South Florida Business Journal - January 5, 2017


Our President and COO Jim Repp shared his expectations for 2017, alongside other South Florida executives.


Here is the excerpt:


The new [presidential] administration will bring change to our industry, but as we await greater clarity, we are keenly focused on what we can truly control. We expect to build on the 7 percent growth we experienced this year by leveraging our industry-leading customer retention rates. We will drive new customer acquisition by offering unique products that deliver a more engaging Member experience, one designed to help our Members live healthier. Further, we are committed to helping our Members across Florida celebrate a life rich in the things that truly matter: health and happiness of the mind, body and soul. To achieve this lofty goal, we will continue to offer programs, incentives and information to help AvMed Members find a mindset that few others can reach.
