WorkforceTactix has acquired The Salamon Agency in Hunt Valley, Md., owned by veteran insurance agency owner and broker Stephen J. “Steve” Salamon.
Both Steve Salamon and his daughter, health insurance agent Julia Salamon, have joined WorkforceTactix at its Sparks, Md., headquarters.
Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
“Julia and I look forward to introducing the dynamic professionals and industry leading services of WorkforceTactix to our existing clients, and future ones, for many years to come,” said Steve Salamon.
During his 30-year career, Salamon has been an executive or principal with several Maryland insurance agencies, including Heritage Financial Consultants and Landmark Insurance. In addition, he has been active in politics in Maryland and with local and national trade associations representing health insurance agents, and has been a sales trainer.
Besides being a fundraiser and supporter of numerous Republican candidates and elected officials, Salamon served on and was appointed chairman of the Maryland Health Care Commission under former Gov. Robert Ehrlich, from 2004-2007.
In addition, Salamon served in many leadership capacities for both the Baltimore and Maryland chapters of the National Association of Health Underwriters. He also was active with business groups during the ramp-up and passage of the Affordable Care Act, including being a founding member of the Health Insurance Buyers & Brokers Coalition of Maryland.
Julia Salamon has been in the health insurance industry for nine years, having also worked for Landmark and Heritage Financial. She has served on the board of the Baltimore Association of Health Underwriters.
Greg Mayer, chief marketing officer at employee benefits and multiline agency WorkforceTactix, said Steve Salamon and Julia Salamon are welcome additions to the firm.
“Their involvement in the industry and their knowledge of the marketplace made this opportunity to enhance our organization an attractive one,” Mayer said.
