Maestro Health awarded Most Innovative Company of the Year and Tech Startup of the Year bronze level Stevie Awards

CHICAGO—(July 7,2016)—Maestro Health, a leading all-in employee health and benefits company, was named a bronze winner for both the Most Innovative Company of the Year and Tech Startup of the Year categories in the 14th Annual American Business Awards.

Maestro Health was selected from more than 3,400 nominations submitted by organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry.

Founded in 2014, Maestro Health has grown to an over 300 employee-strong company with a tech-meets-service approach to help employers and employees, including customers such as the University of Texas, DISH and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona, make the most of their healthcare benefits. The Company has received $65 million in funding since its start, and continues to look for ways to make benefits more “people-friendly” by simplifying and personalizing the experience with modular and agile technology supported by a complete service model. By acquiring both Group Associates and Integra Employer Health, Maestro Health combines seasoned industry experience with enhanced technology options to respond to customer needs across otherwise disparate healthcare systems.

“We have invested and spent meaningful time thinking about the future of employee benefits and ‘where the puck will be’ and it’s beginning to pay dividends as the market shifts towards an “all-in” solution. Our convergence of benefit administration and private exchange into a modern platform that can be personalized to meet employers ‘where they are’ in their respective needs is the driving force behind our success,” said Rob Butler, Maestro Health Founder.

Building out an executive bench with over 175 collective years in the healthcare and technology spaces, including 15 years of exchange experience, 60 years of benefits administration experience and over 100 years in healthcare, the Company is known for delivering in-depth industry expertise to take on the nuances of a quickly changing healthcare landscape. These awards signal its strength and vitality to address the challenges the industry faces as consumers and employers are faced with many new decisions to take ownership of their health and wellness.

“Our name might be new, but our leadership team and their strategic vision makes Maestro Health ‘the most experienced startup’. We are grateful for the recognition as the market is full of very good competitors. Our belief is that innovation coupled with our strong service DNA will set us apart as we strive to earn the long-term trust of all our employer and broker clients that have become part of the Maestro Health culture,” continued Butler.

More than 250 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.

“The judges were extremely impressed with the quality of entries we received this year. The competition was intense and every organization that has won should be proud,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.

The Stevie Awards, named after the Greek word for “crowning,” are hosted by the American Business Awards, the nation’s premier business awards program. The honorees were recognized at a gala ceremony last month in New York.
