Changing lives by making benefits better.
The Nexben team is reshaping the industry.
Nexben is led by a team of bold, forward-thinking changemakers—dedicated to a common goal: changing the benefits landscape by offering payment solutions that help people spend wisely and live fully.
Prior to Nexben, John founded BrocorXchange in 2012. In 2016 he created the first ICHRA product to help rural schools, cities, and communities control their skyrocketing healthcare costs. The savings generated allowed employees to receive their first cost of living pay increase in over five years.
With 30 years of group benefits experience, John’s innovative thinking and profound understanding of the field put him in a unique position to deliver change, stand at the forefront of the industry, and guide the Nexben team toward unlocking new possibilities. John currently works with policy makers and industry experts evolving the ICHRA and championing making healthcare more affordable for all.
Keith drives vision and strategy at Nexben—motivated by the desire to innovate, disrupt, and transform the benefits industry. He provides a unique perspective on aligning the broader organizational vision while empowering employees to thrive individually and collectively.
Before moving into the world of group health benefits, Keith’s extensive background in consulting and hospitality honed his affinity for solving problems, optimizing systems, and generally making things better for people. From operations and employee retention at Disney to owning franchised restaurants, Keith’s roles shaped the philosophy and work ethics that fuel Nexben and inspire his team today.
