Altitude Client Andesa Services Celebrates 30th Anniversary

When our clients hit a milestone, we celebrate with them. So when we learned Andesa Services, based in Allentown, Pa., would be hitting its 30-year anniversary in 2013 we were ecstatic.

Altitude Marketing offers integrated marketing services, public relations and advertising agency services to companies in the Lehigh Valley and beyond.Andesa, a leading provider of software as a service (SaaS) and cloud solutions for leading life insurance and annuity carriers and brokers, was founded in 1983 as The Andesa Company. The company was a pioneer in the corporate-owned life insurance/bank-owned life insurance (COLI/BOLI) industry.

But Andesa is more than just a company serving the industry. Since its inception, Andesa leadership has worked hard to thoughtfully distinguish the company with a focus on unparalleled customer service, an employee-centric culture and unwavering core principles.

“From the very beginning, we at Andesa have understood that high ethical standards are critical to the creation of a great firm,” said John E. Walker, founder of Andesa. “In fact, I think of Andesa as a firm which has a soul. To say that a firm has a soul is to say that it has incorporated into its operating procedures strong core values, which, for us, include honesty, respect, integrity, responsibility, courage and initiative. I believe that Andesa’s success in our first 30 years is borne from these values and will continue to be the driving force into our future.”

We agree.

Congratulations, Andesa! And here’s to your next 30 years!
