Michael Laurie

With over 20 years in the financial industry, a lot has changed, not just for the industry but for me too. I began my career as a running my own business – a residential real estate company. But, it was my intimate understanding of commercial banking led me to Citibank, where I was a business development officer and vice president for ten years. I then worked for two other banks during the next 6 years. A natural evolution was my forming DLA Capital Partners.

I like to think of myself as a caring person, and over the years my clients have remarked they didn’t see me as a banker, but as their friend. A huge compliment and, actually, how I feel about it too. It’s gratifying to hear it come back to me.

Every year I make time for causes close to my heart, including charities such as March of Dimes, Toys for Tots and Habitat for Humanity.

A Queens’s native, I now live in Floral Park, NY with my wife and children. I love following New York sports teams, playing basketball and baseball, reading and spending time with my kids.
