Newtopia Announces Executive Team Expansion in Anticipation of Rapid Customer Growth

Newtopia Adds Five Key Hires to Executive Team and Remains on Track to Hit 100 Employees by End of 2016 as a Result of Commercial Traction

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Feb 8, 2016) - Newtopia, a leading personalized health company that uses genetic testing and behavioral science to build highly personalized disease prevention plans, today announces the expansion of its executive team on the heels of a successful 2015 that brought increased commercial traction with continued growth opportunities to come.

In an effort to establish credibility within the scientific and enterprise communities, Newtopia published a yearlong randomized control trial (RCT) with Aetna Inc. in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, which is the first study to prove an employee disease prevention program can show ROI within the first year. Not only did Newtopia establish the successful trial with Aetna employees, it also secured Aetna as a channel partner that broadly offers Newtopia to all of its customers, expanding Newtopia's national reach to over 15 million potential users. Primarily focused on insurance, scientific research, engineering and grocery in 2015, Newtopia plans to expand into new verticals and capitalize on consulting, banking, finance and retail in 2016.

"We have the proof in our data and the support of incredible partners to change the disease prevention landscape," said Jeff Ruby, CEO and Founder of Newtopia. "2016 is going to be a big year for us as we look to set the standards for hyper-personalized disease prevention in the enterprise setting and grow our team. We will have 24-month results of our Aetna RCT in late 2016 that will only continue to establish Newtopia as the first and only platform to have impactful clinical and financial results for three years running on the value of offering disease prevention to at-risk employees."

Newtopia's holistic approach combines genetic testing with proprietary personalization tools, personality-matched coaches, called Inspirators, and peer-to-peer social networking to drive participant engagement and promote sustainable behavior changes. The majority of the company growth to total 100 employees in 2016 will come from the front line through Inspirators and Care Specialists.
