President and Owner
Employee Benefit Advisors of the Carolinas, LLC was founded “to provide expert guidance to our clients to help them attract and retain good employees,” says president and owner Suzy Johnson. “We currently assist more than 280 businesses in and around the Charlotte area with the design and implementation of their employee benefit programs.”
Fun Fact: Each year, Employee Benefit Advisors hosts an internal fundraiser for The Spokes Group to purchase bicycles for children at Christmas.
“I have become very involved over the years in our national brokers’ and advisors’ association for health insurance and hold a national leadership role,” says Johnson. “I go to Washington, DC annually as part of our association to lobby on behalf of my employer clients for common-sense, bipartisan solutions to the Affordable Care Act.”
In 2007, Johnson joined the Women’s Impact Fund, a collective giving organization. “The women in this group collectively determine the most worthy projects in each area, [including] the arts, education, environment, healthcare and social services, and award high-impact grants annually,” she says.
