    Rosa Garcia Rinder

    Chief Operating Officer

    I joined The Difference Card because of the diversity of its team: I believe our team can make a difference in architecting a healthcare delivery system that is designed for people like us, like our families, and deliver something to market that helps employers maintain a high level of benefits for their employees while saving money.

    Rosa Garcia Rinder is the Chief Operating Officer and joined The Difference Card in 2020.

    Rosa joined The Difference Card because they are an organization that is innovative, diverse and helps employers save money on insurance while retaining high level of benefits for their employees. Rosa’s main objectives at The Difference Card are to deliver an amazing experience for our client partners, grow so that our teams can share in that, and be a great place to work.

    Rosa started her career in this industry at Choice Strategies in 2005. Rosa joined the Choice team as a member service representative and employee number 20; and within a few years rose to Director of Operations. As Director of Operations, Rosa was responsible for a team of over 100 employees and functions including, Member Services, Claims, Client Services and Implementation and Enrollment functions.

    In 2012, Choice was acquired by WageWorks and Rosa stayed on for another two years, working to bring the Choice team into the WageWorks Family. In 2015, Rosa joined Alegeus where she held roles including Director Solution Architecture and Director of Strategic Accounts. At Alegeus, Rosa worked with dozens of administrators and some of the largest carriers in the United States, helping bring to market their CDH solution.

    Rosa is originally from Queens, and grew up between there (Go Sunnyside!) and Madrid, Spain. Rosa went to college in Vermont, graduating from the University of Vermont. She loved it so much, she stayed in the Green Mountain State for 20 years- hiking, skiing, swimming! Currently, Rosa resides in Arlington, Massachusetts where she is raising a wild and fierce daughter, Ava Luna (yes, adaptation of Eva Luna from the book!) and her pug, Lucy. Rosa loves to learn, loves to run, loves to travel, loves her nieces and nephews and spending as much time with family and friends.

    Chris Calderone

    Chief Revenue Officer

    I joined The Difference Card to help employers deliver great benefits without overpaying the insurance carriers!

    Hi, my name is Chris Calderone and I am the Chief Revenue Officer at the Difference Card. I got my start in the insurance business a little differently than most people. The head of maintenance at the school I worked in was family friends with an Aetna Sales Director. That Aetna contact was married to my 3rd grade teacher, and we had gone to the same University, so we had a few connections. I enrolled in the Aetna Group School to learn the insurance business. I was drawn to The Difference Card because after working for Aetna and Anthem BCBS, I saw first-hand the excess margin on the insurance carrier side.

    The Difference Card was disrupting the middle market by giving back premium to the employer and providing great benefits for employees. My favorite part about working for The Difference Card is the commitment to the entrepreneurial spirit. Our team is constantly improving processes to make the customer experience outstanding. My proudest accomplishment is helping one of our large non-profit customers to save $5 million off their health insurance policy in their first year with The Difference Card. I am motivated by our customers. I love to learn about our customer’s business and help them to solve complex insurance problems.

    Before I was a Difference Card Difference Maker

    I was born in New York, NY and I currently reside in Mamoroneck, NY with my wife Erica, two children, Stella and Cooper, and our wire-haired Dachshund, Rigatoni. I attended the University of Notre Dame and was the captain of the club boxing team. Every year we would host an annual charity boxing tournament called the Bengal Bouts with all proceeds funding a mission in Bangladesh. My first job was a cleaner in the New York City public schools. I can still give any floor a great shine! Growing up, my favorite movie was The Mighty Ducks and I played on a travel street hockey team.

    Here are three fun facts you might not know about me:
    1. My favorite sports team is The University of Notre Dame. Go Fighting Irish!
    2. If I could travel anywhere in the world I would travel to Italy. There are so many great parts of Italy, and the food is incredible.
    3. Outside of work I love to swim and paddle board. I love being around the water!

    Taylor Britt

    Senior Director of Marketing & Sales Media

    I was drawn to The Difference Card because I loved the idea of joining a team that is working to solve the problem of the rising cost of healthcare.

    Hi, my name is Taylor Britt and I am the Senior Director of Marketing + Sales Media at the Difference Card. I was drawn to The Difference Card because I loved the idea of joining a team that is working to solve the problem of the rising cost of healthcare. My favorite part about working for The Difference Card is the people- I think some of the funniest, hardworking, creative & dedicated individuals work for The Difference Card! My proudest accomplishment is building a successful and growing Marketing Department. I am motivated every day by the good work that we do.

    Before I was a Difference Card Difference Maker

    I was born in Chattanooga, TN and I currently reside in Nashville, TN with my husband, 2 young children and our dog Nola, a 13-year-old chocolate lab. I attended Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) and graduated with a degree in Public Relations and Marketing. My first job was at Cracker Barrel where I worked as a server to pay my way through college. I can still recite the daily specials! I have many fond memories of growing up, but my favorite is of riding bikes at my grandmother’s house. When I was little, we would ride “big wheel” trikes down a giant grassy hill in the backyard at breakneck speeds.

    Here are three fun facts you might not know about me:
    1. My idea of a perfect day is a whole day spent on the beach from sunrise to sunset. I want to swim in the ocean, read a book, take a nap and watch the sunset while never leaving the beach.
    2. As a Nashville Native, the Tennessee Titans are obviously my favorite sports team! #titanup!
    3. If I could travel anywhere in the world, I would want to visit the Greek Islands. Santorini is on my bucket list!

    Ashley Dube

    Northeast Market Director

    My favorite part about working for The Difference Card is working with a diverse and very talented team.

    Hi, my name is Ashley Dube, and I am the Northeast Market Director at The Difference Card. I ended up working in the insurance business because I completed an internship with Northwestern Mutual when I was in college. Initially, I was focused on personal financial planning, but then received an opportunity to work in the Employee Benefits Department. The rest is history.

    I was drawn to The Difference Card because I love being able to offer a unique health insurance funding product to companies who are struggling to contain costs or looking to improve benefits. My favorite part about working for The Difference Card is working with a diverse and very talented team. My proudest accomplishment is how the New England Market has grown over the past seven years. I am motivated by competition. I am an extremely competitive person. I always strive to finish first in any aspect of my life.

    Before I was a Difference Card Difference Maker

    I was born in Providence, RI and I currently reside in Cumberland, RI with my husband, Steve, and our two children- Brady, who is 6 and loves sports and Brooklyn, who is 4 and loves unicorns and princesses. I graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a major in Business Management & Marketing. I loved living off campus (“down the line”) in a beautiful beach house with an ocean view. This is when I fell in love with the cute beach town of Narragansett, RI. Growing up my first job was as a Food Runner at a local restaurant when I was 15.

    Here are three fun facts you might not know about me:
    1. My idea of a perfect day is working out in the morning, hitting the beach on an 80-degree day, followed by happy hour with a cold drink in hand.
    2. My most useless talent is that I can easily memorize license plates.
    3. If I could have dinner with any person dead or alive it would have to be Kenny Chesney!
