ROCKVILLE, MD, April 27, 2022 – Insurance Marketing Center (IMC), a leading wholesale producer of group and individual employee benefits insurance products, announced that they have named John Parafinczuk as Agency President.

Throughout Parafinczuk’s career, he has been a leader in designing custom solutions for complex benefits clients. For the past eight years, Parafinczuk has worked at three of the top-ten insurance agencies in the U.S., producing and managing employee benefits books of business. He brings his vision, energy, and passion to IMC, where he will help deepen existing broker partner relationships and cultivate new partnerships that provide growth for the firm.

“My goal is to enhance the tools, resources, and processes we offer to our agency partners, which will increase the value they provide to their clients. This will help propel IMC toward becoming a preeminent specialty insurance wholesale provider in the Mid-Atlantic region,” said John Parafinczuk. He continued, “No two businesses operate the same way, top to bottom; therefore, no benefit packages should be offered to clients as a one-size-fits-all approach.”

During the search for a new president, Matt McDevitt, President of AgentLink, served as acting president of IMC. McDevitt stated, “After interviewing multiple candidates for Agency President at IMC, everyone immediately knew that John was the right person for the job. His extensive knowledge and background in the insurance industry made it an easy decision. I look forward to working with John and feel very comfortable passing the torch. The IMC staff and the agents they serve are definitely in good hands.”

Parafinczuk’s focus includes advancing IMC’s mission of working with their broker partners to create cutting-edge, custom benefits packages that deliver robust, economical options for organizations. Ultimately, IMC targets benefits solutions that can assist organizations in attracting and retaining high-caliber employees.

IMC is part of the Accretive Insurance Solutions family of wholesale and specialty insurance agencies. David Wetzler, Executive Vice President of Employee Benefits for Accretive, stated, “We are very excited that John is joining the IMC team. His leadership and energy will help us continue to foster our innovative and customer service-focused culture.”
