HealthJoy Co-Founder Named to “40 Under 40”

by | Nov 13, 2019 | Company News

HealthJoy’s Co-founder and CEO Justin Holland was recognized as one of the year’s top Chicago business leaders. Justin was named to Crain’s Chicago’s “40 Under 40,” an annual list of the city’s brightest business minds.

The “40 Under 40” shortlist was handpicked to reflect the diversity of Chicago’s business community and highlight the accomplishments and contributions of its leaders. Over its storied 30-year history, Crain’s Chicago has singled out leaders like President Barack Obama, Oprah, Chance the Rapper, and Chef Stephanie Izard.

“I’m honored to have been selected for the “40 Under 40,” especially given the incredible accomplishments of the other winners,” Justin said. “HealthJoy’s impressive benefits experience platform is changing the conversation around employee healthcare and benefits. We are making a huge difference in lowering healthcare costs while keeping things simple. This award is purely a reflection of the entire team’s accomplishment.”

Justin, a graduate of MIT, is a serial entrepreneur who had three major exits before founding HealthJoy. Prior to starting HealthJoy, Justin founded OpenInstall, which was sold to AVG; and FreeCause, which was sold to Rakuten.

In the Crain’s profile, Justin highlighted how refreshing it is to build a company that will succeed because of its ability to change lives.

“It’s different being able to come into work every day and, ultimately, our company’s future and growth depends on how much we help people. That’s an easy thing to get behind,” Justin said.
