Employee Spotlight: Alex Mechling
This month's pick for Employee Spotlight is Alex Mechling. Alex is the Senior Vice President of our Employee Benefits Division at The Fedeli Group. Keep reading to learn more about Alex's story and how he became involved in the health care industry.
1. How did you get your start in the industry?
a. I started my career at UnitedHealthcare following graduation from law school and passing the Ohio Bar Exam. My father is an attorney who pursued a career in health care. Having seen the dynamic and fruitful career he was able to forge, I entered law school knowing I wanted to pursue a non-traditional career path using my legal education. I spent six years with UHC before the opportunity to join The Fedeli Group was presented. There is nothing more personal than one’s health and the opportunity to help individuals better manage their own health care journeys has been unbelievably rewarding.
2. How long have you been at TFG?
a. I will celebrate my one-year anniversary with TFG on April 30th, 2019. My first year has been very rewarding and it is an honor to work with, and for, Umberto, our team and our clients.
3. What is the best part of your job?
a. The people. I have the privilege of encountering wonderful people each day, be it our clients or our team. I work with great people on behalf of great clients and it is why I come to work every day.
4. What are three words you would use to describe The Fedeli Group?
a. Compassionate. Focused. Innovative.
5. If you could have dinner with anyone, living or dead, who would it be?
a. Paul McCartney. He wrote “Let it Be”…that’s reason enough.
Thank you for sharing your story with us, Alex! We are fortunate to have a leader like you on our benefits team.
