Prairie States Enterprises, a claims administration and and health management company, has hired Brett Wilkinson as its new vice president of regional sales.
The company also hired sales executive Tony Johnston. Both new hires reflect the company's expansion efforts.
"This is a fantastic opportunity," Wilkinson said. "Prairie States' strengths are exactly the kinds of things prospective clients are most interested in: accuracy in claims payment, health management that improves outcomes and saves money. And of course, great service."
Wilkinson has nearly 20 years of experience in group medical benefit sales, specializing in the small to mid-size market. He has developed many longstanding relationships with brokers and consultants in Michigan, Ohio, Illinois and Florida.
"We now pay claims in all 50 states," CEO Felicia Wilhelm said, "but we're primed for growth. Brett is highly knowledgeable in self-funding and has an awful lot of experience in business development. We're going to give him all the backing he needs to expand our footprint, significantly."
