Benefit Consultants Northwest

Friday Night Expo Reception Sponsor

Benefit Consultants Northwest was started because there was a unique need in the benefits arena for a firm that would have a true philosophy of advocacy rather than brokering. Drawing together professionals from the insurance field, legal field, accounting and others, BCNW is committed to providing all the services an employer may need to adequately plan, manage and direct their employee benefits through one source.

The key staff have over half a century of combined experience covering the full spectrum of business insurance needs, including risk management analysis, plan development, flexible benefits and large association plans. We are dedicated to the principle that we exist solely to provide maximum value and service to our clients.

Our services include actuarial and health care cost analysis, strategic planning and review, negotiating contracts with insurers and providers, medical management to project large claims cost and medical large case review, legal and employee benefit services, as well as administration and customer service. A more comprehensive list of services is also included.

Delphi Technologies: Delivering today to put you ahead of tomorrow.

The automotive world is going through incredible change. The pressures of increased safety and total connectivity have never been greater. Stricter government regulations and increasing demands for fuel efficiencies, emissions reductions and electrification have created tremendous expectations to deliver on multiple, complicated fronts.

The tectonic shifts you face as part of the global auto industry demand that you have partners that can move faster than the pace of change. That can navigate the complexities and are willing to take leaps into the unknown, because that’s where success – and the greatest rewards – often reside.

A new beginning that’s focused on you.

Our automotive heritage is deep – more than 100 years in the making. The enduring entrepreneurial spirit that sparked many of the innovations, products and services you’ve relied upon over the years will continue. But with this new company will come a new beginning. New adventures. New breakthroughs.

So, as we write this next chapter in our history, you’ll see only the very best parts of the old coupled with the new. And all of it will be focused on one thing – you, our customers. This means you’ll get a team that moves faster than the pace of change in automotive powertrain management, software and controls, system integration and the aftermarket. You’ll get a global collective that masters complexity and welcomes the challenges you face every day because we don’t see them as obstacles – they are opportunities. More importantly, you get a true partner – one that believes anything is possible – when we do it together.
