Segal Names National Director of Multiemployer Consulting

The Segal Group has announced that its senior vice president and benefits consultant David Brenner has been appointed as the firm’s national director of multiemployer consulting.

“David has spent his career devoted to working with trustees of multiemployer benefits plans to help improve their participants’ health and retirement readiness,” says incoming president and CEO David Blumenstein. “He is uniquely qualified to lead our multiemployer business because of his wide-ranging knowledge of the issues, opportunities and challenges trustees currently face. We are excited to have him take on this role.” 

Brenner will be tasked with leading Segal’s Multiemployer Leadership Group. He currently specializes in consulting to multiemployer funds including health and welfare plans, defined benefit (DB) pension plans and defined contribution (DC) pension plans. He also serves on the working committee of the National Coordinating Committee for Multiemployer Plans (NCCMP).

Before coming to Segal in 1995, Brenner was a trustee of a multiemployer health and welfare fund, as well as a DB pension plan in Massachusetts. He is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and holds a bachelor’s degree with an individual concentration in labor studies. He received a Juris Doctor degree from Northeastern University’s School of Law.

Brenner succeeds Blumenstein, who will become president and CEO of The Segal Group on October 1.

The Segal Group is an independent firm of benefit, compensation and human resources consultants headquartered in New York.
