Piero Silvestri

Senior Vice President

Piero is one of Premier Asset Solutions’ Senior Vice Presidents and a Financial Services Professional with New York Life. He enjoys the long-term friendships he has built while working with the majority of his clients for many years and has developed much care and respect for his clients. Gaining and keeping his clients’ respect is very important to him which pushes him to go above and beyond for his clients.

Piero works closely with business owners and individuals to help them realize their dreams of retirement and makes sure that their loved ones are protected. The need he fills for many of his business owner clients is creating an employee benefits plan and health insurance plan. Many of his clients are also restaurant owners that he assists with retirement planning as well as business succession planning.

Piero enjoys the working relationship and friendship he has built with Danny Capurso. He attributes the company’s success to how well they work together and that is reflected to clients.

Piero has been a member of New York Life's President's Council since 1993, and a qualifying and lifetime member of the Million Dollar Roundtable (MDRT). He is also a senior NYLIAC agent with New York Life and a former member of the Agents Advisory Council with New York Life.

An interesting fact about Piero is that before beginning his career in insurance and financial services, he was the first mate of a cruise ship. It is on that ship that he met his wife of nearly four decades, Andrea. He was then introduced to the man who would become his manager at New York Life, launching his successful career that has now served him well for many years.

Piero and Andrea are the proud parents of two children, Joseph and Olivia. Joseph works for New York Life’s Long Term Care Department and Olivia is pursuing her dream of becoming a designer.

Piero and Andrea cherish each other’s company and enjoy traveling as well as spending time at their property in West Palm Beach. They love being on the beach, enjoying nice restaurants and spending time with their friends and family.
