Strategic Benefits Advisors (SBA) today announced the appointment of Michael Yaschik as a senior benefits consultant. In this role, Yaschik will counsel SBA’s clients as they navigate both strategic benefits initiatives and everyday administration of their pension, 401(k) and health and welfare (H&W) plans.
Yaschik brings more than 25 years of pension consulting experience to SBA. He most recently served as a senior project manager at global professional services firm Aon (NYSE: AON), where he managed a team of customer service representatives, pension analysts and technical analysts as they helped new clients implement custom pension administration systems and provided ongoing pension administration services. Prior to his 24 years at Aon, Yaschik was a benefits analyst for Atlanta-based pulp and paper company Georgia-Pacific.
“At this time of sweeping transformation in the benefits landscape, employers need experienced advisors they can rely on for sound guidance and creative approaches for anticipating and solving problems,” said SBA Founding Principal Mindy Zatto. “SBA is proud to welcome Michael Yaschik as a senior benefits consultant. His quarter-century of experience significantly augments a team we are already proud to call one of the most tenured in the business.”
“The most rewarding part of my career has been building long-term trust with clients through the delivery of thoughtful guidance and attentive service,” said Yaschik. “I’m excited to join a team that shares these values, and I am energized by the opportunity to forge new relationships and solve fresh challenges on behalf of SBA’s clients.”
Yaschik earned his bachelor’s degree in risk management in 1997 from the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business, where he graduated cum laude. He earned his master’s degree in business administration (MBA) in finance from Georgia State University’s J. Mack Robinson College of Business in 2000.
