Executive Vice President
After graduating from St. Bonaventure University, with a BA in Marketing and Finance, Peter went on to serve in the Peace Corps in the South Pacific. Upon returning, Peter started his journey in the Insurance industry as a career agent in 1984 with Connecticut General in Detroit, Michigan.
"I've been so fortunate in my career to work in all phases of our industry. Beginning my education with work at one of the best career agencies, learning what really matters most. Then becoming a successful independent agent, working with multiple carriers. Getting involved in the bank channel in its infancy stage and completing the cycle as both a regional and divisional vp of sales for two top five carriers.
This ingrained in me a very basic premise, no matter where you are in any of these positions, the end user, the client, is always the focus. By continually looking for solutions to solve problems, they will always be taken care of.
I look forward to bringing our philosophy and innovation to you and your customers".
In his 4th year he started his own boutique Financial Services company, Wilson & Associates. Its area of expertise was Estate Tax Planning, Buy and Sell agreements and Charitable Giving. The business was sold after 14 years and Peter relocated to Charleston, SC where he helped start the life insurance channel in First Union Bank. As MONY of New York was launching its brokerage division, Peter was recruited to help get that venture started. A few years later MONY was purchased by AXA where Peter went on to be a Divisional for them. After a successful stay there he went on to be a Vice President of Sales for AIG, where he worked for three and a half years before joining MarketMaxx as Executive Vice President.
