Ryan Richards understands the value of investing. Not only from the standpoint of preparing one’s self for the future – but from the standpoint of investing in others to ensure a brighter and better future. Giving credence to the idiom coined by John F. Kennedy “a rising tide lifts all ships”.
An Ashtabula native and alumnus of Kent State University, Ryan began his pursuit of higher education in 1995 at the Kent campus and finished his education at the Stark campus; earning a BA in History. Ryan credits his success at Kent State University to hard work, having the ability to learn while applying real-world applications and knowing that he was receiving a world-class education from a top-notch university; and all for a tremendous value!
A short time after graduation, Ryan moved back to his hometown of Ashtabula and began working in the banking industry. Although his chosen discipline of study was history, Ryan quickly found himself enjoying the personal contact with customers, building relationships and helping them to achieve their personal financial goals.
In 2009, Ryan became an associate of the Huffman-Mayer Wealth Management Group as a Financial Advisor and is actively involved in the community; dedicated to the Ashtabula County area and to the success of his clients.
Ryan’s gift to Kent State University at Ashtabula is a testament to his belief in reaching out and giving back and is an expression of tremendous pride in and commitment to his alma mater.
