About Highpoint Benefits Group
For 17+ years John Tuttle had always dreamed of starting his own agency. Having worked for mid-sized insurance agencies and the third largest broker in the country, he realized that there were many other added value services being provided to large businesses with 500+ employees—why not bring those added value services to small and mid-sized companies? This became the foundation of Highpoint Benefits Group.
MJ Errante started his insurance career 10 years ago with a firm that catered to insurance agencies and John became his first client. Through the years both MJ and John kept in touch and always bounced ideas off one another. When John started Highpoint Benefits Group, MJ soon followed 8 months later. They found that their individual expertise and background complemented each other’s in surprising, and what turned out to be inseparable, ways. Technology was rapidly changing the insurance landscape. This made them eager to cultivate their own agency, one that would effectively intersect their expertise with their respective interests. They believe that what wins a client over and what makes a creative business thrive is the passion that drives it. Choosing to specialize in a field means that you are completely devoted to it; that you will protect it as if it were your own. That is the energy that sets them apart.
Highpoint Benefits Group officially opened its doors in January 2017. Since then, they now work with over 100 businesses in 7 different states ranging from 2 person businesses to 500+ employee companies with multi state locations.
