Brad Mathews will serve as vice president working in the southeast region and based out of Tampa.

He has a passion for finance and has held his Certified Financial Planner (CFP) designation for more than 10 years.  

Todd Marcoux will serve as vice president working in the northeast region and based out of Boston. Todd earned his MBA from the University of Massachusetts and began his insurance career in 1993, bringing 30 years of industry experience to Stealth Partner Group.

“We are delighted to bring Brad and Todd on board,” said Harley Barnes, chief executive officer at Stealth Partner Group. “They have a tremendous level of experience and expertise that will enhance our ability to provide best-in-class support to our clients, carriers and retail broker partners.”

Kathy Phillips will serve as senior vice president and Ancillary Benefits national practice leader. With over 30 years of experience, she brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise in life, disability, extended sick bank transformation, supplemental health, dental and leave administration. Kathy was a top-producing ancillary insurance wholesaler at Lincoln Financial Group, focusing on helping clients find solutions to their benefits challenges. She is a highly sought-after expert in the field, and her unwavering commitment to providing superior service and building strong, lasting relationships was a cornerstone of her 27 year tenure at Lincoln Financial Group.

“With her proven expertise in ancillary benefits, Kathy is a great asset to our growth strategy and ongoing mission to provide industry-leading broker and client support,” said Riva Dumeny, chief operating officer at Amwins Group Benefits. “Kathy is an innovative leader, and we are looking forward to sharing the developments she brings to our products, services and carrier relationships.”
