Vericred Expands Omaha Operations Following $23 Million Series B Funding

New York City-based Vericred (, a data platform powering digital experiences in health insurance and employee benefits, recently announced plans to expand operations in Omaha. The InsurTech platform, which recently completed $ 23 million in Series B funding, said the Omaha location will support the doubling of Vericred’s workforce by adding an expected 30-40 highly skilled positions in the Metro. Vericred has hired a husband and wife—Matthew Leonard and Val Leonard, both formally of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska—to lead its carrier and Omaha-based enrollment teams, respectively.

“As a technology, insurance and financial services hub, Omaha is a natural fi t to support Vericred’s growth,” said Michael W. Levin, CEO and co-founder of Vericred. “We considered locations throughout the U.S. for our enrollments operations, and landed on Omaha, because of its insurance-industry talent, its emerging startup scene and its reputation as an incubator of innovation.”

Vericred’s entry into the Omaha market was facilitated by a public-private collaborative of stakeholders, including the Greater Omaha Chamber Economic Development Partnership, a seven-county collective representing 44% of Nebraska’s population, and more than 60% of the state’s GDP.

Omaha, ranked the best city in Nebraska to get a job in 2021, according to Zippia, has outpaced the nation in fi nance- and-insurance-industry growth for the past six years, increasing at a rate of 26.2% compared to national average of 7.1%.
