Alex Frommeyer is the CEO of Beam Benefits, a digital-first employee benefits company that offers dental, vision, life and disability services. Alex was interviewed by Ron Rock, Senior Director at JobsOhio, a private nonprofit corporation designed to drive job creation and new capital investment in Ohio through business attraction, retention and expansion efforts.
Alex, what are some of the most recent accomplishments that you’ve had at Beam?
“We've had a phenomenal year. We started off with plans to add around 100 new Beamers to the team, which we've successfully done. We moved into a new office space as well, and we’re getting ready to introduce that. The headline at Beam is that we introduced a series of new products all under the banner of a slightly different, but, very important brand name. Beam historically has been known as Beam Dental. About 90 days ago, we reintroduced ourselves as Beam Benefits.
This is so exciting because it was coupled with the launch of new products that allow us to speak to the future of our business by modernizing all employee benefits for small to medium-sized businesses around the country. Whereas previously we had been laser-focused on modernizing dental insurance, our success in that arena opened us up to seeing a new opportunity and helping small businesses solve a new problem: all of their benefits need to be digitized and modernized to meet the changing needs of today's workforce. We're really excited to have new products and a broader approach to employee benefits that also aligns with the industry's recognition that benefits have arguably never mattered more than they do right now.”
