"I have had the pleasure working closely with Dave in both his role as President of Benefit Solutions at AIG and currently as a fellow board member on the non-profit Families of World War II Veterans. Dave is a thoughtful, creative professional whose enthusiasm for his work motivates those around him. Dave achieves success with innovation and hard work. He is an individual with great integrity; a performer in every aspect of his life. I would strongly recommend Sass Advisors to anyone that wishes to grow and prepare for the future.

"I had the opportunity to work with Dave in his role as President and CEO of AIG Benefits Solutions as a "thought partner" as he developed a series of sales, distribution, operations and technology strategies for his company. Facing a difficult market after 2008 and a number of challenges at the corporate parent level, Dave demonstrated positive, upbeat leadership with his clients, colleagues, and employees. Dave has a deep knowledge and passion for the affinity business, and a creative spirit for developing new solutions for his clients. He's a gentleman and it was my pleasure to work with him."

“Dave is an inspirational leader. He has a vision of the big picture to help an organization meet its goals and helps others realize their potential, which leads to success. In the division where I worked under Dave, he was always present to offer support in a caring manner. He is a decisive, professional and a reassuring leader. Dave was constant and consistent in all his communications, relaying the good and bad news in an honest and timely manner. Employees definitely counted on his ethical leadership. I think Dave is one of those leaders who will be remembered by colleagues for many years to come.”
