From Consulting and Alternative Funding to Enrollment and Claim Support

Linda Marra

Linda founded Ladmar Associates, in 1987, with the help of her friends and associates who were also developing their careers in other business sectors. Linda’s passion has always been working with people and helping them solve their issues, especially in the complicated and ever-changing field of insurance.

Linda has demonstrated the ability to be the consummate benefits specialist, achieving client specified objectives in a timely fashion and exceeding the level of organization, service and professionalism expected. She is licensed to service and sell securities, life, health, property, and casualty insurance within all states, with the exception of Alaska. Linda is someone you can trust to meet all your employee benefit challenges.

In her spare time, Linda loves spending time with her husband, son, daughter-in-law and her three grandsons – she also has an affinity for travel.

Phil Fierro

Phil has been in the insurance industry since 1996, and has been a broker since 2004. In 2000, Phil worked for one of the top 25 consulting firms in New York, and in 2003 earned the title of Top Small Group Sales Rep in the Nation for United Healthcare. In 2006, Phil founded his own brokerage company, Fierro Consulting, Inc., and a year later began working with Linda and Ladmar Associates, combining their business to form the Ladmar Group in January 2019. Both he and Linda share the same ideals and mission, which make them a great fit.

Phil’s passion for employee benefits and lengthy record of insurance industry experience provides him with the insight, skills and determination to solve even the most difficult employee benefit dilemmas. Recognizing that no one approach is the right approach for every situation, his method involves thorough reviews, diligent research and an organized, well thought out, customized strategy.

When away from his desk, Phil spends his downtime in his Melville home with his wife and two kids.
