Mployer Advisor Names Ascela a Winner of Top Employee Benefits Consultant Award for 2023

New York, NY– October 31, 2023 – Mployer Advisor, the leading independent platform for employers to research, review, and evaluate insurance advisors, has named Ascela a winner of its third annual “Top Employee Benefits Consultant Awards” for 2023. Mployer Advisor’s Top Employee Benefits Consultant Award Program evaluates brokers based on the breadth and depth of experience across employer industries, sizes, insurance products, and employer reviews. We recognize esteemed brokers that demonstrate market-leading competencies and a proven track record of success among employers, insurance providers, and peers.

"Ascela is proud to be recognized as a Top Employee Benefits Consultant in New York. At Ascela, our goal is to simplify the complexities of employee benefits," said Al Marino, Principal of Ascela. "We pride ourselves on service excellence and providing employer groups with best-in-class benefits offerings."

"Our team is proud to recognize this group of 2023 top-rated insurance advisors as part of our third annual Top Employee Benefits Consultant Awards,” said Brian Freeman, the Founder and CEO of Mployer Advisor. “Employer-sponsored healthcare and benefits cover over 150M Americans. Who an employer selects as their benefits advisor has more impact on employee cost and satisfaction with their healthcare than who an employer chooses as the insurance carrier. We have rated these brokerages utilizing sophisticated, industry-first algorithms, and we applaud the winners’ demonstrated commitment to service, quality, and positive employer feedback.”

Mployer Advisor determined the winners of the third annual “Top Employee Benefits Consultant Award” by analyzing each brokerage based on historical data, online reviews, their M Score rating, and demonstrated business experience.
