David DeLorenzo, Ambassador Group/Bar and Restaurant Insurance
Owner and CEO
Ambassador group/bar and restaurant insurance
David DeLorenzo’s path to the insurance industry was more winding than straight. While interning at Warner Bros. Records during college, he fell in love with the entertainment industry and decided to make it his future. However, due to the tough marketplace at the time, he found himself instead working at his father’s agency, Ambassador Group Insurance, after graduation.
Right away, DeLorenzo embraced the bar and nightclub business, learning all the nuances about the type of protection these businesses need. Once he had gathered the required knowledge and experience in that field, he created a subsidiary of the Ambassador Group: Bar and Restaurant Insurance.
Today, 20 years later, DeLorenzo’s team takes part in associations and committees in the hospitality industry, promoting “great service and strong, positive relationships ... Knowing your client’s business practice, strengths and weaknesses is base-level effort,” he says. “Go the extra mile to design a service that covers all of their needs while making them feel like a real person, and you will never be seen as just another commodity.”
