Hunt C. Turner

With clients in talent-driven sectors like technology, entertainment, non-profit and financial services, Hunt Turner helps employers thrive even when the labor market is tight. He says a smart benefits strategy is key for employers whose success depends on attracting and retaining talent. “I like to continually have that conversation with my clients in and honest, transparent way, so we can work together to align staffing, growth and budget.” Along with strategy, Hunt keeps his focus on leading edge tactics that lend efficiency to the traditionally cumbersome process of benefit communications, enrollment and administration. Mixing “high tech” and “high touch” approaches, he’s helped employers streamline their work, while keeping employees feeling engaged with their company benefit programs. “I turned one mid-sized employer from a paper-based platform to an online benefits management system,” he says. “But we still brought in staff for a one-to-one open enrollment process, because that human component is so important. Employees gave the experience a 95% positive rating.” Prior to joining Wood Gutmann & Bogart, Hunt served as a senior vice president for SullivanCurtisMonroe in the brokerage’s Los Angeles office for nearly six years. He spent a combined ten years at other brokerages focusing on employee benefits, after working more than five years on the carrier side for Great West Life. Hunt holds a bachelor’s degree in financial management from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and currently volunteers for Cal Poly SLO’s alumni association, representing 40,000 of his fellow alumni who live in the Southern California area. He has previously served as a board member for a Pasadena-area cancer support community.

However, there are concerns that these changes could be detrimental to existing health care plans that currently cover many consumers.
