Joseph Bonasera founded Summit Financial in 1993 to provide clients with the kind of personalized attention that he hadn't found in his previous 20 years working in the financial services industry.

He built Summit Financial on two key concepts: first that every client should feel like they are the only client, and second that the corporate environment should be one that supports the personal growth and professional fulfillment of every member of the Summit Financial team.

Summit Financial's strength lies in the handpicked team of people who, like Joe, are motivated to succeed, effective communicators, respectful of their clients and co-workers, and strive to be the best they can be.

Joe has over 40 years of experience in the sales, service, and administration of employee benefit and retirement plans - the most rewarding of which have been the past twenty years running Summit Financial Corporation.

Educational and Professional Background:

Bowdoin College-B.A. 1973
Northeastern University-M.B.A. 1981
Bentley College-M.S.T. 1983
