Samuel John Lauria III
Wealth Management Advisor

Lauria Financial


Sam is a lifetime resident of Fairfield County.  Sam grew up in Fairfield, CT with his sister Jennifer, mother Debra and father Sam.  After attending Fairfield College Preparatory School from 1995 – 1998, Sam stayed close to home and transitioned to the Charles F. Dolan School of Business at Fairfield University.  From an early age, Sam watched his father run a successful small business in Bridgeport, CT.  Admiring the relationships his dad built over the years made Sam realize he also wanted to be an entrepreneur and own a small business one day.  With that being said, it was an easy choice to begin a lifelong career at Northwestern Mutual.


In the spring of 2001 Sam began an internship with Northwestern Mutual in the Ridgefield, CT office under Managing Director Walter Pierz.  That internship migrated into a full-time career that began in the spring 2002.  Shortly after starting his career in 2002, Sam moved to South Norwalk, CT where he lived for 10 years.  In 2008 the Ridgefield, CT office moved to Wilton, CT and so did Sam, a few years later.


In 2011 Sam met his future wife Ashleigh who lived in Naples, FL.  After 12 months of flying back and forth Ashleigh decided to move from Florida to CT after accepting a job in Westchester, NY as the eCommerce Buyer for Nine West.  After living in South Norwalk for 3 years Ashleigh and Sam decided it was time to start a family and moved to Wilton, CT.  In 2015 that dream came true with their first son, Max and in 2018 welcomed their daughter Kendall.


Ashleigh, Kendall, Max and Sam continue to live in Wilton, CT enjoying everything the suburbs have to offer.  Sam currently coaches both Max and Kendall’s Flag Football teams and also helps with Max’s spring Baseball team.  Sam’s career and business are constantly growing with the help and support of his wife Ashleigh and associate Keri.  Sam continues to build long lasting relationships with his clients and plans on working well into his 70’s.  Sam has built a great passion for helping people achieve financial stability and wants to work as long as possible so he can watch his clients grow and enjoy the plans they work so hard to achieve.
