Securus Executive Management Team
Matthew A. Goldberg is the President and CEO of Securus and all affiliated companies, bringing nearly three decades of experience in the insurance industry, with a track record which speaks for itself.
Mr. Goldberg started his career as a sales agent at Metropolitan Life and New York Life. After an award-winning career as a producer, he transitioned to sales management and built successful agencies in Arizona, California and New Jersey.
From there, Mr. Goldberg assisted in building a successful National Marketing Organization that was based in California before starting out on his own as the founder of Affiliated Mortgage Protection (AMP) in 1997. AMP re-invented the sale of Mortgage Protection life insurance, and doubled in size its first five years until it became one of the largest Insurance Marketing Organizations in the United States. Mr. Goldberg led Affiliated Mortgage Protection to over 100 million in annual sales and set the standard for sales and training standards.
Mr. Goldberg is recognized throughout the industry as the innovator of the Return of Premium Insurance, and developed a duplicatible model for selling Mortgage Protection Insurance that has often been imitated, though never replicated.
At Securus, Mr. Goldberg leads a management team that has created a platform and model for the sale of Final Expense life insurance and related products for the Baby Boomer and senior market segment that is poised to dominate this market segment as AMP did when it similarly revolutionized the Mortgage Protection niche. At Securus, Mr. Goldberg also assumes the role of National Marketing Director for the outside field force, and is hands-on in every aspect of the business.
Matt has been married to his wife, Bonnie, for over thirty years and has two daughters, Melyssa and Lyndsay.
