SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. /California Newswire/ — EPIC Insurance Brokers and Consultants, a retail property, casualty and employee benefits insurance brokerage and consultant, announced today the additions of Employee Benefits Consulting professionals Davin Millholland and Rosemary Hughes to its rapidly growing Employer Services Platform (ESP).

Ranked #5 among the fastest growing large group benefits consultants in the U.S. by Employee Benefit Advisor, EPIC has experienced rapid growth since launching its national Employers Services Platform in 2012 in response to the Affordable Care Act and national healthcare reform. Since then the company has invested heavily in its consulting operations around the country with key hires in major regions to expand the expertise and services EPIC offers to employers nationwide.
"As EPIC continues to grow, we knew our clients would appreciate and value enhanced actuarial services and support, as well as world class Employee Benefits consulting capabilities in the Northeast," stated Chris Duncan, EPIC's Chief Growth Officer and National Employee Benefits Leader. In both Davin and Rosemary, we found top professionals whose beliefs, values and strong client focus match well with our own and further strengthen our offerings."
Prior to joining EPIC, Millholland spent more than 10 years with Mercer Health & Benefits in the Greater Atlanta Area, where he was a senior associate and healthcare actuarial analyst. Millholland attended Berry College in Mount Berry, Ga., where he earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics.
He then obtained a Master's Degree in Actuarial Science from Georgia State University – J. Mack Robinson College of Business. Professionally he is a Certified Associate of the Society of Actuaries.
Hughes was most recently the Director of Benefits for Avis Budget Group based in New Jersey, where she was responsible for benefit and wellness programs in the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. In addition, Hughes previously served a wide range of clients as a health and welfare consultant at several large, national brokerage/consulting firms.
