"Maximize Your Talent" with Art DeLorenzo
Art DeLorenzo, CLU, ChFC, CFP, MSFS, MSEd, has been involved in the financial services industry since 1968.
Initially, he started as a financial advisor for Investors Diversified Services (IDS) in Cortland, NY, but soon moved into a leadership role as a District Sales Manager in Syracuse.
In 1984, the same year that American Express bought IDS, he accepted the position of Division Manager in the Melville office for all of Long Island and Staten Island.
In 2000, he became Group Vice President of the Upstate New York/Vermont market group, retiring from that position in 2005. During that time his market group markedly improved their sales ranking.
Mr. DeLorenzo is a founding partner in the MYT Group, LLC, which launched as a formal business entity in 2009. Pilot after pilot proved that with the MYT Process, people could, in fact, lower stress and improve productivity.
A defining moment for Mr. DeLorenzo occurred in 1999 when he was given the book Working With Emotional Intelligence by Daniel Goleman. Prior to this Mr. DeLorenzo had collected influential behaviors in a spiral notebook that he acknowledged as highly effective; it was from that notebook that he taught others. Now that these behaviors had names and subsets that could be more easily taught, he has been using that body of knowledge ever since.
Art is extremely proud of his family. He has been married to his wife, Debra, for over 42 years, and has four children, seven grandsons, and two granddaughters.
He is an accomplished mediocre golfer and retired from mountain climbing in 2016 after summiting many significant mountains in the US and in the Himalayas.
In 2010 he was inducted into the Castleton University Athletic Hall of Fame for his MVP contribution to the 1964 NAIA co-championship soccer team. Mr. DeLorenzo holds the distinction of being the only field leader in the Ameriprise Hall of Fame. He and his wife share time between their homes in New York City and Martha’s Vineyard.
