Ryan Russell (1982-2023)
The financial advisory profession lost a great leader last week. Ryan Russell passed away, following a 17-month battle with cancer. Ryan was head of business for Twenty Over Ten, a top marketing firm that he and his wife, Samantha, sold to FMG a couple of years ago.
I got to know Ryan when I did a podcast with him and Samantha a few years ago. You can listen to it here.
I do a charity bicycle ride every summer. When I learned that Ryan was ill, with his permission, I dedicated my ride to him last year and helped raise funds for glioblastoma cancer research.
I was fortunate to meet Ryan in person in Florida earlier this year and saw what a kind and loving person he was.
You can learn more about Ryan’s career and his many accomplishments from his obituary.
Please join me in extending my deepest sympathies and condolences to Samantha, her three children, and Ryan’s and Samantha’s extended families.
