The firm was started over a half century ago by Peter Yozell. He began his career as a life insurance agent for MassMutual, but soon transitioned his entrepreneurial spirit to founding Yozell Associates. Peter remained committed to Yozell and the group employee benefits industry throughout his life, working with insurance carriers to develop products and services relevant to his client’s needs. As a thought leader, he addressed national gatherings and mentored many of today’s most successful HR and benefits professionals. John Yozell, Peter’s son, is the current CEO and carries on his father’s mission to enhance the quality of the client’s experience through innovation and thoughtful leadership. Other members of the leadership team include Marijane Norris Geary as President, Amy Johnson as Vice President of Client Services and Elizabeth Cawley as Vice President of Operations.

Yozell Associates today continues to enjoy serving the group employee and executive benefits needs of a diverse group of employers. Yozell takes pride in its in-depth experience supporting and advising clients ranging from the small “start-up” to the larger, publicly traded company. Continuing Peter’s commitment to the non-profit sector remains a priority and Yozell Associates is proud of the large number of nonprofit clients whom we advise on HR, benefits, and compliance matters, and our involvement in a variety of community organizations and activities. Clients value the personal attention they receive from our knowledgeable and dedicated team, resulting in longtenured relationships spanning two generations of the Yozell family.
