September 26, 2013ROSWELL, Ga. — ColibriumDirect LLC, health plan sales and business process outsourcing provider, is expanding into the City of Roswell and bringing with it 400 full-time jobs and a $3 million investment.
The company will hire senior managers, licensed insurance agents, IT administrators, software developers, database engineers, call-center representatives and licensed health insurance agents. The company, which expects $25 million in revenue next year, has leased a 35,000-square-foot building in Roswell.
"I am very proud of ColibriumDirect's achievements to date and the opportunities that we are bringing to Roswell and the Metro Atlanta area," said Mark Poling, Co-Founder and CEO at ColibriumDirect. "We are excited to be a part of the growing Roswell business community and to provide careers that will have a positive impact on the future of healthcare."
ColibriumDirect's services helps carriers, such as Centene Corp. and BlueCross BlueShield of Georgia, market plans to the millions of Americans soon to be eligible for health insurance under the Affordable Healthcare Plan. Demand from health-care insurance providers is expanding rapidly because of the new law. Insurance carriers are turning to service providers such as ColibriumDirect to help them win those new members, and handle the barrage of coverage and financial questions the newly insured will have.
Roswell Mayor Jere Wood welcomes the new company and the jobs it will bring to Roswell. "Another great company is locating in Roswell. In the last nine months, the RBA and the City of Roswell working together have brought more than 3,000 high-paying jobs to our community. Roswell is not only a great place to live and raise a family it is also becoming a great place for business."
RBA Executive Director Steve Stroud said, "ColibriumDirect is a perfect example of the quality jobs we are attracting to Roswell. The workforce these jobs create is a key component to the City's Strategic Economic Development Plan (SEDP) that is currently being implemented by Roswell Business Alliance, through a public private partnership. Roswell, along with all of North Fulton, is focused on attracting key employers with good jobs to ensure sustainable growth as we move into the future of our cities."
