St. Paul, MN (PressExposure) September 05, 2013 -- Margaret LeClair, CEO, announced today that LeClair Insurance is changing its name to "LeClair Group," and bringing a new package of services to market in connection with the roll-out of federal health care reform.
LeClair Group is capitalizing on its strength and history in providing health insurance products to now offer employee benefit services and human resource consulting, in addition to traditional health and life insurance brokerage services for agents.
"We can do more to make life better for our clients and our community, and now is the perfect time given the huge changes happening in our industry," said LeClair, who holds a Ph.D. in Economics and has led the company since 2005. "Our customers have asked for us to branch out, and these new services are responding directly to that demand."
The organization that is now "LeClair Group" was founded in 1932 in Minnesota, and is one of the most established and reputable players in the insurance market.
"We're very excited to see this development and maturity at LeClair Group," said Michael Guyette, CEO of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota. "They know what employers need and want in today's market, and are strongly positioned to deliver outstanding employee benefits and HR consulting in Minnesota and across the country."
LeClair's growth into human resources consulting services and employee wellness programs will add services such as online employee benefit portals, employee benefit compliance reviews, training and education, administration assistance, and more.
The move toward a full-service perspective is motivated by a long-term plan to provide services for insurance agents, business owners, and individuals. LeClair will be able to directly offer its products to a more varied customer base, as well provide those consumers with comprehensive coverage across departments.
LeClair has a broad mission statement: "to provide health and financial security in all corners of America." The brokerage has practiced its mission by equipping its LTC, life, and health insurance agents with well-rounded support. This includes everything from high-quality products and sales support to continuing education through workshops and incentive programs. LeClair will be applying this inclusive mindset to businesses as well through the new human resources consulting services.
Additionally, LeClair believes in a personalized approach, which will also carry over to its new offerings. Clients receive individualized attention and can compare health insurance plans or training programs with the goal of finding a product that fits the ultimate consumer. This philosophy on service has helped build the insurance brokerage firm's reputation over the decades, winning LeClair numerous awards and contributing to its continued growth.
