Aperture Credentialing to Expand in Louisville

November 5, 2014

Mayor Greg Fischer announced today that Aperture Credentialing will remain in Louisville and expand its business, creating at least 30 new jobs following its acquisition by a Chicago based investment group.

Aperture Credentialing, originally spun out of Humana, then a part of United Health Group and now a private and independent company, verifies the credentials of healthcare professionals and facilities for health insurance carriers, healthcare provider organizations and other industry stakeholders.

“The expansion and commitment to Louisville by this leading firm is further evidence that our local economy and quality of life are strong and attractive to business,” Fischer said. “Aperture is a great fit for our city because it benefits from two of our strong and focused business sectors – Business Services and Lifelong Wellness and Aging Care.”

Aperture currently has 58 employees, and estimates it will grow by at least 30 jobs in the next few years.

“We are excited to remain a part of the Louisville community as we take over Aperture with a focus on growth within our current areas of operations as well as expansion into new areas of opportunity created under the Affordable Care Act,” said Charlie Falcone, Chief Executive Officer, of Aperture Credentialing.

After working with state economic development officials and Louisville Forward, Aperture Credentialing recently received preliminary approval for state incentives, through the Kentucky Business Incentives and Kentucky Enterprise Initiative Act, by the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority.
