“The message that a promise from New York Life is a promise that lasts and provides enormous peace of mind in today’s world, is a strong message to the local community,” said Scott Norris, managing partner, New Orleans General Office, New York Life. “This advertising effort is an outgrowth of our local commitment to provide financial security to families and businesses in this community. This effort brings two American icons together – New York Life and the LSU Tigers – we’re very proud of that.”
