Staley started his career as an agent with AXA Equitable, LLC out of St. Paul, MN in 1976 and because of his passion for the industry and helping others he was quickly recognized as a leader and become a District Manager in 1978.
After nearly 10 years of successfully recruiting and coaching Financial Advisors from success to success he became a Branch Manager in 1986. After spending a good portion of his life in the colder part of the country scrapping icy car windows and shoveling snow he moved to a warmer climate to enjoy some Carolina Blue sunshine.
Staley continued as a Branch Manager in Raleigh, NC for another 10 years as he recruiting and coached some of the top advisors in the country. Again, he was recognized for his commitment to helping Advisors grow and build successfully practices when he was promoted to Regional President covering North Carolina, West Virginia and South Carolina.
Because of Staley’s natural ability to coach and make a difference, he become the Divisional President of the North West US and Hawaii in 2002 and later Divisional President of AXA Equitable Mid West in 2004.
After finishing up his leadership role with AXA Mid-West in 2006 he thought he was ready to play a lot more golf but they kept pulling him back. In 2007, AXA asked him to be a consultant for AXA Hong Kong for 12 months. After continuing his long success track with Hong Kong he retired back to Raleigh, NC. Staley now enjoys playing golf, spending time with his family and coaching other Advisors to be the best they can be. Staley brings a wide array of best practices, wisdom and real hands on experience to everyone he coaches.
