Mr. Ryan Pearson

Executive, RT Specialty

I am an Executive at RT Specialty, one of the largest wholesale insurance brokers in the country. I have been a commercial property broker for the last 25+ years and during that time our property team has placed nearly $2bln of premium into the market. we will place approximately $150M of premium to the market this year making us one of the largest property teams in the country. Our key to success is our desire to help customers get the best coverage at the right price on some of the most complex property insurance risks in the country and at the same time being strictly driven by our self-imposed core values.

At home, I am a husband to my incredible wife, Brittany, and a father to 7 children (4 boys, 3 girls...ages 30, 23, 20, 16, 4, 2yr old B/G twins). I spend my time with my family, playing tennis, working on projects around the house, and enjoying (mostly red) wine. Due to struggles folks are having with the pandemic, Brittany and I helped finance / create, in concert with our church, a new charitable initiative called “Beacon of Light”. It’s designed to provide or subsidize mental health resources through the church for the church members and the local community.

I was born and raised in Wichita, KS and I have been around a lot of successful entrepreneurs my entire life, so I have great respect and fascination for risk takers that are able to succeed and help others by providing a valuable product or service. My investment interests are mainly in real estate and Private / Public Equity (particularly in biotech and cannabis). But, I have always had an insatiable desire to learn more and continually discover the more I learn the less I know! One of my favorite and defining quotes is from Jim Rohn: “Don’t wish it was easier, wish you better. Don’t wish for less problems, wish for more skills.”
