Recipe for Success with Guest Don Silvestri, Debt.com
Just as there are no two recipes that contain the exact same ingredients or measurements, there are no two success stories exactly the same. Recipe For Success features entrepreneurs, visionary leaders and innovators of all ages who will share their ingredients that make them successful – personally and professionally.
Let's get cooking! Don Silvestri played nine seasons of professional football including the NFL’s New York Jets, Buffalo Bills, and Seattle Seahawks before retiring to South Florida – not to retire but to work. Now president of Debt.com, Silvestri brings over a decade of management experience in the financial industry. He is active in the community serving as treasurer of the NFL Players Association South Florida chapter as well as a founding director of Parkland Cares, which funds mental health counseling in the aftermath of the tragic shootings last year at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. In each of his roles, he’s had an abiding interest in helping children, whether it’s teaching them sound financial principles they’ll take with them throughout life or ensuring they have the therapy they need to overcome the trauma in their lives.
Along with his wife Alissa, the Silvestri’s devote additional time and resources to several local charities as much as they can, especially if related to serving children and raising awareness to many programs including becoming foster parents and adopting one of their foster children in 2017. Silvestri holds dual degrees in Marketing and Business Administration from the University of Pittsburgh, where he was a varsity letterman and an Academic All-American.
