AGA Benefit Solutions Becomes a Member of the International Benefits Network


On May 22-24, 2022, the International Benefits Network (IBN) held its first in-person meeting since the onset of the pandemic in London, England. This was an important reunion for this group created in 1989, which is a leading global network of employee benefits, health and wellbeing consulting firms. Present in over 80 countries, IBN provides member firms and their clients with the expertise required to care for their employees wherever they operate.

Member firms undergo a stringent selection process. Generally, a single firm is selected in each country to become the network’s reference provider. Only firms demonstrating the highest level of expertise and professionalism can qualify. Our President and CEO, Martin Papillon, attended the meeting to represent AGA and illustrate the depth of our group insurance and retirement savings service offering.

“I am very pleased to reconnect with a network which I know well as I had the opportunity of working for a member firm in the past. It’s amazing to see how the network developed in the past 15 years. It has gained a truly worldwide scope, and its members are more committed than ever to serve an increasingly globalized and fast-moving market,” said our CEO at the close of the meeting.
