WEST DES MOINES, IOWA (December 19, 2017)– Businessolver(R), a leader in SaaS-based benefits administration technology, today announced the hire of Bruce Gillis as Strategy Practice Leader for Health, Welfare, and Compliance. Gillis brings three decades of experience in the employee benefits industry to the role, where he’ll oversee all of Businessolver’s regulatory compliance activities on its Benefitsolver(R) technology platform.
Gillis leads Businessolver’s expanded compliance services for employment and benefits laws, including ERISA (the Employee Retirement Income Security Act), HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) and the Affordable Care Act (ACA). In that capacity, he serves as the company’s HIPAA privacy officer and executes strategy and operations related to proactive health and welfare compliance monitoring. Additionally, Gillis supports Businessolver’s thought leadership in compliance relative to client service, product development, education, and risk mitigation.
“Bruce is the right leader at the right time for our company and our industry,” said Jon Shanahan, Businessolver President and CEO. “With reports that both ACA noncompliance penalties and HIPAA violation lawsuits are on the rise, his leadership will give our clients the support, information, and peace of mind that they need to be successful.”
Gillis is a veteran in the employee benefits field, with 30 years of experience across the industry – including senior-level roles at SHPS Inc., Towers Perrin Inc. (now Willis Towers Watson), and Conduent Inc. (formerly part of Xerox Corporation). Before joining Businessolver, Gillis most recently served as Health and Welfare Practice Leader at Conduent, where he was responsible for oversight of all Health and Welfare compliance support, and led the development and rollout of the company’s proprietary system for ACA reporting.
“I couldn’t be happier to join Businessolver,” said Gillis. “An already entrenched companywide commitment to quality, process excellence, and transparency makes my job infinitely easier from the outset. I’m grateful to our company leaders and my fellow Solvers for their support, and am closely aligned with them in our shared mission to grow our business and delight our clients.”
