David Contorno selected as Top Benefits Leader of the Year by IAOTP

David Contorno, Insurance Broker and Business Owner, was recently selected as Top Benefits Leader Of the Year for 2024 by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP) for his outstanding leadership, dedication, and commitment to the industry.

Inclusion with the International Association of Top Professionals is an honor in itself; only a few members in each discipline are chosen for this distinction. These special honorees are distinguished based on their professional accomplishments, academic achievements, leadership abilities, longevity in the field, other affiliations, and contributions to their communities. All Honorees are invited to attend the IAOTP annual award gala at the end of this year for a night to honor their achievements.

With more than two and a half decades of experience in the industry, Mr. Contorno has certainly proven himself as an expert in his field.  As a dynamic, results driven leader, David founded E Powered Benefits, a new and innovative benefit consulting agency, which is giving back control to the clients with transparency and flexibility. Their leadership has a documented history of effective cost savings and improved health outcomes. In addition, David co-founded the YOU Powered Symposium, which brings together hundreds of benefit professionals, solution providers, clinicians, and employers to combine their diverse expertise in an effort to reform the US healthcare system on behalf of every patient.  David is also an instructor and contributor at Certified Health Value Advisor Training Course as well as teaching faculty at NextGen Benefits Mastermind Partnership.

Among his many accolades, David received a Broker Spotlight in 2004 and was recognized as an outstanding Broker of Service in 2005 through 2014 by Blue Cross Blue Shield. He has continually received the Echelon Award by United Healthcare since 2003, reserved for the top 1% of agents nationally, and was a 2015 “40 Under 40” Award Winner presented by Charlotte Business Journal. Most recently, David was Benefits Selling Magazine’s 2015 Broker of the Year and, in March 2016, Forbes deemed him “One of America’s Most Innovative Benefits Leaders.”

David’s areas of expertise include but are not limited to cost containment, employee benefits, and health insurance as well as new business development, team building and strategic planning. 

Before embarking on his career path, Mr. Contorno graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology in 1996 with a degree in Photographic Technology. 

Throughout his illustrious career, Mr. Contorno has received many awards and accolades and has been recognized worldwide for his accomplishments. This year he will be considered for a feature in TIP (Top Industry Professionals) Magazine. He will be honored at IAOTP's annual awards gala at the Nashville Opryland Resort next December for his selection as Top Benefits Leader of the Year.

In addition to his successful career, David is committed to giving back to his community and actively participates in the membership drive for the United Way, assisting the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity, and supporting The Dove House Child Advocacy Center.

The President of the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP), Stephanie Cirami, stated: "Choosing Mr. Contorno for this honor was an easy decision for our panel to make. He is inspirational, influential, and a true visionary and thought leader. We cannot wait to meet him and celebrate his accomplishments at next year's gala." 

Looking back, David attributes his success to his perseverance, work ethic, and the mentors he has had along the way. When he is not working, he enjoys boating and traveling.
