McGohan Brabender

Firm overview

McGohan Brabender is nationally recognized for our innovative, forward thinking approach to managing employee benefits. Founded in 1972, we have been named a top place to work and our culture appeals to a quality and well-educated group of employees.

McGohan Brabender, Inc. (MB) is incorporated in the State of Ohio and is a privately held company structured as a C-Corporation. On June 1, 2021, McGohan Brabender proudly became an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan) to remain fiercely independent, incentivize high performing employees, and ensure that future growth opportunities focus on driving value to our clients – not Wall Street investors.

MB is an independently owned employee benefits firm with 18 “pre ESOP” shareholders and is considered one of the largest independent brokerage firms in the U.S. with nearly 200 employees in offices in Dayton, Cincinnati, Columbus, Indianapolis and Kentucky. We represent more than 1,400 employers, 240,000 members and over $1.5 billion in health care spend.

Services and/or products

MB works with employers to create a customizable benefit offering for their employees, and they help companies effectively manage their healthcare dollars. They challenge employers to change their approach to health care benefits and take control of rising costs and chronic disease.

MB provides full consulting services in the arena of employee benefits, including: financial analysis, advanced data analytics with clinical projections and reporting, compliance support, advocacy for employees, communication services, health management and engagement services and other project support as needed.

McGohan Brabender initially joined the Goering Center as a Core Member in 2014. As a Core Member, we were honored to be a semi-finalist in the Family & Private Business Awards. In 2018, MB became a Corporate Partner of the Goering Center, and Erick Schmidt joined the board of advisors. Currently Brian Miller represents MB on the board.
