Paul Frene

Paul Frene spent nine years closeted at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.As he gained more responsibility, he found it tougher to hide his sexual orientation from his staff and his secretary, who took messages from a frequent male caller,his partner."I can see now how being closeted does have an impact on your life and the time that you devote to covering it up," says Frene.
When he interviewed for a job in 1999 at MetLife, he came out.Asked what market he would serve, Frene said he planned to offer retirement and estate planning to gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender clients."I'm the gay poster child of MetLife because of my market, and it's a lot better environment to work in," says Frene, who works in MetLife's Baypark Financial Group in Roseland, N.J.
Well-meaning straight peers cautioned him about limiting himself to gay and lesbian clients."The guidance was, 'Don't focus too much on the gay and lesbian market,' " Frene says.
"When our parents go, we're a little less likely to have children, so we're a little more likely to be the ones to take care of our special-needs siblings," Frene says."And because it's a little harder for us to adopt, we're a little more likely to adopt special-needs children."
Frene also spearheaded efforts to form a GLBT employee resource group, a 300-member nationwide network he chairs.And he successfully pushed MetLife to offer domestic-partner benefits and serves on the GLBT marketing advisory council.
Though happier to be out at work, Frene honed a valuable skill when closeted at the Federal Reserve Bank.
"I became such a good listener," he says.
