Bruce has designed benefits and total compensation for self funded and fully insured manufacturing and services organizations.  He has benchmarked benefits and employee return on investment using compensation modeling. He has written summary plan descriptions with ASO and PPACA certification guidelines and integration of welfare benefit retirement planning. 

Bruce has held leadership positions in multiple industry sectors, such as CFO, Controller, Finance and Accounting Manager, and Human Resources Manager, in division, subsidiary and corporate headquarters.  He has planned for expansions, developed and implemented new systems in the US and abroad, improved budgets and policies, and created dashboard reporting for senior level review of key indicators. Bruce believes that being a team player with sales and marketing executives results in expansion of product goals and market share.

Bruce earned a BS from the University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire and has held credentials of CPA for over 20 years.   He is currently a US Treasury Enrolled Agent and Certified Employee Benefits Specialist credited by the International Foundation of Employee Benefits.  Bruce's licenses include Minnesota Life, Health, Disability, Property and Casualty Insurance, and Financial Regulatory Investment Series 6 and 63. He was formerly a Premium Compliance Specialist at H&R Block Premium Office serving the Greater Minneapolis Metro Area.  He is the manager of Knoll Tax Service LLC in Brooklyn Center, MN as well as owner of private consultancy Lyon-Dugin & Associates LLC.

A CPA called one day and said, "My client's Health Reimbursement Plan is not compliant with the Department of Labor."  Being a Certified Employee Benefit Specialist, I was able to assist the CPA in redoing the plan so that it was ACA and ERISA compliant. There are over 600,000 CPAs in the US, but only 30,000 CEBS professionals.
