Michael Owen, who founded Owen & Associates in 1998, and served as its President, has lead the company’s business strategy and growth, helping the firm surpass more than 400 clients and 200+ collaborating partners.
Part of a deliberate succession plan, his responsibilities as CEO will now be to advise and assist with the firm’s direction and continued growth, as well as client services. Additionally, Owen will take the lead on the firm’s involvement with BAN Canada.
Owen & Associates also promoted Steven Owen to President with responsibility for overseeing day-to-day operations. With more than a decade of experience, including several years in the accounting industry, Owen will focus on building upon the high-quality services and support that clients rely on for customized and innovative solutions for all their benefits needs, regardless of their location or size. He previously served as Vice President of Operations.
“Promoting Steven will bring a fresh, modern perspective to our firm and further strengthens our ability to serve the changing and evolving needs of our clients, our employees, and our community, long into the future,” says Michael Owen, CEO, Owen & Associates. “I’m looking forward to stepping back from day-to-day operations to invest my time into the firm’s over-arching business strategy, as well as becoming more involved in the industry as a whole.”
Continues Owen, “The firm is in great hands as it continues to lead in the benefits market.”
“I’m excited yet humbled with the opportunity to lead the firm in this next chapter,” says Steven Owen, President, Owens & Associates. “Our clients, many of whom are global leaders in the technology, finance, and retail industries, depend on us for guidance. As companies continue to navigate through the disruptions stemming from the pandemic, we want to play an even greater role as a trusted advisor who can step in and solve problems in all aspects of a client’s business while helping them grow and flourish.”
