About Us

What do we do?

We are what many refer to as an “employee benefits broker”, although we believe we offer much more than what typically fits the description.  We partner with mid-sized employers headquartered in New England that offer their employees benefit plans like health, dental, vision, flexible spending accounts, life, disability and much more.

Who owns Sullivan Benefits?

Gary Goodhile and Chrystine Heier founded Sullivan Benefits and both remain 50% owners of the company to this day.  Collectively, they have over 70 years of employee benefits experience in the Massachusetts group insurance marketplace.  In 1998, both at a crossroads in their careers, Gary and Chrystine took a run at starting their own employee benefits consulting firm, and the rest is history.

Where does the “Sullivan” come from?

As a small firm with little visibility to start, Gary and Chrystine quickly partnered with the Sullivan Group and became the employee benefits “wing” to a very successful and well known Property & Casualty firm in Massachusetts.  To this day, Sullivan Benefits and Sullivan Group operate as separate entities, but maintain a very close partnership and serve many mutual clients.

The benefits assessment that Sullivan Benefits did for us was significantly superior to anything we had received until that point. It was ultimately a key determinant in our decision to start working with them.
