A life insurance expert and member of the California Bar since 1995, Cory works with business owners to design and fund non-qualified executive retention plans that reduce turnover and improve company performance. With decades of experience working with the real estate, construction, defense, non-profit, financial, and privately-held business communities, Cory and his team are a natural fit with CRT.

As our Vice Chair of Sponsor Development, Cory’s experience and voice are critical to our continuing success. His effort to find and filter out quality sponsors provides support and a critical component to the CRT ecosystem and its mission of guiding hundreds of businesses to their next level of accomplishment. CRT sponsor firms provide financial support and a network of resources for the mentors, partners, and companies being mentored.

“I was fortunate enough to have good mentors as a young adult,” he explains, noting “I appreciate the willingness of someone to learn, grow, and contribute back to the community.”

Of course, a person of Cory’s caliber would quickly be snapped up by dozens of groups, each eager to put his skill set to work for them. His focus on Chairmen’s RoundTable is easily explained.

“We have some of the best business minds in San Diego in one room. Everyone is VERY open to sharing. These are people who have spent years growing and running multi-national corporations, and they don’t have anything to prove. This leads to an atmosphere of camaraderie and a lack of ego that’s very refreshing to work around and be part of. Everyone in the room leaves every meeting with new insights that can be shared with friends, clients, and associates.”

And what does he see CRT bringing to clients, other supporters, and San Diego’s at-large business community? “Attending a meeting is an amazing experience. Any business owner would pay handsomely to get a consultation with any number of the minds in that room. It is quite fortunate that dozens of brilliant people are willing to give of their time, wisdom, and experience for free…because they know it’s a great way of helping San Diego’s business community.”
