Brian J. Bellware

Professional Experience

As a Consultant with Gibson and a Health Rosetta Advisor, Brian helps leaders broaden their view and set their sights on the obstacles and opportunities that really matter, so they can own every outcome.

Most leaders view health benefits with limited scope. In fact, Brian was one of those leaders, purchasing and managing employee benefits for 400+ employees in a fast-paced, growing organization. After moving into employee benefits, he’s learned through experience and education on what the core issues are and has gained invaluable insight on how to get beyond the limited scope of insurance.

Brian is one of seven Health Rosetta Advisors in Michigan, the first in Southwest Michigan, and of only 214 nationwide.
