BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Mar 17, 2015) - Borislow Insurance, a leading New England region employee benefits brokerage and consulting firm that provides strategic benefits solutions, advisory services, risk management and workplace well-being strategies, announces that Mark S. Gaunya, GBA, co-owner and Chief Innovation Officer of the company has been appointed to the Board of Directors for the Commonwealth Health Insurance Connector Authority (Health Connector) by Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker.

Gaunya is a recognized leader in the employee benefits industry and a pioneer in consumerism, health and wellbeing. He will work with the Connector Board to help Massachusetts insurance professionals, individuals, and small businesses navigate healthcare reform both at the state and national level. "I am honored Governor Baker asked me to serve on the Massachusetts Health Connector Board of Directors," said Gaunya.

This is a busy and important time in healthcare reform, and I am excited to be participating in the challenging work going forward."

Gaunya has more than 25 years of experience in the healthcare industry.

Under his leadership, MassAHU advocated for and helped to legislate the addition of the NAHU Connector Board seat that he will now occupy representing his broker colleagues all across the Commonwealth.
