In April of 1961, my parents immigrated to Chicago, Illinois from Calabria, the southwest region of Italy. My father, a 28-year old tailor and his new bride journeyed to the United States in pursuit of the American Dream. He opened a custom tailor shop in September of 1974, in Downers Grove and raised us four children. As a young boy, I observed him operate his business on some weekends. During conversations with my father, an entrepreneur himself, was when I developed the desire to one day become my own boss. Today, both of my parents are my greatest mentors. They have taught me the importance of character, respect, hard work and determination, not only to be a successful business owner, but also to enjoy a productive and balanced life as a father, husband and friend.
I have always had a passion for stocks and the financial markets. In the early 90’s, I landed a role on the floor of The Chicago Mercantile Exchange and that passion really bloomed. I worked hard, developed my skills and gained vital experience. I believe that experience sets us apart from our competitors by giving me an advantage to navigate complex portfolios. Today, I have over 30 years of industry experience to help my clients pursue their own goals and dreams. Happily, I love what I do and do what I love every day.
The people that support me daily, my team, is another reason why we continue to grow and be successful. We have assembled a team of seasoned professionals that are just as dedicated and passionate as I am. Our team approach allows us to fully support you and your family’s needs and enables us to operate efficiently. In time, you will realize that our people are our most valuable assets.
I am happily married to my wife Jill, of 24 years. In 2012, she retired from a professional career in the insurance industry, so we could raise our two daughters, Gabriella and Angelina. Ella is a freshman at The University of Kentucky, in Lexington, and Angelina is a freshman at Plainfield North High School, in Plainfield. When I have some leisure time, I enjoy cycling and being on the golf course.
