MADISON, Wisconsin – Wisconsin insurance sales veteran Jon E. Klett has joined the WEA Trust as Vice President of Sales & Marketing as of January 14.
“I am ready to be part of the WEA Trust team and apply my twenty-plus years of insurance sales in the public sector. I’m excited about the Trust and its future,” Klett said. “My goal will be to help assess the direction of the company and grow the Trust not only with school districts, but also with municipalities and counties.”
The WEA Trust provides group health insurance to public employers throughout Wisconsin. The not-for-profit WEA Trust was created in 1970 to insure Wisconsin school district employees. Today, the WEA Trust offers its top-rated service and quality benefits to all state, county, and municipal groups.
“We are very pleased that Jon Klett is joining our leadership team,’’ WEA Trust President and CEO Mark Moody said. “This is a very clear indication of our plan to become the leading health plan for Wisconsin public employers. His proven record of success will be a great asset.”
Over the past 25 years, Klett has sold employee benefits for Wisconsin Physicians Service, UnitedHealthcare, and most recently, Humana.
“Jon has the talent, record and knowledge in the Wisconsin Public Employee benefit realm to make his new team very successful,” said Rae Anne Beaudry, executive vice president at The Horton Group, an insurance brokerage firm in Waukesha. “WEA will be well-positioned to continue to move forward with a strong program in 2015 and beyond under his leadership and that of the management team.”
