Thomas J. Picone’s vision for the delivery of highly personalized financial advice continues to propel the growth of his firm and expand its impact on clients. After spending 20 years leading the successful wealth management firm Picone Capital, LLC, Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company tapped Tom to serve as President and CEO of MassMutual Westchester.
MassMutual charged Tom with taking his unique, holistic, and custom-based approach to wealth management solutions and making it a model for the agency. Tom met the challenge by bringing in and developing like-minded financial professionals who share his commitment and passion for helping clients achieve long-term financial stability and growth.
To further expand his business model and leverage his exemplary leadership skills, MassMutual Westchester recently merged with Fortis Lux Financial, creating a powerhouse in the financial services industry. As Chief Executive Officer of the combined organization, Tom provides the team with the leadership, motivation, and resources needed to provide comprehensive financial services which exceed client expectations.
As a recognized leader in holistic financial planning and motivating financial professionals to work collectively to help clients achieve their goals, Tom is a sought-after motivational speaker. While he shares his expertise and gives back on his time and talents to better the industry, he also keeps his finger firmly on the pulse of the local business landscape. He prides himself on his reputation as a leader in the business community, and on the personal and professional relationships, he has cultivated over his 30-year career. Tom also supports local non-profit organizations and is frequently called upon to help in fundraising activities.
Born and raised in the tri-state area, Tom lives in Westchester County with his wife, Heidi, and their two sons. He graduated from St. John’s University and received his CLU from The American College.
