Meet Skylight's New Partner Jeff Zemito
What does it mean to you to become a partner at the firm?
It means a lot. It gives me the opportunity to be part of a team and help define what we do as an organization.
How do you feel your appointment can be helpful to your practice as well as Skylight Financial Group as a whole?
Having a team or partners means we can all benefit from feedback, best business practices and sharing experiences to help us grow as planners and as a firm and insight from professionals who have a variety of focuses in our industry, skills and clients.
What made you want to work in this field?
To help individuals, families and businesses gain peace of mind that they are financially secure and allowing them to focus their energy on their loved ones. Owning a business where I can set my own hours and do something I enjoy doing.
What advice would you offer others looking to advance their financial services career?
Build strong relationships with clients, they can be your greatest referral source. Have the mindset to help people no matter the size of the case and to be looked at as a resource.
Let’s assume you never entered the workplace of the financial world, what was that one job you thought you wanted?
I am not sure since I’ve been a financial planner going on 19 years. I would do something with exotic cars or some other profession where I can help people.
Tell us something about you that people will not find in your ‘official’ bio that shows a side unknown to us and the people you might know.
I have a passion for cars and like to go to concerts. I have seen Black Sabbath and Ozzy Osbourne solo 35 times total, sitting in the front row for 20 of those!
