Toddâ€™s vast knowledge of online insurance marketing began when he joined the Hartford Personal Lines Insurance Corporation, with a focus of developing new online marketing channels for the AARP Personal Lines Insurance Programs. Over the next several years, Todd held senior level management roles for NetQuote, Advice Company, Bankrate, and Lending Tree. Through these positions, he became an expert in building insurance content designed to leverage carrier reviews and consumer generated content to drive SEO traffic, stabilizing and stimulating revenue and profit growth, and culminating successful acquisition programs.
With the desire to launch his own online insurance marketing company, Todd co-founded Distinct Leads. Distinct Leadsâ€™ cutting edge ping-post acquisition website supported several strategic carrier and agent buyers, with the intent to use third party and end-to-end data analytics to enable results based lead procurement.
As the healthcare industry shifted and commenced state based health exchanges, Todd joined Insurance Care Direct as their Head of Business Development to generate new acquisition partnerships and strategies in the consumer health market.
By 2014, Todd teamed with Hometown Quotesâ€™ co-founders Jon Kelly and Bob Klee as their President and Chief Revenue officer. Toddâ€™s utmost goal is to continually shape Hometown Quotes as the highest respected provider of high quality, productive insurance leads to local â€œhometownâ€ agents.
