Townsquared Local Leaders
Health Insurance and Benefits
Gordon Kushnick’s Essential Benefits was founded on the simple premise of giving back to a community that helped form his first career. After close to 20 years of owning and operating restaurants, in Seattle, Gordon started Essential Benefits to help restaurant employees gain access to affordable health insurance.
As many brokers and agents ran from the Affordable Care Act, Gordon embraced it and dove headlong into the morass that is the Washington Healthplanfinder system. Health insurance is one of those things where a little bit of knowledge and a bit too much confidence can lead to a horrible decision.
Gordon works to solve the insurance puzzle. Whether it’s employee benefits, life or disability insurance or just health insurance for one person, Essential Benefits is here to help.
We collaborate with local leaders from our small business communities to draw on their knowledge, tools, and resources. Whether it’s partnering with us to present information at a Townsquared event, hosting a webinar, posting helpful advice, or chiming in on an active conversation with other small business owners on our platform, Local Leaders play a key role in helping all small businesses succeed.
