Albert W. Papa currently serves as Executive Chairman of Cambridge Consulting Group. As a founding partner, Al has been the driving force that has helped Cambridge grow from a two-man operation in 1985 to one of the largest privately held insurance and financial services consulting firms. His leadership, strategic savvy and belief in giving back to the community permeates the entire firm, figuring prominently in its continued success.
With over 30 years in the financial and insurance industries, Al has built an impeccable reputation and was recently named a Five-Star Wealth ManagerSM in Estate Planning by dBusiness and HOUR Magazine. Along with his responsibilities at Cambridge, he serves as a consultant to insurance companies and financial firms throughout the United States, advising them on product development and distribution platforms.
