About the organization(s)

• We started in the insurance sales and technology industry in 2004 with the leadership of founder and President, John Pequeno. At the time, John was finishing his Masters degree in Computer Engineering at Lehigh University, while working for an internet startup which he had helped launch and grow since 1999. Most of John’s classmates either started their own technology companies, or went to work for one of the large technology conglomerates. However, John had a different vision. John decided to use his technology expertise to revolutionize one of the least technologically advanced industries in the world, the insurance industry. Focusing on the insurance industry allowed us to quickly develop insurance technology, products, and processes which help revolutionize how insurance business gets done. • We developed our first product in 2005 with the launch of iWebQuotes.com, an insurance marketing website. The purpose of the service was to connect clients looking for health and life insurance with experienced agents who could review the options with them. At the time, this market was underdeveloped, which allowed for quick growth of the product. We quickly identified the three important facets of growing this service which were, providing excellent technology to connect clients to agents, marketing the website effectively to attain clients, and building strong partnerships with agents which could service these clients.
