HUB International Gulf South Senior Vice President Annette Dowdle is committed to simplifying the complicated world of employee benefits. While navigating the unknowns of today’s economy, Annette and her team take a modern approach to employee-centric benefits.

“We think about the benefits through the eyes of each generation we serve,” says Annette. “Needs are different for each season of life.”

As cost containment is a top priority for today’s employer, Annette is creative and strategic when shaping benefits to add value to a company’s culture. “While cost containment is as sensitive as ever, we can help find a balance of containing costs but not at the detriment of the employee,” she says.

Noting that culture plays a large part in benefits, Annette believes that offerings should be holistic, addressing the whole employee so that they can continue to be successful.

“Outside of medical, there’s a multitude of coverage options that can elevate an employee’s experience. We can structure mental health benefits, pet coverage, infertility coverage, financial wellness and guidance, paid time of, as well as career pathing,” she says.

In the community, Annette is a graduate of Leadership Louisiana, Loyola Women’s Leadership Academy, Leadership St. Tammany, and soon-to-be Leadership Jefferson. She is a member of the Committee of the 100, National Women in Construction, Women United, and Northshore Heart Walk Executives with Heart, and she serves on HUB’s National Best Practices Task Force.
