United Agencies: Employee Benefits Staff
Partner, Employee Benefits
Dustin Barker is an Employee Benefits Account Executive who joined United Agencies since 2013. He specializes in customizing clients’ benefits packages to help employers stabilize costs, while still allowing the freedom of choice for their employees. His goal is to not only find a solution for this year’s budget but to also ensure every client is an educated and strategic consumer, who can make wise healthcare choices in any economic environment.
Prior to United Agencies, Dustin was an Account Executive at Health Net of California, where he specialized in health insurance sales for both small and mid-size businesses (2-100 employees) in Los Angeles, Ventura, and Santa Barbara counties. Dustin was one of Health Net’s top salespeople in Southern California, earning the distinction of top Account Executive for seven sales cycles, and working with a book of more than 400 clients. After five years working for a health insurance company, Dustin applied his health insurance expertise to the world of employee benefits consulting by making the transition to becoming a broker.
Born and raised in Huntington Beach, Dustin attended UCLA graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. When he’s not brushing up on the nuances of healthcare legislation, Dustin enjoys playing beach volleyball, coaching youth volleyball, surfing, hiking, and playing with his dog Hundley. He is also a huge Los Angeles sports fan, and you can catch him at the stadium or at home yelling at the T.V. during any UCLA football or basketball game. When time permits, Dustin also takes any opportunity he can to travel internationally and hopes to visit every continent one day.
