June Marie Braithwaite, CCP

Executive Vice-President

A human resources professional with more than 20 years of experience, June has worked for Uniroyal Technology Corp., Cox Target Media, and Boar’s Head with a focus on the design and administration of compensation and benefits programs. She has helped to implement comprehensive retirement benefits. These unique, cutting-edge benefit programs have proven to help retain and attract key employees. June’s experience and desire to help create an atmosphere of financial wellness for companies, small businesses, executives, and professionals make her a highly sought-after benefits consultant. June believes that great things are accomplished through sound partnerships built on trust and integrity.  In addition to building financial wellness, she is a promoter of health and fitness.  June has led a team of Wellness Champions through a program which substantially increased participation in wellness initiatives.  The increase in employee awareness played a major role in the company’s decreased benefits costs, which in turn allows a company to provide a more enhanced benefits package to include retirement programs. June is a graduate from the College of Business Administration at the University of South Florida.  She is a Certified Compensation Professional with WorldatWork, a member of SHRM and has been a speaker at the Employer HealthCare & Benefits Congress.  She has mentored former colleagues who have become successful professionals in the field of human resources.
