2 YEC Member Companies Based in Florida Are Making Headlines

Two YECers are already making a name for themselves in 2016. One member company received a "Best Places to Work" award, while the CEO of another member company joins a prestigious board of directors. Both companies, it happens, are headquartered in Florida.

1. National Insurance & HR Consulting Group (NICG)

YEC member company National Insurance & HR Consulting Group received one of South Florida Business Journals' 2016 Best Places to Work award.

Member Zain Hasan, Founder and CEO of National Insurance & HR Consulting Group, says: "We are proud to be building such a rapidly growing company, and this is a very humbling honor to receive. Our company is focused on helping other organizations attract and retain talent, so this award demonstrates the credibility and effectiveness of our consulting services.”

Founded in July 2014, NICG was created to change how the “broker” industry worked and to develop a “Zenefits for large employers approach” offering Human Capital Management systems and expert employee benefit consulting services tailored to their specific industry, location, methodology and budget. Its services include insurance and risk management, Affordable Care Act (ACA) compliance, automated and paperless all-in-one HR systems and a niche focus on benefits for the private equity space.

Mr. Hasan's company was chosen out of over 200 organizations, topping the "Small Companies" category as a finalist, and will be honored at a festive luncheon at The Signature Grand.Visit

YECer Seth Rand, CEO of member company Rand Internet Marketing, was elected to the Board of Directors for the Better Business Bureau (BBB) of Southeast Florida and the Caribbean.

Says Rand in PR Newswire: "For more than 100 years, BBB has been a trusted source for individuals to research businesses, brands and charities to help identify who they can trust. It's a pleasure and a great honor to be able to serve on the board as well as to work to ensure that these standards continue to be met, and consumers in Southeast Florida and the Caribbean continue to have a strong voice in business."

Rand Internet Marketing offers a range of website design, web development and marketing services, including SEO, e-commerce programming, social media marketing and more to hundreds of businesses. Some of its partners and affiliates are MailChimp, GoDaddy and Symantec, to name a few.

Also noteworthy are Rand Internet Marketing's clients who are fellow YEC member companies, such as OPPORTUNITY, co-founded by member Janis Krums.

Rodney Davis, CEO of BBB, believes Rand's expertise in engaging consumers online will be a huge asset to the board, according to the PR Newswire article.
