I am thrilled to announce that I’ve joined Ryan ALM. I’ve had the pleasure of working closely with Ron Ryan on a number of initiatives during the last 6+ years. I believe that Ron is one of the few true visionaries in our industry, and I am very much looking forward to continuing to learn from him. There are many challenges facing the retirement industry today and it will take a “back to the future” mentality to overcome them. At Ryan ALM we have the tools to help plan sponsors and their consultants navigate these difficult waters. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you desire smoother sailing.
Here is the press release announcing my arrival:
