With a background and education in small-business administration, Ed Russo has extensive experience and knowledge regarding the health insurance issues many businesses face. He began his financial career at John Hancock, where he discovered a passion for health insurance. In 2003, he became the co-founder and senior partner of The Mendham Group, an insurance brokerage firm specializing in health insurance and small-business employee benefits. Seeing the need for a greater range and diversification of services for his clients, he joined forces with Precision Financial Services in 2010 as our health insurance specialist. Ed’s expertise in Medicare Advantage plans, Medicare supplemental plans and prescription drug plans is an invaluable resource to our clients. Also, Ed is certified in the Affordable Health Care Act.
Early in 2011, Ed’s 17-year-old son, Nicklaus, was diagnosed with AML leukemia. “Nicky Joe,” as he was affectionately known, lost his battle seven months later. After his son’s passing, Ed established the “Hope for Nicky Joe Foundation,” which raises awareness and provides grants for leukemia research as well as other pediatric cancers. Ed resides in Succasunna, New Jersey, with his wife, Deborah. When not meeting with clients or promoting his foundation, Ed can be found on the golf course and spending time with family and friends.
