No other major life insurance company has a forum where elected Agent representatives can provide suggestions to, and work collaboratively with, Company Executives.

He received a B.S. from The State University of New York at Buffalo and an M.B.A. from Northeastern University. He also serves on the United Way of Chittenden County’s campaign cabinet.
