Our Team


Melissa and her team are excellent to work with. Not only do they ensure that we get the best value for our Firm, but they learn about our culture and suggest the best options for our employees. They have been instrumental in designing, monitoring, and participating in our Wellness Program. They go above and beyond to assist us with the day-to-day questions and concerns facing our employees whether it relates to claims or what is covered by our benefits. I know when I have a question, they are a phone call or e-mail away. It definitely makes our jobs in HR and Management much easier!

— Chief Administrative Officer | Law Firm

Working with the team at Whipple & Company has been such a positive experience! Their industry knowledge and customer-service focus is such an asset to clients. We know we have a great partner who helps us deliver the best products and services to our employees.

— HR Director | Country Club

Working with the Team at Whipple & Company makes my job easier. Not only have they provided us with first class customer service, we haven’t had an increase in medical rates or a change in benefits in 6 years! We are confident that if we need something or more importantly our employees need something, they are there to support our every need.
