CEO and Founder Anthony P. Solazzo acknowledged and congratulated his team for the achievement, and promised better service to customers: 

Our team is responsible for this success, and I continue to be very proud of what we have accomplished as a result of the work they have done.  This recognition is proof of the team’s commitment to the company’s mission: acting as an advocate for consumers nationwide with commitment, dedication and expertise. 

We at e-TeleQuote recognize how the myriad of choices make it difficult for consumers to efficiently assess and select their healthcare options.  We remain committed to working with Medicare beneficiaries to help identify plans that meet their specific needs and share plan information transparently, in a consumer advocate and carrier agnostic fashion.  The addition of our second facility in Brooksville, FL to that already operating in Clearwater, FL is further validation of our model and the value we bring to consumers in that important decision making process. 

According to Forbes, 90 percent of all startups fail.  We have been among the fortunate 10 percent.  Not only that, we are among the few companies who have reached this far in a very short period of time.  We are sure to take this encouragement as a promise to serve our clients better, and in turn serve our company better!  We look forward to both in the years to come.
