John Rutledge

Sr. Vice President

John is a Senior Vice President at Assurance, a Marsh McLennan Agency LLC company, with over 30 years of professional insurance experience. He’s widely recognized as an expert on the impact of the Affordable Care Act on staffing agencies and was asked to provide input by both the Obama and McCain campaigns during the 2008 Presidential election. His speaking engagements on the ACA include the SIA Executive Forum, ASA Staffing World, the Contingent Workforce Forum, as well as seminars and webinars for ANSERTEAM, TempNet, NISA, ASA affiliates, and several independent staffing associations and peer groups. John is a leader in Assurance’s initiative to develop health insurance, administrative and compliance solutions for staffing companies under the ACA with a focus on controlling costs using advanced risk strategies.

During John’s career, he’s served in senior leadership roles for Blue Cross and Blue Shield and as Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Coventry Health Care. He was a regional Practice Leader for Marsh and Mercer Consulting and the Wellness Practice Leader for Gallagher Benefit Services. John once owned a small staffing firm prior to his career in insurance, so he not only brings a wealth of employee benefits knowledge, but also understands the perspective of a business owner.

John earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Management from Webster University.
