McGriff welcomes Black to Employee Benefits division

March 17, 2022

McGriff today announced that Eric Black has joined the organization as Employee Benefits practice leader for its Charlotte office. The 20-year employee benefits veteran will focus on production, revenue growth, client retention, recruiting and training.

Black is joining McGriff from another national broker where he served 12 years as area president for North Carolina. In that role he managed a team of benefit professionals who delivered employee benefits solutions to both fully insured and self-funded clients throughout the Southeast. Previously, he served eight years as a group representative at Meridian Benefits, an ancillary benefits wholesaler.

“We are excited to welcome Eric to our growing Employee Benefits division in Charlotte,” said Jon Trevisan, National Employee Benefits practice leader for McGriff. “His expertise in growing top-line revenue while building out an effective client service model, recruiting a strong team of subject matter experts, and leading a consulting and sales team will certainly be an asset to our team and the companies with whom we work.”

Black earned his bachelor’s degree in sociology from East Carolina University. He serves on the board of advisors for the Brantley Risk and Insurance Center at Appalachian State University.
