Walter De Lise
Walter De Lise – Founder of De Lise Benefit Solutions has been a significant force in the insurance industry for over 40 years.
Walter started his insurance career in 1961 as a file clerk at Allstate Insurance company. Being exposed to many of the facets in the insurance industry, his passion for insurance developed early on. After further advancing his education, Walter then went on to Bankers Life. There he took on the role of manager for the Customer Service Team. Understanding more of the insurance world, he set out for bigger and better things.
Walter then became the Sales & Marketing Director for National Catholic Society of Foresters in the mid-70’s. There his skills excelled, and he increased policies enforced from $63 million to a $138 million in a six-year period. While gaining ground in this area, he became the Sales & Marketing Director for five other insurance companies: Catholic Workmen, Western Catholic Union, Royal Arcanum, Neighbors of Woodcraft & Ukrainian National Association. Within these roles, Walter developed new insurance policies and was solely responsible for the hiring and development of the sales forces for each company.
After having a long and very successful career, Walter changed gears and went into employee benefits. Over the next 15 years Walter focused on individual and group benefits. Always wanting to help his clients further, Walter became a certified senior advisor. Not shying away from a challenge, he also took the opportunity to become a licensed insurance agent and benefit enroller.
Finally, after many years of working for some of the leading insurance icons during his career, Walter wanted to focus on his dream; his own business. Founding De Lise Benefit Solutions with his wife Brenda is one of his greatest accomplishments. He wanted to build a company that would give clients of any size the experience, knowledge and understanding that he has. From offering life insurance, Medicare supplements, long term care, to IRA’s and annuities from major companies, Walter can advise on it. His goal is for every one of his clients to know just how important each of them are, and that going the extra mile is what everyone will receive from him and his team.
Leading by example, being involved in his community and giving back however he and his family can, are the most cherished attributes of who he is today.
