Ryan D. Buck
Ryan D. Buck is Vice President and Co-Founder of Freedom Broker Services, LLC which he proudly helped to build from the ground up in 2008 after years in the financial services industry. Following his work as a Financial Advisor and Associate Brokerage Director for nearly a decade with MassMutual’s number one brokerage team, Mid-Atlantic Broker Services, Ryan and his business partner Kevin P. Conley were eager to establish a premier full-service brokerage firm that offered a complete range of products, companies and solutions that could be customized for their producers’ diverse clientele.
As a graduate from Virginia Tech’s Pamplin School of Business with a B.S. in Finance, preceded by a background in engineering, Ryan spent his early career focused on financial planning within the deaf community. This came as a natural progression as a result of his personal experiences in growing up as the son of a deaf mother which enabled him to use his fluency in ASL and strengthened his passion for helping others. Ryan combined his personal aptitudes with his dedication to the insurance industry and translated his skillsets towards participating in various charitable functions over the years to include National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA) as well as The Greater Washington Foundation of Insurance and Financial Advisors (GWFIFA). Ryan has been a 15 year contributing member to NAIFA and currently serves on the board for NAIFA’s Greater Washington DC Chapter.
Ryan’s years of experience are proven by his analytical nature in vetting each product and company that he recommends. Ryan approaches each case with patience, persistence and unparalleled expertise, particularly in the areas of Long Term Care, permanent Life and Disability Income planning. His specialties range from in-depth case design and illustration support to using permanent Life solutions in retirement planning, business succession planning and estate planning.
Ryan enjoys photography, tennis and brewing beer with his girlfriend Ayanna. Trips to Southwest Michigan with family and friends, sailing, hiking the sand dunes and spending time on the shores of Lake Michigan are some of his favorite pastimes.
