As Director of Population Health & Wellbeing, Jack Bruce is responsible for supporting The Benefit Company team in developing health promotion, disease management, and wellness strategies with our clients. This includes helping employees and family members optimize care during acute health situations and effectively driving education and engaging employees in healthier lifestyles and wholistic wellbeing, creating a more engaged employee. Costs are addressed by focusing on data analytics and improving medical cost trends, reducing health risks of employees, and improving adherence with treatment and management.
Prior to joining TBC, Jack enjoyed 20 years in church ministry and administration. He previously served as the Chief Operating Officer of an Atlanta-based employee benefits firm and as the Director of Marketing for a health insurance self-funded captive. With a passion for employee wellness, and a penchant for wholistic well-being, Jack was attracted to TBC and joined our team in 2016.
Prior to being appointed as the 2016 President of SHRM-Atlanta, he served the 2,400 member organization for 10 years in several volunteer capacities. Jack is a graduate of Crown College in Minnesota and has a Masters of Divinity from Alliance Theological Seminary in New York. He holds a Georgia Life and Health License, is Self-Funding Certified through the National Association of Health Underwriters, has earned the designations of Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR & SHRM-SCP), is a member of the Gwinnett Chamber’s Human Resources Management Association (HRMA), and is a member of the United Benefit Advisor’s HR & Wellness Committee.
Jack volunteers with the Georgia Center for Opportunity, connecting employers to opportunities to help those who typically find it difficult to find employment—including veterans, the homeless, those with disabilities, returning citizens (men and women who are reintegrating into society after incarceration), and trafficking survivors. He also serves as a mentor with Tekton Career Training, which exists to serve refugees in Clarkston, Georgia through construction trades training and leadership development.
Originally from Birmingham, Alabama, Jack and his wife, Julie, currently reside in Gwinnett County. They have four grown children. Jack is a self-proclaimed jogging Clydesdale, having run his first of four marathons at the age of 50.
