Ludwig Leads Association for Third Party Benefit Administrators as Chairman

(Chevy Chase, MD) – The Society of Professional Benefit Administrators (SPBA) is pleased to announce that Eric Ludwig will serve as the Chairman of the Board of Directors for a one-year term. Ludwig currently serves as President and CEO with Interactive Medical Systems (IMS) and has been an active member of SPBA for 21 years. SPBA represents Third Party Administration (TPA) firms from across the United States that manage client employee benefit plans.

Ludwig brings a unique set of knowledge, insight, and hands-on experience to the Chairman leadership role. “It’s an honor to be elected to this position,” Ludwig shared.  “SPBA works tirelessly to keep TPA Members abreast of the most current information on regulatory, compliance, and many other issues – and to be a part of this valuable resource to the TPA industry is a wonderful opportunity.”

“We are excited to have Eric Ludwig serve as the Chairman of the SPBA Board of Directors,” said Anne Lennan, SPBA President.  “His breadth of experience in the industry will be a great asset to our organization.”

Since 1975, SPBA has been the premier resource for TPAs, as well as for Service Partners and Stop-Loss Partners to learn about the key regulatory and legislative issues that impact their businesses. It is a critical forum to engage in dialogue with key opinion leaders about these issues, and a sounding board for those who write and enact employee benefit policies. SPBA’s team works to share breaking news, analysis, and critical information that its members need to guide their clients, brokers, and other partners.

SPBA’s Board includes nine Directors representing TPA member firms, and an emerging professional member representative.
