Our story.

Highway's co-founders, Mick & Cory

Meet our founders: Mick MacLaverty & Cory Micheel

Mick MacLaverty and Cory Micheel are the co-founders of Highway Benefits. Although they officially founded the company in 2021, Highway’s origin story began much earlier.

Highway began when Mick and Cory first met at UCLA Anderson.

Knowing all too well the burden of student loans, Mick and Cory sought out a viable solution to the massive crisis and Highway was born. They decided to start with student loan matching as a benefit as it solved employers’ top concern of workforce retention, while simultaneously addressing one of the US workforce’s largest financial concerns.
