About Us

Comprehensive Insurance Consultants (CIC) is a full service insurance broker specializing in employee benefits.

CIC was established in 1989 by R. Craig Buttrey after working in the industry for over 10 years. Craig Buttrey is a Certified Employee Benefit Specialist (CEBS) with insurance company experience in Underwriting, Administration, and Claims.

CIC has been serving Chicago area employers ranging in size from 5 employees to 750 employees. Our extensive knowledge and experience has allowed us to effectively partner with employers to design benefit plans balancing cost with coverage.

We have recently partnered with Linda Stewart to provide employee benefit services to central Florida employers.

Integrity is the driving force in how we do business. Every decision is based on what is in the best interest of the client. This ranges from promptly returning phone calls to making recommendations based on the client's needs rather than our commissions. It means being truthful even when it is not the easiest thing to do.

We believe this philosophy is what has allowed us to maintain an extraordinary retention rate with our clients. CIC still has its very first client from 1989.

Comprehensive Insurance Consultants is a full service broker. We believe our job is to assist employers in getting the most for their benefit dollars with the best possible service.

This process begins with helping to design the overall benefit package . . . what benefits to offer. It goes beyond that, however, to include plan design, market selection, funding mechanisms, contribution strategy, and tax considerations. As the benefits arena gets more complex and expensive, the need for specialists such as CIC becomes more and more critical.
