AIG Financial Network has announced that Edward A. Zabielski, Jr., CAP, is the organization’s leading sales agent for 2014. AIG Financial Network honored him at its recent Annual Leadership Conference.
Zabielski, a former trustee of the NAIFA Board of Directors, has been a financial advisor for over 35 years, servicing families, businesses, non-profits and NFL players. He is a member of the National Football League Players Association, which provides NFL players with access to a diverse group of financial professionals.
Zabielski, whose advisory practice is based in Middletown, Delaware, guides his clients through a wide range of complex financial decisions. He helps individuals, small businesses, and non-profit organizations reach their philanthropic goals, while also meeting their non-charitable, estate-planning and wealth-management needs.
In 1996, he and his wife, Patricia, formed The Edward A. Zabielski, Jr. Foundation to help less fortunate children. He has received numerous industry awards, including membership in MDRT’s Top of the Table and the International Forum.
“Ed exemplifies the word ‘partner’ in his relationships with his colleagues and clients alike,” said John Deremo, Executive Vice President and Chief Distribution Officer, AIG Financial Distributors. “He has inspired his fellow agents to excel as individuals, as well as part of our team, while implementing strategies to help clients create more secure financial futures and achieve their desired legacies.”
“I’m honored to be affiliated with AIG, and to educate others on the innovative solutions that are available as part of its vast and diverse product portfolio,” Zabielski said. “I became a financial advisor to make a positive difference in people’s lives—and seeing their goals and dreams come to fruition is incredibly rewarding.”
Zabielski recommends that in addition to investing in the local community, his fellow members of the financial-services field should take the time to participate in industry associations, stay abreast of new product innovations, and capitalize on opportunities for continued professional development.
