Our Story

Becoming a Trusted Partner in Benefits

Mark III Employee Benefits was founded on the values of honesty, integrity, and hard work by Don Browder in 1973. Mark III is now one of the leading independent brokers for public sector clients in the Southeast representing over 300,000 public servants.
Our commitment is to provide benefits for both the employees and employers. Through an educational format, our non-commissioned benefits counselors customize plans for employees and their families based on their needs.

As an independent broker, we work for the customer and not any single insurance company so that we can provide the best products available at the highest level of customer service.  Mark III has assembled a team of expert finance officers, insurance carrier representatives, underwriters, and former top school officials. They each work for you – the employer and employee – to provide the best insurance solutions possible.

The legacy of Don Browder continues through the work of his sons – Dan, Neil, and Mark. For 50 years the customer has been the main priority and will continue to be for years to come.
