Robert Petrocelli Named Chair of New York Life's 2022-2023 Agent Advisory Board of Directors

Robert Petrocelli has once again been named as the Chair of New York Life's 2022-2023 Agent Advisory Board of Directors (ABD). The ABD is an elite group of 17 agents who meet with the company's executive leaders to provide their perspectives on corporate strategic initiatives based on their experience in the insurance and financial services industry and running among the most successful agent practices in the country.

Each year, the highest producing former Council President is named the Chair of this distinguished group of agents. As the Chair of the ABD, Robert Petrocelli will be serving as a member of the ABD Executive Committee.

To qualify to serve on the ABD, an agent must have achieved the once-in-a-career title of Council President — the highest honor bestowed annually on any New York Life Insurance Company financial professional nationwide.

Agents earn this honor by an annual ranking (through production) from July 1 to June 30 as the top producer among New York Life's approximately 12,000 licensed agents, while adhering to the highest standards of ethics and professionalism. ABD members must also continue to rank among the top 5 percent of New York Life's field force annually.

Since then, he has achieved many insurance industry and New York Life awards including being a Life and Qualifying member of the Top of the Million Dollar Round Table, an international network of leading insurance and investment financial services professionals/advisors, the 2011 New York Life Council Vice President and 2019 New York Life Council President.
