"The United Benefit Advisors UBBIE Awards recognize people and organizations who exemplify the UBA culture that shared wisdom yields powerful results. This is the highest award within UBA," says Peter Weber, UBA President. "The UBBIE Awards also acknowledge innovation, quality of work, professionalism, and contributions to programs that enhance business practices for the greater good of the entire UBA organization as well as Partner Firm clients and the employees they serve. Those selected for the award are respected at every level and are usually the 'go-to' people and organizations when seeking knowledge and collaboration."
The UBBIE Award recipients were announced at the 2019 UBA Spring Conference in Rosemont, Illinois, which was attended by more than 325 employee benefit and financial advisors including 66 insurance carriers and industry-leading merchants.
