CHICAGO, Oct. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Prairie States Enterprises, the Midwest-based medical claims administrator and health management company, has announced the hiring of Tony Johnston as the latest addition to its sales team. On board as of Monday, September 26, Johnston joins newly named VP, Regional Sales, Brett Wilkinson in the company's push to expand market share throughout the Midwest and beyond.
Johnston arrives at Prairie States with a wealth of experience across the spectrum of the employee medical benefits industry. With an early grounding in claims processing and as a network administrator with a major carrier, the Michigan native also spent ten years on the brokerage side of the business. Having spent the past 15-plus years in sales, he'll be pursuing opportunities primarily in the Indiana and Illinois markets to expand Prairie States' footprint there. A longtime resident of Northwest Indiana, Johnston will make his home base at the company's North Michigan Avenue offices in Chicago.
"This is an exciting time," Johnston said. "The way Prairie States integrates claims processing, health management and data reporting is unique, powerful stuff. I'm looking forward to getting out there to tell prospects about the way we do things and help them save on their plan costs."
Prairie States CEO Felicia Wilhelm said that Johnston's addition is an important step. "We're primed for growth," Wilhelm said, "and we have all the pieces in place. Tony is extremely well-versed in self-funding and has an awful lot of experience in every aspect of the industry. We're excited to have him out there helping us become a more prominent presence in those states."
