IAP 189: A "Certified" Success: The Italian American CEO Leading a Wellness Revolution

• 56 min

For many Americans, the gradual reopening of the country means more time out of doors, the slow return to gyms, and the chance to take a good look at how we’ve been treating our bodies during the many months we’ve spent, for the most part, indoors. But why weren’t we examining our indoor environments this way before the pandemic?  This week’s guest, Paul Scialla, is the Italian American Founder and CEO of Delos Wellness Solutions, and he has made it his mission to help merge physical health with building science. According to Paul, Americans spend approximately 90 percent of their lives indoors, which can wreak havoc on our bodies, so he has developed a variety of wellness-based products for the buildings that encase so much of our daily lives. We’ll discuss Paul’s Italian American upbringing in suburban New Jersey, and how his family background and professional experiences on Wall Street helped lead him down the path to wellness advocacy. In true Italian American Podcast style, we also talk about the Italian aversion to air conditioning and how the famed “Mediterranean Diet” might just owe as much to the rural lifestyles of its subjects as it does to the food they eat. We’ll explore Paul’s early career on Wall Street, how he evolved from a financier to a wellness revolutionary, his landmark agreement with the Vatican, and how the company’s commitment to wellness for all has drawn support from some of the most famous names in science, business, government, and entertainment… all done in the name of providing wellness solutions to as many people as possible. If you’re a believer in the power of place to affect our lives, you won’t want to miss this very timely episode!
