The K2 Advisors Group is a team of experienced, passionate professionals that know it's possible to make employee healthcare benefits actually beneficial.
We have years of experience working with businesses that want to take care of their employees AND control costs.

By using proven tactics, our innovative approach, and a carefully curated network of trusted partners, we help our clients spend less money and offer better benefits.
That's the K2 Advisors Group difference.
Everything we do is filtered through Our Why.
It keeps us laser focused on what matters.

How do we do that?
By transforming conventional employee healthcare benefits into innovative, modern solutions that impact two of the most important areas in a person's life - their health and their wallet.
What do we commit to delivering?
Leading-edge employee healthcare programs that save money AND improve the quality of care.

Founder and CEO
Health Rosetta Certified
After 22 years in the healthcare arena, John has seen it all. Including a broken neck with a $275,000 medical bill (he was able to get reduced to $62.4K for the employer) and a 10X upcharge for the anti-venom on a backyard snake bite (fought and won with a refund of $32,860). Seeing firsthand how people were impacted by the current healthcare system, he decided to channel his deep experience to create real change... and K2 Advisors Group was born.
John not only believes that healthcare should be affordable, but he knows how to make it happen.
When not fighting the good fight, you'll find John playing sports with his kids, cooking with his talented wife, or scaling mountains around the world. After summiting Kilimanjaro twice, once with his son and daughter to raise funds and awareness for a medical clinic in remote Kenya, John is currently planning to summit Denali.
Founder & Partner
As a founding Partner, Jim wanted to create something that actually made healthcare better for people. He loves rolling up his sleeves and jumping into a client's case to discover what is broken so it can be repaired.
Jim is at heart a man of faith and family.
Born and raised in Columbia, SC and an Upstater since 2009, he is the father of seven amazing children and the husband of an incredible wife he adores. (Jim is also a pet dad to two adorable pups that get to visit the office with him.)
Jim's favorite quote comes from his father: "That's no mountain for a climber."
