Meet Jay Dodaro
Jay Dodaro believes he has reached the pinnacle of his profession through the power of one key attribute, by being a great client educator. He will have at least three assessment meetings with a client before even proposing a financial planning strategy to make certain they are ready to make a sound decision. By the time a solution is recommended, clients are so confident in their choice they enjoy the comfort and peace-of-mind that comes with a well-thought-out financial strategy.
And they are so confident in Dodaro’s knowledge that they become lifetime clients, turning to him to help meet all their financial goals, as well as introducing their family and friends, allowing his business to be completely referral based.
Dodaro spent 10 years in the Navy and 14 years in Corporate Sales and Salesforce Management, before joining his father and namesake, Gene Dodaro, in the insurance business. The senior Dodaro also based his successful career on client education. He and colleague Guy Ebinger host a popular financial radio show, “The Gray Fox & Boomer Show,” which has aired for almost two decades.
When Dodaro joined the family business he brought a military-like corporate precision to building and maintaining the company’s client database and service model. Having a solid process and experienced family members to support him allows Dodaro to spend that extra time with clients, making his Wooster, Ohio-based firm, Star Strategies, the elite practice it is. Following in his father’s footsteps, Dodaro hosts his own successful radio show, “The Star Strategies Show.”
Dodaro is building a legacy for his family just as he does for his clients. His wife, Kay, is an integral part of the business. Their sons, Robert Dodaro , Jayson Dodaro, Greg Stell and daughter-in-law Janessa Stell, have joined them in the company to ensure the Star Strategies brand of success will benefit their clients…and the Dodaro family…for generations to come.
