Piedmont Payment Services Expands Executive Team to Remove Barriers in the Voluntary Benefits Market January 18, 2017 Columbus, GA—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Piedmont Payment Services, LLC. (Piedmont) has added three business development executives to increase awareness of their billing solutions in the voluntary benefits industry. Many employers are interested in offering voluntary benefits, but opt out due to administrative and billing challenges. In this environment of perpetually trying to offer more for less, Piedmont’s services fill an expanding need. Michael Naumann, Matt Ginter and Jami Augustine are focused on delivering these solutions to producers, carriers and enrollment platforms. “We’re looking to gain awareness in the marketplace and provide education on the billing solutions that are now available,” said Ginter. Matt Ginter has demonstrated success in delivering voluntary benefits to Fortune 500 companies. His remarkable ability to navigate complex sales environments couples with his deep understanding of what brokers need to successfully create significant value for his clients. Matt is thrilled to be able to provide new solutions to problems that have plagued the industry for years. Michael Naumann’s extensive background includes direct experience filling the roles of the individuals he now serves, so he has first-‐hand knowledge of their challenges and knows how to strategically “turn roadblocks into revenue opportunities.” According to Naumann, “when an employer is unwilling or unable to offer payroll deduction, Piedmont provides billing options that enable the sales opportunity to continue to move forward.” Jami Augustine brings expertise in streamlining processes and delivering solutions. Her natural inclination to provide exceptional service and build lasting relationships makes her a great fit for Piedmont’s driving philosophy of helping people. “Credibility is our highest priority. We know the market and how to set things up properly the first time,” says Augustine. “We’re excited to have Jami, Michael and Matt on our team. Their collective industry experience, customer service focus and commitment to finding innovative solutions for clients makes them the perfect addition to the Piedmont family,” said Brian Hicks, vice president of business development for Piedmont. This isn’t the first time Naumann, Ginter and Augustine have triangulated their talents in the insurance industry. When asked what makes them work so well as a team, they cite respect, integrity, an overriding passion for the industry and strong relationships that make working together a true pleasure. This trio is looking forward to delivering simple solutions to multifaceted problems throughout the voluntary benefits community.
