Laurence F. Lee III | Principal
Larry founded Plan Analysts 35 years ago as a firm dedicated exclusively to designing and servicing employee benefit programs. He graduated from the University of North Florida with Honors in Business Administration.
Larry built an organization that has provided meaningful results-based employee benefits
consulting services to sizeable employer groups. Typically, these are multi-thousand lives, with a national footprint.
Larry is known for his genuine entrepreneurial interest in the benefits field. He has the knack to foresee challenges which allows him to develop and implement creative solutions.
His commitment to getting results through firm but fair negotiations and follow through has earned him the respect and loyalty of carriers and clients alike. When compared with national surveys of top performing national employers, his clients’ costs are lower on average by $1,000 to $1,500 per employee per year.
Several years ago Larry became concerned about the numerous ways identity theft hurts employers. So he partnered with LifeLock the leading proactive IDT Prevention company and built and administers the LifeLock Employee Benefit Solutions platform. Now with EMRs, not to mention ACA databases which have already been hacked, his program is more critical than ever.
