Prospero came to life, just as most dreams do… by planting a seed. Dean Forman, the founder of Prospero Benefits Group, started cultivating this seed in the early 1980s. Armed with an extensive education in business and finance, Prospero took root as he entered the employee benefits and retirement planning arena.
Planted firmly in the soil of timeless values such as loyalty, integrity, dedication, and good old fashion hard work, Prospero grew into something much greater than just one man. Prospero came to life, its branches and leaves as tangible as the landscape around us, delivering not only financial security to businesses and individuals, but long-term prosperity in every sense of the word.
As the saying goes, “A man doesn’t plant a tree for himself. He plants it for his posterity.” Today Prospero’s reach and strength as a leading brokerage has been augmented by Dean’s sons who eagerly joined the team over the past two decades. The family ties run deep, bringing to the table a fortitude and comradery that can be felt, enjoyed, and relied upon by every Prospero client. Time-tested principles have grown together with the new age, leveraging the most modern technologies to effectuate employer efficiencies, encourage employee and individual self-reliance, and create an all in one solution that is in a perpetual state of improvement.
With so many years in the industry, our firm has seen it all, the ups and downs of the financial industry, the market entrance and exit of the biggest and smallest insurance companies and physician groups, and the boom of technology and its indispensable application to how we all do business and live our everyday lives. All these years and all this change has taught us to adapt, and to find solutions that fit client needs, whether in times of peace or crisis.
