  • The New York Life values that first drew her to the company in 2014 and the advancement opportunities she has experienced since then.
  • The most pressing topics that Natalie and her fellow members of New York Life’s Executive Management Committee are tackling today.
  • How Natalie’s time as an Assistant United States Attorney (AUSA) in Manhattan prepared her for a career in the life insurance industry.
  • How, at New York Life, diversity, equity, and inclusion are core to the company’s values, as well as its business model, and she sees diversity is a strategic differentiator.
  • How Natalie’s work as a Trustee for City Year Inc. as well as Co-Chair of the Board of City Year New York, which supports the development, growth, and success of students in systemically under-resourced schools, has left her inspired and optimistic about the future.   

 "I have always believed that integrity and profitability are not at odds, but rather, inextricably linked."-Natalie Lamarque

As Natalie noted, “New York Life’s fundamental values of mutuality and humanity, coupled with its mission to provide financial security and peace of mind, drew me to the company.  I have always believed that integrity and profitability are not at odds, but rather, inextricably linked. Throughout my time at the New York Life, I have watched the company live those values… At New York Life, diversity, equity, and inclusion are core to our values as well as our business model. We believe diversity is a strategic differentiator and understand it takes work to create an environment where differences are celebrated and dissenting voices are valued.”
