As Chief Business Officer and Co-Founder of RetireeFirst, Gian is responsible for the development and implementation of our overarching business initiatives. These include identifying new market segments, strategic partnerships, and company-wide organization structure. Gian pioneers measurable strategies that continue to bolster RetireeFirst’s position as a leader in the Retiree Healthcare Marketplace.

Gian grew up in a proud, third-generation union household. This upbringing instilled in him the significant value of healthcare benefits in enabling union retirees to enjoy a healthy, happy, and fulfilling retirement. To that end, he plays an instrumental role in ensuring that all RetireeFirst employees are fully engaged in our shared responsibilities of delivering superior solutions and services to our clients, partners, carriers, and retiree members.

Prior to RetireeFirst, Gian began his career working in a Health & Welfare Fund in Philadelphia. He holds multiple board seats and is passionate about helping his community by bringing awareness to diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. He is fully licensed and certified in Life & Health Insurance and attended college at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. Gian resides in Southern New Jersey with his wife and 2 children. In addition to serving his community, he enjoys traveling with his family and, while he loves all sports, golf is his passion – when he can find the time for it.
