BAN Spins Off From Alera Group, Names Braun CEO

Benefit Advisors Network (BAN), an international network of employee benefit brokers and consulting firms from across the United States and Canada – and the National Benefits Center (NBC), are spinning off from Alera Group, an independent, national insurance and wealth services firm, to become an independent organization.

Perry Braun, who previously held the role of BAN’s executive director, will lead the organization moving forward.

Most recently serving as managing director of business consulting at Alera Group, Braun will acquire BAN from Alera Group. Effective April 1, 2023, Braun will assume the position of president and chief executive officer of BAN. He will use his extensive expertise to oversee the transition of BAN to an independently owned company.

Prior to joining Alera Group, Braun was part of the team that helped launch Alera Group in 2017. In his role as Managing Director of Business Consulting, he focused on a number of key initiatives, including working with managing partners to improve business performance contributing directly to stronger results, and partnering with the property casualty team to build a new premium finance program for Alera Group’s Property & Casualty partners.

“I’m very excited for BAN’s next chapter and even more excited to be back working with the team, members, and partners,” says Braun. “Becoming an autonomous and independent organization after five years as part of Alera Group will mutually benefit both companies and allow BAN to ramp up and re-focus on providing members with the resources they need to deliver standout services to their clients.”

BAN is based in Cleveland.
