"I have had the pleasure of knowing Joel for many years and have also done some work with him. Joel is a consummate professional whose honesty and integrity cannot be questioned. He knows the Federal health market well, especially the Department of Veterans Affairs, where he has achieved multiple successful awards. Joel is very skilled in business development strategy and execution but more importantly he takes the time and effort to truly understand a client or potential client's business challenges along with solutions options. Joel is also an innovative and strategic leader who has achieved outstanding results for a number of firms, leveraging key partnerships both within his companies and with other vendors to achieve success. I highly recommend Joel as a strategic advisor to any company that is looking to grow or expand their Federal health business."

Tony Trenkle 

Former Chief Information Officer

"Joel Horwitz is an exceptional professional who fosters a partnership approach when resolving issues and developing potential solutions.  I have worked directly with Joel since 2015 and have experienced first-hand how he operates.  During the Department of Veterans Affairs acquisition of a new automated healthcare claims processing system, he truly took the time to understand our requirements, helped us understand what industry could offer, and never lost sight of the interests of Veterans.  Joel helped our team bridge communication gaps between Government program managers and industry, which led to a better industry understanding of the government’s requirements.  I sincerely appreciate Joel and his efforts and whole-heartedly recommend him.”
