Joe will make significant contributions toward our mission to provide best in class financial service to our clients. Joe’s experience evaluating network strength at a local level will help our clients optimize their carrier partnerships.”

Zimmerman will be working with the vast array of LDB clients and is looking forward to bringing his talents to Lockton Dunning Benefits. “LDB Associates are well known for delivering innovative solutions and excellent service.
