LAFAYETTE, INDIANA — Henriott Group is proud to welcome Chad Burdo to the team along with Illuminate Advisers. Henriott Group is a full service insurance and risk management firm that has acquired Illuminate Advisers, a niche Employee & Benefits risk management firm focused on strategic benefits planning for large employer groups. Founder and CEO, Chad Burdo has joined Henriott Group and will focus on widening the reach of risk management techniques to existing, as well as new, clients.

Burdo studied under Professor Zach Finn [Henriott Group Director of Risk Management] at Butler University, and joined Henriott Group because of their willingness to do things differently than the "bloated industry norm". He believes the environment for talent has never been tougher that it is today. "Coupling my expertise with their incredible team was a no brainer," stated Burdo.

"Chad's education at Butler University's School of Insurance & Risk Management, coupled with his significant experience of practical application of these risk management tools in the employee benefits space, resonated with our desire to think and act differently to the run of the mill insurance brokers, while we maximize value for our clients," said Andrew Ball Co-CEO

Henriott Group continues to challenge themselves by choosing to work with the top talent in the risk management industry. They are breaking the typical insurance model by turning client data into tangible results, and Burdo will be a great addition to this implementation.

"Henriott has a history of challenging the industry norms and we feel strongly that on the back of a pandemic and subsequent economic boom that this industry has a responsibility to change and deliver value in a more meaningful and transparent manner to its clients. As an organization we are ready, willing, able, and excited to be leading this change, while others cling onto the past and hope that the same old same old will be good enough," said Kelley Henriott Co-CEO.
