Congratulations to the 2014 Hot 100 benefits managers

We introduce you to our latest Hot 100 benefits managers (listed in strict alphabetical order).

Debi O'Donovan

These are people who, during 2013, were featured in our magazine or on our website for the great work they are doing with their organisations’ benefits packages; or people who have spoken at our events or taken part in our roundtable discussions; and those who have judged or won gongs at the annual Employee Benefits Awards in 2013.

For the most part, we have deliberately selected people who were not on previous years’ lists in order to spread the recognition as wide as possible for the good work that is done for millions of employees across the land. However, this year we have also included selected individuals who have featured in previous years’ Hot 100. This is because they have continued to blaze a trail for great work within the industry and have demonstrated ongoing support for Employee Benefits throughout 2013.

We wish our 2014 Hot 100 group all hearty congratulations and a very big thank-you for your contributions to the industry.

Along with the 2012 Hot 100 and 2013 Hot 100 groups, this 2014 line-up of leading benefits managers and directors make up our 100 Club.

This year, we plan to work harder to tap into the expertise contained within the 100 Club and to build this community. As stated by our 100 Club sponsor, Lorica Employee Benefits, the people on the Hot 100 list face huge challenges. So, the more we can share and spread lessons, the better for the industry as a whole.


We have already started by running a column written by a different 100 Club member each month. There is an associated, active LinkedIn group, which is members-only and supplier-, adviser- and sponsor-free. This enables 100 Club members to ask questions and get advice from each other. And we have other 100 Club plans in the pipeline.

I would like to take this opportunity to extend a special thank-you to Employee Benefits’ deputy editor, Debbie Lovewell-Tuck, who put a tremendous amount of work into pulling this list together.

We would also like to extend a very important thank-you to our sponsor, Lorica Employee Benefits, for backing the 100 Club. We at Employee Benefits are now working with Lorica to develop more thought leadership coming out of the 100 Club.

A big thank-you and congratulations to you all!
