After graduating from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, David entered the life insurance business in 1975. He joined Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual) as the General Agent in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 1980, the youngest person ever appointed to this important position. At that time the agency was ranked 103 out of 103 agencies at MassMutual.
In 1996, as MassMutual finalized its merger with Connecticut Mutual, David’s territory expanded into Miami. He now serves clients from Key West to just south of Orlando, and covers the West Coast of Florida. David’s passion and goal was to be one of MassMutual’s top 5 agencies in the country. That dream became a reality in 1996 when he was named the number 4 agency. The South Florida agency consistently strives for excellence and has been recognized and ranked among the top 5 MassMutual agencies for the past eleven years as well as being a recipient of 11 MassMutual Chairman Trophy Awards.
These achievements were the result of consistent growth and David’s vision to build the finest agency in MassMutual, in terms of both quality of agents and quality of clientele. David believes there are three primary keys to success in the life insurance business: persistency, consistency and single-mindedness of purpose.
David’s community involvement has included serving as Chairman of the Board for the South Florida Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and Goodwill Industries of Broward County. He is past president of Soref Jewish Community Center, Ramat Shalom Synagogue and Jewish Federation of Broward County. David serves on the Board of Trustees for Nova Southeastern University School of Business, Board of Trustees of Jewish Family Services, and Board of Trustees for the South Florida Chapter of the National MS Society. He is also a Board member of TransCapital Bank and Sagemont Schools, and is a member of the Alexis de Tocqueville Society of United Way.
David and his wife Carrie live in Plantation, Florida and are the parents of Stacey, Todd, son in- law Matthew and daughter-in-law Sara, and proud grandparents of Brandon and Samuel.
