For Wealth Management Group founder and CEO Jeff Maroz, success is directly correlated to a longtime pursuit of excellence and leadership in the life insurance industry. As he celebrates 25 years working in Wealth Management, Maroz reflects on an initial encounter that jump-started his career and appetite to transform an industry that needed evolution.
“Under no circumstances will I ever accept an average outcome from myself; to be given such a rare opportunity and produce average results feels like failure,” Maroz plainly states, “I was always ambitious.”
Harkening back to college, a chance encounter with a boutique life insurance agency led to a startup marketing program that opened up a world of possibilities. “My business model was to offer sophisticated life insurance programs to sophisticated investors,” he explains.
Wealth Management Group Inc. offers a wide array of insurance coverage to fit specific needs; from every business and family scenario imaginable. Maroz currently is based in Miami, but the company offers services in several states.
The consummate serial Entrepreneur, Maroz is vested in numerous business ventures outside of wealth management. He also owns a Sky Zone trampoline park, as well as multiple real estate investments.
“I think it’s in my mindset that I should always make more money than I do; my level of expectation is always going to be high….and I am definitely a perfectionist in a certain respect” he explains.
As far as notable hobbies, Maroz has his helicopter pilot’s license, which was inspired by his father who was an aviation enthusiast. He cites numerous sources of inspiration that color his motivation in business and in life in general.
“What motivates me?” he laughs. “I think, ironic people…. things I see on Instagram, real “beasts”, like the Kobe Bryants of the world, people on another level of discipline. They don’t negotiate with their mind or quit or even compromise.”
Maroz also is actively vested in multiple charitable ventures. He’s traveled to Haiti to work at an orphanage, gone to Joplin, Missouri after a tornado devastated the area, as well as Thailand post-tsunami to aid recovery efforts. He also contributes to the Roberto Clemente Foundation for those less fortunate.
Maroz’ positive attitude colors his entire outlook, and for this successful Entrepreneur, the future is sure to continue to be bright.
