President and Founder of Group Benefits Partners
Reliable, trustworthy, knowledgeable and resourceful are adjectives clients use to describe Leen Ghandour, President and Founder of Group Benefits Partners. From billing clerk to medical underwriter, then supervisor, Leen moved to a career in sales and then management. 30+ years in the insurance industry provided a strong foundation to build her own successful firm and know how to do it differently for the benefit of clients.
Leen’s high level of integrity, strong customer relations and vested interest in her clients’ success establishes the values that drive superior service focused on the best-interest of the client. As a sharp mathematician focused on the numbers, a creative thinker who discovers unique solutions and a relentless researcher who finds answers, it’s not a surprise that Group Benefits Partners is thriving in an industry of constant product, legislative and pricing changes.

"I have never had someone work harder to better our situation"
Our company had been working with the same agent for over a decade. Each year we were presented with a higher bill without explanation or options.
We were introduced to Leen and I have never had someone work harder to better our situation. She invested a tremendous amount of time and effort to perform a search of the market and presented us with at least 4 choices. With all the changes triggered by the ACA most employers and employees are met with frustration and confusion. Leen and her staff have always been there for us to explain, correct, instruct and help us navigate waters that we could not manage on our own. She is a tremendous resource - a true partner and she does it all with a friendly smile.
"They have never let us down"
I have had the pleasure of dealing with Leen Ghandour Hillas with Group Benefits Partners and her staff for about 1 year now. They were supporting Dynomax Inc. prior to my taking on the position of Human Resource Manager at Dynomax Inc.
I can modestly state that they are extremely easy to work with, support the Dynomax group with respect to sourcing vendors for our group benefits as well as dealing with questions regarding benefits.
Additionally they support us with back office support on all enrollment and claim related issues.
Leen and Chris are absolutely fun and enjoyable to work with. They always make us feel as if we were the most important client even though they may have several others they are juggling with on a daily basis. They have never let us down and are very responsive to all the needs we have and have gone above and beyond assisting us in other areas they have exposure to.
"There was no better path to take than to trusting you to solve our medical insurance dilemma"
The year started with TPS searching for a path to secure medical coverage for our company, as we had been notified that the coverage in place would not be renewed. The many paths we took trying to remedy this situation led to a referral to you.
What a stroke of luck for us as you were able to lead us through the maze of possibilities and offer many different levels of coverage through a number of different providers. Most important were your opinions on how to best structure the different plans to suit the needs of the business and its employees.
Once we selected a provider, the help and guidance that you and Christine provided in the application process for coverage as well as guide us through the enrollment process further reinforced our feelings that there was no better path to take than to trusting you to solve our medical insurance dilemma.
Now months down the road, with things running smoothly, and with your help and guidance just a telephone call away, I would like to thank you for everything, and look forward to a long prosperous relationship.
"GBP analyzed their situation, proposed options, and implemented a solution that they were happy with"
I encouraged one of my clients to work with Group Benefits Partners when they were struggling with how to implement a new health insurance plan for their employees.
With a limited budget, they needed help exploring what options were available in the marketplace that made sense for the demographics of their workforce.
GBP analyzed their situation, proposed options, and implemented a solution that they were happy with. Their service following implementation continues to be outstanding, and we appreciate the opportunity to work with GBP as we support the HR needs of this valuable client.
"I would highly recommend Leen as your representative for all your insurance and benefits needs"
We are working successfully with Leen Ghandour Hillas for over twenty years, founder of Group Benefits Partners. She had answered many of our questions regarding Health, Dental, Vision and Long and Short Term Insurance and Benefits, successfully shopping for the best rate, never losing a focus to serve and help the customer.
She has great personality and very easy to work with. On behalf of this organization I would highly recommend Leen as your representative for all your insurance and benefits needs.
"I have worked with Leen for 25 years and can attest that she serves with the client’s best interest in mind"
Leen Ghandour Hillas has been working with Glenair-Microway systems for over 25 years. Leen has continually demonstrated excellent negotiation skills, industry knowledge, and resourcefulness to help find solutions with our employee benefits program, which she also helped implement.
Leen has kept us informed on industry trends and, most importantly, health care reform rules and regulations. In this area alone her work is outstanding. I have worked with Leen for 25 years and can attest that she serves with the client’s best interest in mind.
"You also made it fun while you kept me on track"
Let me say it now, thank you for all your help over the years. Not only did you make it interesting and put up with my myriad of questions, you also made it fun while you kept me on track.
