CHICAGO, Oct. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Prairie States Enterprises, the Midwest-based medical claims administrator and health management company, has announced the hiring of Brett Wilkinson as its new Vice President, Regional Sales, as of Monday, September 26th. His addition, along with that of Sales Executive Tony Johnston, marks a new move forward in the company's push to expand market share throughout the Midwest and beyond.
With nearly 20 years' experience in group medical benefit sales, Wilkinson specializes in the small-to-midsize market (50 to 500-plus employee life range) and has developed numerous longstanding relationships with brokers and consultants in Michigan, Ohio, Illinois and Florida. He'll be leveraging those relationships to gain market share in those states and others. "This is a fantastic opportunity," Wilkinson said. "Prairie States' strengths are exactly the kinds of things prospective clients are most interested in: accuracy in claims payment, health management that improves outcomes and saves money. And of course, great service."
Prairie States CEO Felicia Wilhelm said that Wilkinson's addition is an important step. "We now pay claims in all 50 states," Wilhelm says, "but we're primed for growth. Brett is highly knowledgeable in self-funding and has an awful lot of experience in business development. We're going to give him all the backing he needs to expand our footprint, significantly."
