We are HIB Advisors

Our unique line of services requires a unique name. We are HIB Advisors. HIB stands for Health, Insurance and Benefits. Unlike most companies, we handle these three key elements of small business protection and growth under one roof. From insuring your employees' health to providing for their future, Paladin takes care of the crucial and complicated details so you can focus on your business.


We at Paladin HIB advisors strive to find sustainable benefit solutions that offer true long-term value to help you attract and retain quality employees. We take a client focused approach instead of a product driven "one-size" fits all mentality.

Paladin HIB account team members are experts in employee benefits consulting and our goal is to address specific needs and bring solutions that impact your company in a positive way. All of our team members have extensive employee benefit experience and remain active in continuing education in Human Resources and benefits. We constantly educate and make ourselves aware of new developments, emerging trends and cost saving initiatives that are beneficial solutions within our industry.

As plan administration becomes more complex, you need experienced, knowledgeable advocates to help navigate through challenging situations and provide the needed support to employees and employers alike.

We feel with our resources and understanding of employee benefits, we can help you reduce administrative cost and burden and bring true value to your staff and team. At Paladin we feel that we are an extension of your company and we will work hard to nurture and support your employees throughout the year and be a resource for any benefits questions or issues they may encounter.
