Steve Low

Group Benefits & Retirement Consultant

As President of Zarmac Benefits Inc, Steve began providing group benefit and consulting services to small and mid-sized businesses in early 1993, and is delighted to become a partner at Marquee Benefits Inc.  

It has been the development of relationships, and the ability to participate in solving problems with clients which has been most rewarding for Steve over the years.  He is exceptionally proud of the fact that almost all of the clients Steve has worked with over the years, are still clients today!

Steve has been active in the community with a variety of functions over the years.  Most noteworthy as a Rotarian with the Muskoka Lakes Rotary Club (President at one point), and as a long serving board member with South Muskoka Minor Hockey Association (President for 4 years).

If it is winter, and outside of business hours, it would be very likely that you would find Steve refereeing a hockey game at an arena somewhere between Sundridge and Barrie.  With 31 years of experience refereeing hockey, you’d think he would be better at it by now.  In the summertime you’ll find Steve sailing on Georgian Bay, often entertaining friends and clients.

Jodi Holder

Account Manager

With over 10 years of focused group benefit and pension experience, She relishes the opportunity to build and maintain relationships and has a real passion for finding solutions to complex issues. She has assisted clients from the initial inquiry stage to implementation and employee engagement. She also lends her skills as an expert at renewal negotiations and claims analysis. 

Being an active member of the community has been an integral part of her life. Volunteering at Terry Fox Runs and other local events as well as committing to Board roles for a number of not-for-profit organizations have challenged her, and underscored the importance of clear communication, commitment and teamwork. 

In her spare time, Jodi enjoys spending time with family and friends, backcountry camping, running (slowly) and curling (poorly, though improving) but always with determination and enthusiasm.
