He was the manager/director of employee benefits for Acme Markets, Inc., CertainTeed Corporation and General Instrument Corporation from 1979 through 1992. During this period he designed and implemented employee benefit plans, communicated with and educated employees about those plans and dealt with many employee relations issues surrounding employee benefits. During this time he earned his Certified Employee Benefits Specialist (CEBS) designation, a course of employee benefits study offered by the International Society of Employee Benefit Plans and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
In 1992 he made the move to the consultant and broker world and joined the Gwynedd Company in 1999 where he has used his corporate experience to help employers design and implement cost efficient and sensible benefit programs for their employees. He has worked with employers from many industry groups as diverse as attorneys and physicians to manufacturers of plastic parts, with as few as two employees to as many as 500.
On the weekends Ken and his wife enjoy being on his sailboat on Barnegat Bay and beyond, being involved with their church and spending time with family.
