Leadership Team

Brian Husowitz

Founder & Chief Executive Officer

Brian is the Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Andus Health Benefits. Brian spent over a decade as an accomplished benefits broker advising publicly traded and large privately held companies how to contain the cost of their health insurance programs. From that experience, Brian developed a deep understanding of the key components of a benefit plan, how to navigate insurance markets effectively, and how to utilize data to improve outcomes.

Sensing a significant void in the marketplace where small business owners were in a constant struggle to mitigate ever increasing costs, Brian left the broker world behind, took a leap of faith, and started Andus Health Benefits from an office in his basement.

Fast forward from humble beginnings until now, Andus is thriving with 15 employees and a new state of the art office in Conshohocken, Pa. Brian attributes the rapid growth of Andus to a unique and proven purchasing model centered on the needs of each individual client. Working directly for clients and not insurance carriers or agencies effectively aligns our incentive system with our clients, thereby eliminating many of the conflicts of interest and lack of transparency that exist in the carrier-broker model. We are proud to say that we disrupt the status quo and deliver results in a world where employers have been conditioned to accept poor outcomes. Brian resides in Conshohocken, Pa with his wife Bridget and their three sons. Fun Fact: Serves as General Manager to several fantasy football and baseball teams.
