CEO Spotlight – David Faulkenberry, FBMC Benefits Management

As healthcare reform continues to alter the landscape of the benefits industry, FBMC Benefits Management, Inc. (FBMC), is keeping pace while preparing for the future.

When FBMC opened its doors in 1976, founder Mike Sheridan had a simple goal: to provide underinsured Florida public schools employees with the benefits they needed. Since those humble beginnings, FBMC has grown significantly to become an institution and innovator in the employee benefits industry.

FBMC provides comprehensive employee benefits services and management, offering employers customized solutions, including brokerage of voluntary/core products, benefits education and communications, enrollment management, and administrative and compliance services. Most recently, FBMC added medical consulting to its services to provide comprehensive coverage options to its clients.

With FBMC Benefits Management since 2011, President David Faulkenberry provides strategic direction for FBMC and has overall responsibility for the leadership and management of the officers and management teams. Faulkenberry, who has more than 15 years of executive level experience, sets the corporate strategy and oversees the, planning, implementation and delivery of customized benefits solutions to private and public-sector clients and customers nationwide.

Headquartered in Tallahassee, with on-site client field offices throughout the United States, FBMC is ready for the future when it comes to the industry’s most prominent recent developments, including private healthcare exchanges, ACA compliance, telemedicine and more. No communications trend goes unnoticed. FBMC uses the latest in cutting-edge technology – mobile apps, interactive guides, user experience (UX) materials and more – to market benefits to its clients’ multi-generational, ethnically diverse workforce.

Charitable giving and community involvement are key components of FBMC’s culture. The company actively participates in the local Tallahassee community and makes regular efforts to support charities including The Ronald McDonald House, Distinguished Young Gentlemen of America, The Shelter, Eldercare Services, and Big Bend Hospice. FBMC’s charitable activities extend to its clients too. Clientele is treated as family at FBMC – that’s why the company sponsors local events and charities in its clients’ communities.
