Please allow me to introduce myself, my name is Michael A. DeMatteo co-founder of 10-15 Associates. I am currently the C.E.O and a managing director for our Registered Investment Advisory Firm. Performing my position involves being aware of all areas of the company, “as the saying goes the buck stops with me.” My main duties are corporate investment for the firm, managing the quality of the client experience and expansion of our future growth.
On a personal note I was born and raised in New Haven County, specifically Hamden Connecticut. As a boy, I was always fascinated with investment. I would accumulate savings from my paper route and invest in rare United States coins. I still hold many of the purchases that I made to this day. I am a graduate of Hamden High School and I also received my B.S. in Political Science and Economics from the University of New Haven.
I receive my inspiration from three people. My wife Debbie of over thirty years, who I consider an amazing mother, business partner, and love of my life. The other people that have had the largest impact in my life are my mother and father, who guided me throughout my youth and I credit them as being the model for raising my three children and providing guidance regarding the proper way to care about people which ultimately became a major influence of the counseling process for our clients.
In my personal life I enjoy traveling and playing golf throughout the United States. I also appreciate great food, fine wine, and spending as much time as possible with my wife, three children and their families. Lastly, I believe in giving back and I am passionate about supporting our local charities.
In conclusion, our firm to revolves around providing professional, unbiased service for our clients. We earn their confidence every day. Below I have provided our company purpose and I feel this is what it truly means to act as a fiduciary.
Our trade is financial management,
Our brand is trust, transparency, and consistency of service,
