Solstice Makes Inc. Magazine Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies, Third Year in a Row

by Lauren Oakley | Sep 26, 2014

Solstice Benefits, Inc. earned a spot for the third year in a row on Inc. magazine’s Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs.  Solstice joins the ranks of other winners like Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names that gained their early exposure as members of the elite Inc. 500|5000.

“Solstice is honored to be recognized once again as one of the United States’ fastest growing companies,” said Solstice Chief Operating Officer, Carlos Ferrera. “Our company has grown exponentially in a few short years—from a staff of under 20 to one that’s five times that. We offer rich products with competitive prices in a tough economy. Recognition on the Inc. 500|5000 list is a notable accomplishment for a company that has been operating for just a little over a decade. Our ability to develop new products and remain competitive in the changing health care space along with a dedicated team focused on innovation allows us to continue to grow. It’s an exciting and rewarding journey.”

Solstice expanded and diversified its product offering in 2013 and 2014 with the creation of a private health care exchange of its own, the Solstice Marketplace, as well as ACA-qualified dental plans offered on the federal and some state exchanges.
