Meet Robert Scorrano
Robert and his wife Catherine are lifelong residents of Somers, NY. Together they are raising their two young children in the home Catherine grew up in. His parents moved to Lake Purdys in 1970, where his father Mickey still resides. An Army veteran, Mickey served in the 8th Army in Korea and ran a successful trucking business for 60 years. Rob's mother, Joey, was his rock and number one advocate. She was very active in town, having been one of the first female members of the Somers Lions Club until her passing in 2018. So Somers is a special place for Rob to call home.
After graduating from Hofstra University, Rob set his eyes on a fast-paced career in the energy trading industry, trading for such companies as Allegheny and NRG Energy. His entrepreneurial mindset took hold, and he shifted his career to insurance and financial services, where he is currently Vice President, Employee Benefits for one of the largest insurance brokers in the US. Before that, he worked for New York Life Insurance Company and Prudential Financial, where he managed a team of successful financial advisors which he recruited, trained, and developed. Rob set up a local office in the heart of Somers historical district. He traveled around the tri-state area to educate C-Suite executives, business owners, and employees on the importance of retirement planning and financial and health wellness. He conducted wealth management literacy classes and social security workshops at the Somers Library and Heritage Hills. His passion for community involvement continues where he hosts child ID stations at many local events, providing parents and guardians with tools to help protect their children.
While giving back to the community, Rob joined the Somers Lions Club. In addition, he served on the Zoning Board of Appeals from 2015 to 2018 and is heavily involved in Somers Youth Sports as a coach for football, lacrosse, and baseball. He loves to play golf with friends, listen to hair bands, and enjoy a good movie with his wife when he is not coaching.
He is a hometown boy: a tusker through & through!
