Mike Mandolfo founded Strategic Benefits in 2014 with a passion to help local employers and families manage their health insurance and employee benefit plans in the ever-changing landscape of healthcare reform.
After spending many years within the insurance carrier and human capital management industry, Mike noticed a division between broker relationships and consumer needs. Striving to offer the best, Mike wanted to create a business model where relationships and needs were met. Soon after, Strategic Benefits was born. Mike strives to build trusting client relationships, while keeping benefit costs low, value high, and compliance in check.
Mike grew up in southwest Iowa and graduated Cum Laude from Peru State College (NE) with a bachelor’s degree in business finance. His professional expertise stems from 20+ years in the insurance industry, with a primary focus on group benefit solutions for small to midsized employers (and) health plan strategies for self-employed families.
Mike Mandolfo has led Strategic Benefits to distinguished recognitions that include winning “B2B Best of Omaha” top employee benefits firm by Omaha Magazine in 2022 & 2023. Mike has also led Strategic Benefits to being honored as Healthcare.gov’s Elite Circle of Champions, top agency recognition for 7 straight years from 2018 – 2024 by serving the health insurance needs of families across Nebraska.
