The company has leased space in Environmental Way, a LEED-certified office building at 1000 Louis Rose Place.
The office opening will bring about 525 jobs to Charlotte during Open Enrollment, including licensed health insurance and Medicare agents. An estimated 100 more jobs are expected to come in 2017.
GoHealth chose Charlotte “due to the impressive candidates in Charlotte and the neighboring community,” said CEO Clint Jones. “By opening this new office, we continue to invest in technology, our customers, and most importantly, our employees.”

Benefits to Charlotte and NC
A GoHealth spokesman said that the enthusiasm surrounding this project from the city and its leadership were instrumental in determining GoHealth’s new location.
NC Insurance Commissioner Wayne Goodwin said that Charlotte will benefit from GoHealth’s new Charlotte office and employment opportunities. “Charlotte continues to see immense economic growth, and GoHealth’s choice to invest in North Carolina means even more opportunity for our talented residents,” Goodwin said.
