CATA Announces Hilb Group As New Recommended Consultant

The CATA is proud to announce Hilb Group as a new Recommended Consultant. Hilb Group is the go-to partner for CATA business owners who need help controlling costs and navigating the complex world of healthcare and human capital management.

Specializing in the auto dealership business for more than 30 years and serving 1500 dealerships, Hilb Group knows the industry and can help dealers pay for and manage employee benefits more efficiently. Hilb Group’s proven process collaborates dealers every step of the way to develop a customized strategy that fits your business’ unique needs. Hilb Group was built by dealers, for dealers to ease the administrative burden of employee benefits and to create pathways for you to decrease healthcare cost while simultaneously improving benefits for your employees.

The CATA Member Benefits committee, chaired by Dan Heller, Heller Ford in El Paso and Heller Lincoln & Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Pontiac, reviewed several candidates in the healthcare field and selected Hilb Group because of their overall track record and familiarity with new-car dealer operations.

“Born out of the Virginia Auto Dealers Association, the Hilb Group has experience lowering employee benefits costs while maintaining or increasing benefit offerings,” says Dan Heller, CATA Member Benefits Committee Chairman and Dealer Principal Heller Auto Group. “Hilb has helped more than 1500 new-car dealers reduce prescription drug costs by an average of 42% and medical costs by 10%-23%. Hilb Group has done this while simultaneously easing the administrative burden of employee benefits and HR.”

The Chicago Automobile Trade Association Member Benefits Committee works to establish and maintain preferred partner relationships with allied members with programs offering unique value to our dealer members and the CATA.

CATA Approved Member Partners are thoroughly reviewed by the Member Benefits Committee and have proven track records of benefiting CATA member dealers. The vendors work with the CATA to offer these programs to our entire membership. Remuneration to the CATA may also be part of these agreements.

The aim of the CATA Recommended Consultants program is to identify and recommend organizations that have a proven track record of helping dealers in areas of the business that can be particularly challenging to navigate and manage. In recognizing these organizations, the CATA believes that all dealer members can benefit from the expertise and services that the selected organizations provide. CATA Recommended Consultants are independent organizations not tied to the sales process of any individual product or service and have agreed to offer special pricing to CATA member dealers.
