We have worked with Strategic Services for several years now and it has been a very rewarding partnership. The service and support we receive is top notch they went above and beyond what would be expected during the turbulence our organization faced during Covid 19. A lot of commercial and health insurance agencies renew with you and can tend to forgot about you mid plan year. SSG is involved and a constant presence and value add throughout the entire year.
I have worked with Greg Sudderth and his team at SSG for over 10 years, and they are a great team to work with. They go to bat for their clients, andare always willing to assist with any inquiry (big or small). They provide as much data as we require to assist us in making decisions, anduse helpful technology and resources. I highly recommend Greg and the entire team at SSG!
SSG is a pleasure to work with. We have had a relationship with them 10+ years. They work hard at keeping us current in the employee benefits area of our company. We consider them a business partner.
I have worked with SSG & their President Doug Roehm for nearly two years. I have had the pleasure to meet Doug and we have had many conversations throughout those years. As a strategic partner the first thing I learned about Doug and his team is that SSG puts the interests of their client first and foremost! I strongly encourage companies to do business with Doug and SSG!
