Margi Jakubowski is a partner at Robert Hensley & Associates LLC, an employee benefits and wealth management firm in Greater Hartford. In addition to running the financial operations of the firm, she also heads up the employee benefits division where she works with businesses on their employee benefit needs.

Jakubowski holds a Certified Employee Benefits Specialist (CEBS) designation and is Connecticut state licensed for life and health insurance.  

What’s the biggest accomplishment your company has achieved helped by your leadership?

Our firm was recently recognized with a Best of Hartford award, which was a great honor. I take the most pride in seeing the team succeed together. This industry tends to be made up of a homogenous demographic, so I have also enjoyed hiring and mentoring the candidates who do not fit the typical mold and watching them soar.

How are you involved in the community?

I served as vice president of the Simsbury Chamber of Commerce board of directors for several years until stepping down for personal reasons. During my leave I raised money for Boston Children’s Hospital while training for the New York Marathon. Right now I am working on a project with a local children’s hospital.

What do you like to do outside of work?

Work hard, play hard! I love to keep busy on the weekends traveling, working outdoors, attending fitness classes and getting together with family and friends. Even though I work with my family we still enjoy spending time together outside of work.

Four reasons why you deserve to be a 40 Under Forty:

• Leadership — Directs a division of a leading financial-services firm as a partner and CFO.

• Community Involvement — Served on local chamber of commerce board as an officer and volunteers at local performing-arts center.

• Motivated — Committed fundraiser for many organizations, including the lead fundraiser for Boston Children’s Hospital in the 2015 New York Marathon.

• Creator — Presently working with local medical facility on a major new effort that will enhance the offerings of that facility to patients' families.

Fun Fact

Right after college I worked at a hotel in the Berkshires where I got to meet Alec Baldwin.
