The Starr Conspiracy Awards Company with 2016 InfluenceHR Brand Velocity Award

CHICAGO – (November 17, 2016) – It’s a good time for Chicago-based teams, from baseball to HR technology.  Maestro Health™, a leading all-in employee health and benefits company, has been named the 2016 InfluenceHR Brand Velocity Award winner in the Benefits category by The Starr Conspiracy. Maestro Health was chosen based on its proven demonstration as one the most powerful and fastest-growing HR technology brands in the industry.

“At the core of our brand, products, and passion is people – those that we serve through our customers and those that make up our team,” said Lauren Metsig, Maestro Health CMO. “Consumers and employers are faced with making overwhelming decisions as they take ownership of their health and wellness. This award signals our brand’s unique ability to address these challenges head-on with an approach that is both personalized and authentic.”

This achievement marks the company’s fourth award in 2016. Earlier this year, Maestro Health took home the prize for the following:

“We’ve invested a lot of time and passion around the changes needed in the health and benefits industry, in order to meet each employers’ unique needs in the most powerful way possible,” said Rob Butler, Maestro Health founder.  “The thoughtfulness behind our technology-meets-service approach is what I hope will continue to propel us toward success.”

While technically a startup, the deep healthcare experience of the company’s executive team, coupled with talent from outside the industry, has created a unique recipe for success. Boasting over 100 years of leadership in healthcare, Maestro Health takes equal pride in the number of non-healthcare people on its team; an approach which has helped the company simplify and modernize its solution in a traditionally complex market.

“Market research is integral to our business, and affords us a unique view into HR tech’s innovators,” said Steve Smith, partner and chief of The Starr Conspiracy Intelligence Unit. “Maestro Health’s signature benefits technology platform, maestroEDGE, combined with the company’s rapid growth and award-winning culture, made it a clear choice for this year’s award.”
