Jere Meyer is an insurance broker that has served the Pacific Northwest area since 1996. Jere grew up in the Seattle area, graduated from Juanita High School in Kirkland and attended the University of Washington receiving his undergraduate degree in Economics. While attending the UW, Jere was a member of the Delta Upsilon Fraternity where he still is active in mentoring undergraduate members today. To give back, Jere follows in his Father’s footsteps by serving on the Board for a local non-profit, Bridge Disability Ministries / Meyer Mobility Center. While away from the office, Jere and his wife April enjoy travelling and enjoying the outdoors. Whether scuba diving, mountain biking, golfing, boating, skiing or just simply enjoying fine wine with friends, there is usually something luring him away from the office every Friday afternoon.
Katie Stewart is an insurance agent, account manager, customer service rep, renewal specialist, the list keeps going… Her desire to learn more about each client and their insurance needs has driven her to be involved in many aspects of the business outside of basic account management. Katie grew up in the Puget Sound area graduating from Gig Harbor High School then went on to Western Washington University where she received her undergraduate degree in Psychology. When she’s not busy at the office she is at home entertaining 2 young kids which includes quite a bit of dancing, painting, fort building and a whole lot of cleaning up. Occasionally, she’s able to breakaway with her husband for a little traveling and fun with friends as well.
“Since we began working with PBS they’ve consistently demonstrated their understanding of the market and ability to offer competitive and flexible plans. They’re one of few local firms willing and able to provide benefits for small groups, making them an obvious choice for startups. When you don’t have a dedicated HR team, service is important. PBS is fast, friendly, and responsive. Our employees never have to wait to get questions answered. I will continue to recommend PBS without hesitation.”
“Our company of 3 dozen employees has had health care since the 2018 calendar year with PBS managing the administration. I would say that the level of support is even better than we expected, we only have to allocate 2 hours or less per month towards the administration of our benefit program! The response time is usually within 30 minutes and I can just route particular inquiries to the PBS team, very fast and very informed, it has been a great fit for us thus far.”
“Lesley, Katie, Jere, and the whole PBS team are an absolute pleasure to work with. They continuously go out of their way to meet our needs and address our individual concerns, adding the personal touch along the way that makes us feel like we are their only client.
Every year, the PBS team looks for ways to save us money and best serve the needs of our employee base and our company at our annual open enrollment. Rooster Park highly recommends PBS and the services they provide!”
