Chief Compliance Officer & Agency Control Officer
Jeff joined Strategies for Wealth in 2011 as Chief Compliance Officer and Agency Control Officer after spending a majority of his career working in supervisory and management roles maintaining oversight for compliance areas at The Guardian Life Insurance Company and New York Life.
Jeff's current responsibilities include supervisory oversight of the Broker-Dealer and Insurance compliance programs for Strategies at both our Rye Brook and Wall Street locations as well assisting in other areas of our business related to business facilitation and operational risk management.
Prior to entering into the field of compliance, Jeff was a successful stock and bond broker and sales manager cultivating private client relationships at two Wall Street boutique firms including managing accounts for professional athletes.
Jeff credits his formidable sales experience with providing a unique perspective and foundation that enables him to understand and relate to the everyday issues and needs of Strategies' Associates, and has long believed that compliance and sales programs built on integrity, transparency and trust, invariably create a culture and environment where Associates can compete and succeed in both the ever-changing regulatory and business environments in which Strategies has successfully operated for over 77 years.
Jeff graduated in 1995 from Hofstra University with a BA in Speech Arts and Sciences and concentration in Public Speaking. While at Hofstra, Jeff was a proud member of the Manchester House Fraternity. Prior to attending Hofstra, Jeff attended and played college baseball for two years at the College of Staten Island where he played first base (the same position that his father played while attending the school in years prior).
An avid sportsman, Jeff enjoys playing golf, touch football and bocce, and maintains a passion for travel, cooking, and spending time with family and friends.
Jeff lives in Connecticut with his wife Lynda, children Celine and Tristan, and Pugs Lola and Paulie.
