HPOne Expands Arizona Operations

Adds new facility in Gilbert in preparation for growth by year-end 2015

TRUBULL, Conn. (July 21, 2015) – HPOne announced today that it will be expanding its presence in the Greater Phoenix area with the planned opening of a new 20,000 square foot operations facility in Gilbert, Arizona ahead of significant hiring through year-end 2015.

“Our current Phoenix facility, which opened in July 2014, has been an important element in supporting the growth of our Medicare and commercial insurance support services, particularly for our west coast clients” said Bill Stapleton, founder and CEO of HPOne. “We’ve been very happy with our ability to attract and retain qualified employees in this market, so when it came time to choose a location for additional expansion, it was an easy decision to stay in the Valley.”

The Gilbert location, which is slated to open by the end of August, will serve HPOne’s member acquisition, brokerage and employer lines of business, providing marketing and sales solutions for national and regional carriers offering both Medicare and Individual and Family healthcare plans. By the end of 2015, more than 160 employees are expected to occupy the offices located at 275 E. Germann Rd, Gilbert, AZ.

“We’re thrilled that HPOne is growing its presence in Arizona by opening a second facility in Gilbert,” said Arizona Commerce Authority President and CEO Sandra Watson. “HPOne’s continued investment in our state will create hundreds of new high-quality Arizona jobs. This expansion is an excellent example of how Arizona’s pro-business environment and educated, skilled workforce foster corporate growth and success.”

“Gilbert has more than two million square feet of state-of-the art hospital and clinical research facilities. As a leading location for healthcare in the Greater Phoenix Metropolitan Area, Gilbert embraces companies like HPOne that support the community’s health services sector by providing innovative technology solutions for clients in the Medicare and health insurance marketplaces. We are glad HPOne chose Gilbert for their expansion and look forward to a continued partnership with this great company,” said Gilbert, Arizona Mayor John W. Lewis.
