|ST. LOUIS, Mo., December 7, 2017 — Lockton, the world’s largest privately held insurance broker, is continuing to grow its employee benefits business in St. Louis with the addition of Mark Haegele and Brian Fallon. As a Producer, Haegele will identify clients and their complex risk exposure, while Fallon will lead a team that handles the day-to-day employee benefits activities of clients.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer clients the knowledge and expertise provided by Mark and Brian relative to direct contracting and Collaborative Care Consulting in the employee benefits field.” said Kevin McDaniel, president and chief executive officer of Lockton St. Louis.
“Mark and Brian have been working together for years and their dynamic relationship and knowledge of the employee benefits arena will help clients achieve the results they are seeking,” said Peter Caine, chief operating officer of Lockton St. Louis. “We are thrilled to have them onboard as we expand our employee benefits services to better serve clients.”
While Fallon is new to Lockton, he’s a familiar face. The new Employee Benefits Unit Manager in the Provider
Relations Practice collaborated with Lockton Associates in his previous partner role at Halleon Health Advisors. He worked alongside Haegele and together they decided to close their consulting firm Halleon Health Advisors to better serve clients with Lockton.
Most recently, Haegele was managing partner of Halleon Health Advisors. Prior to Halleon, he spent 14 years at HealthLink, Inc., an Anthem Company, as regional vice president of sales. He also worked for HealthScope Benefits as an AVP of network development.
Prior to Halleon, Fallon worked at HealthLink, Inc., an Anthem Company, for 16 years as regional vice president of network management, payer relations and business development. Haegele met Fallon at HealthLink, Inc., where he worked as a regional vice president of sales for 14 years before the duo opened their own consulting firm.
The duo will work together on provider relations activities for clients and hospitals by focusing on three core areas:
Collaborative Care Development – designs and implements benefit plans for a targeted facility and their employed or affiliated providers
Direct Contracting – help employers with large employee concentrations and negotiate direct contracts with local hospitals
Managed Care Outsourcing and Contracting Consulting – help hospitals or carriers engage in sub-contracting. Work with rural facilities to understand revenues related to managed care contracts and provide recommendations.
