Protecht honored as finalist at High Tech Innovation Awards in Newport Beach

OCTANe recognizes Orange County-based ticket insurance firm for its suite of solutions

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (Sept. 19, 2019) – Protecht was recognized as a finalist in the Consumer Product category at the 2019 OCTANe High Tech Innovation Awards (HTA) on Sept. 12, 2019.

 Each September the HTA recognizes and honors companies that have demonstrated innovation in the Orange County area in nine award categories. Protecht, which provides event ticket and registration insurance to consumers, was honored as one of the four finalists at the Balboa Bay Resort award ceremony. 

Coming off the exciting win of 2019 Best Places to Work, Protecht was honored to be recognized for its incredible product suite in a consumer product category. Protecht passed a nomination process before advancing to the finalist portion.

After advancing, Protecht underwent a “judging day” which consisted of an office visit and an interview process with the judges of the OCTANe High Tech Innovation Awards. 

Protecht President and CBO Casey Callinsky describes the award ceremony as “another great moment of pride for the entire team.” When discussing his team at Protecht, Callinsky added, “We focus on our tasks, we solve the new equations being presented, we discuss and plan the future and with that focus we can continuously strive to serve our community with the best product and innovations.”

In 2018, Protecht was also honored by Efma/Accenture for Innovation in the insurtech industry in a ceremony in Boston. This accolade from OCTANe continues Protecht’s designation as a technological innovator and pioneer for the growing insurtech industry.
