The Buckner Company, an Utah-based insurance brokerage, has acquired Dana Benefits, and hired its founder Carol Dana into the Employee Benefits department.

Dana will join the team of benefits experts at The Buckner, where she will continue to work with individual medical plans, medicare clients, and group employee benefits packages.

The Buckner said with recent changes in healthcare reform, individuals and businesses will have more need than ever before to have access to an informed healthcare insurance agent when making coverage decisions.

The Buckner Company president and CEO Terry Buckner said Dana’s professionalism and dedication to service provides a great addition to the employee benefits practice.
