President, Managing Advisor
Mike Mandolfo founded Strategic Benefits in 2010 with a passion to help clients manage their health insurance and employee benefit plans in the ever-changing landscape of health care reform.
After spending many years within the insurance and human capital management industry, Mike noticed a division between broker solutions and consumer needs. Striving to offer the best, Mike wanted to create a business model where needs and solutions met. Soon after, Strategic Benefits was born. Mike strives to build trusting client relationships, while also keeping cost low, value high, and compliance in check.
Mike grew up in Iowa and graduated Cum Laude from Peru State College with a bachelor’s degree in business management, soon after he began his career in Omaha. His expertise stems from more than 17 years in the industry, dealing specifically with employee benefit plans, the Affordable Care Act, compliance, benefits administration, integrated human resource solutions, and the health insurance marketplace.
Mike Mandolfo had the honor of being awarded Healthcare.gov's 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022 "Elite Circle of Champions" recognition by The Department of Health & Human Services as a Nationwide top producing health insurance agent.
