Scott Forester is Founder and Principal of Forester Benefits Management, a marketing firm and managing general underwriter that partners with brokers and insurance carriers to provide groups with the benefits they want and need. Scott began his insurance career working with his father selling Blue Cross/Blue Shield health insurance and eventually moved into the worksite products arena.
In 1995, he joined forces with the founders of the Abacus Group to design and market worksite term-life and disability products that are uniquely competitive. He was appointed as State Manager for the Abacus Series products and has been the leading producer for Abacus Series each year since 1995. In 2007, recognizing an opportunity to combine the Abacus Series products with high-quality customized enrollment services, Scott launched Abacus Benefits Management.
ABM expanded its line of product offerings to include whole life, accident and critical illness coverage through Boston Mutual Life Insurance Company, as well as term-life and disability products through other top-rated insurance companies, and in 2012 launched a new company name – Forester Benefits Management – to reflect the company’s growth and expanded product offerings. Scott’s goal is to continue to offer products and services that meet the ever-changing demands of the marketplace.
