Gearharts Are Finalists for BenefitsPro’s ‘Broker of the Year’

Bob Gearhart Jr. and Bob Gearhart Sr., owners of DCW Group in Boardman, will stand on a stage in San Diego April 19 with four other finalists in hopes of winning BenefitsPro magazine’s broker of the year award. BenefitsPro nominates five finalists who are advancing the employee benefits industry. This is the first time in the 14-year history of the award that co-nominees from a single firm are finalists. “It’s so rewarding that what we’re doing here is being recognized nationwide,” says Gearhart Jr. “It’s very much a team effort,” adds Gearhart Sr. DCW ties its fees to performance as it manages the health-care supply chain, which lowers health-care costs. “It’s a very small percentage of people in our industry who are doing this,” Gearhart Sr. says.
