CEO Spotlight – David Faulkenberry, FBMC Benefits Management

David-Faulkenberry-webAfter 15 years of service in state government, I had the opportunity to expand my career and become the President of FBMC.  Through a mutual friend, I was introduced to the Chairman of FBMC’s Board of Directors Mike Sheridan, and after speaking with him, the rest of the Board, and the management team, I knew this was a chance of a lifetime.  FBMC has a national reputation of providing outstanding service and I was excited about integrating my experiences into the company.

Five years later, I am thrilled to be a part of the FBMC family and I’m excited to be leading a company that cares about our clients, and provides best in class products and services.  I grew up in the Florida panhandle and my wife and I moved to Tallahassee in 1996.  Being able to live and work in Tallahassee gives me the best of all worlds: a small town feel, but with world class business, education and opportunity to grow as a person and as a business.

FBMC_logo_2color_PrintOur company recently celebrated 40 years in business.  This was a major milestone and reflects our commitment of proving outstanding service to our clients.  Since 1976, we have had a simple goal: to provide employees with the life and health benefits they need to properly insure themselves and their family.  We are a national company and we provide employers with a comprehensive suite of employee benefits services including brokerage of medical and voluntary products, benefits education and communication, enrollment management, benefits administration and compliance services.

Charitable giving and community involvement are key components of FBMC’s culture.  In fact, every year we set aside a percentage of company profits to charity organizations.  We actively participate in the Tallahassee community and make regular efforts to support charities including The Ronald McDonald House, Distinguished Young Gentlemen of America, The Shelter, Eldercare Services, and Big Bend Hospice, American Heart Association and many others.  Our charitable activities extend to our clients too.  We view our clients as family – that’s why we sponsor local events and charities in our clients’ communities.
