benefitexpress hires Cosmo D'Aquila 

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. — benefitexpress™, the leading provider of cloud-based technology software and services for employee benefits administration, announced today that Cosmo D'Aquila has joined its sales team as regional sales executive for the west coast territory. In this role, Cosmo will develop strategic, consultative relationships with benefits administration leaders at mid-market employers, health insurance brokers at leading insurance firms, and benefits technology search consultants to deliver cloud-based benefits enrollment software and high-touch administration services to the market.

D'Aquila is an industry veteran with 20+ years of experience consulting clients in the western territory in the global HCM, payroll and benefits administration space. Most recently, he was a senior account executive for the west coast at Alight Solutions, specializing in cloud services for Workday and HR strategy. Previously, he managed the west and central U.S. territories for IBM Global Services, building and expanding strategic alliance relationships with Workday, Ultimate Software and other partners in the HCM ecosystem.

In addition to consulting buyers on benefitexpress' point-solution benefits administration offerings, D'Aquila looks forward to helping employers and broker clients extend the value of their current HCM system by integrating with the My Benefit Express™ platform and taking advantage of its industry-leading client services team.

“Cosmo is a natural addition to the benefitexpress team because he strives to deliver excellence and help his clients achieve outstanding value in their business,” says Melanie Hallenbeck, chief growth officer, benefitexpress. “In addition, his extensive knowledge of HCM systems will allow him to solve for a unique set of integration challenges many clients in our market have when considering or formally evaluating a new benefits administration partnership.”
