Paul Ashley

Vice President & Consultant

It’s a good thing Paul didn’t follow in his father’s footsteps as a world-class actor because he’s much better at creating employee experience strategies for clients. Having been in the benefits industry for nearly 20 years, Paul knows what he’s talking about when it comes to business needs. He’s known for being a connector and getting his clients to the best outcomes in the market.

As Vice President & Consultant, Paul works to create and carry the First Person vision. A leader in our sales and advisory, he not only helps clients with great strategies and outcomes but also serves as a mentor to many on our team. Paul knows his clients as well as he knows his wine and wine history (and that says a lot for this sommelier).

Paul is a graduate of Ball State University, completed his Masters in Leadership, Strategy, and Management at Michigan State University’s Broad College of Business. In addition, he holds the Certified Employee Benefit Specialist (CEBS) designation from University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School/International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plan (IFEBP) as part of the IFEBP’s Certified Employee Benefit Specialist program. In the community, Paul is the past board President of Outreach. Inc. and the Central Indiana ISCEBS Chapter. Currently, Paul is an Adjunct Professor at Butler University’s Davey Risk Management at the Lacy School of Business and serves on the LLS Indiana Executive.
