About Us

In the insurance industry, depth of experience matters – and there is perhaps no team with the level of expertise in data analytics, and unparalleled industry insights, than Confianza.  Members of the Confianza leadership team are not only trailblazers in the insurance industry, but have served in multiple senior executive roles – building the strong contacts, and valuable relationships, proven to enhance the way insurance companies today do business.

The idea behind our product came from longtime insurance industry leader John Petricelli (who now serves as Confianza’s Chief Product Officer), who with more than 30 years of experience developing insurance products and numerous high-profile roles in the insurance industry, developed a unique technology platform to secure and summarize data from more than 700 million consumer records, and provide insurance professionals with a single point of entry for all information sources.  After creating this platform, Petricelli then sought out top experts with many years of experience to join him in creating, and leading, the company – launching Confianza in 2020 … and immediately revolutionizing the way insurance professionals gain the vital data they need to provide more opportunity for expanded sales and customer retention.

At Confianza, not only is the difference in our data, it’s in our team. Call us today for a complimentary consultation, and see for yourself the difference we can make for your business.
