Insurance Planning & Service Company, LLC has hired Katie Landers as employee benefit specialist. Mrs. Landers assists employers with implementing attractive, well designed benefit packages that meet their distinct needs and budget, said officials.

On her reason for joining IPSCO, Mrs. Landers said, “Employers are increasingly becoming fed up with the 'pay more, get less' trend in health insurance. Guiding clients toward higher-performing plans while providing creative solutions to finance out of pocket healthcare expenses is what excites me. Education and communication of these benefits can be a challenge, I am focused on delivering a streamlined enrollment experience using face-to-face consultations and the latest technology. Through IPSCO, I will have the backing of a team of experts, while providing personal, local service right here in the Chattanooga area.”

IPSCO Vice President of Employee Benefits Buck Orrison, said, “Katie’s unique background brings strategic advantage to our team as the health care industry continues to face challenges. Now more than ever, it is imperative employers not only attract great employees-but also retain them. Providing sustainable solutions that fit the changing needs of today’s evolving workforce is critical. Our clients not only rely on our expertise but have come to expect cutting edge solutions and exceptional customer service from IPSCO. Katie joining our team is another example of our commitment to excellence.”
