Client Advisory Board

Client Advisory Board members serve as advocates and a collective voice for our clients. They do not offer investment advice, but help us gain insight into the wants and needs of our clients and to find innovative ways to better serve them. Their feedback on issues such as new services and programs, marketing materials, communications, investment reports, and impressions about staff, phone courtesy, and office atmosphere are invaluable to our commitment of constantly improving our service and business practices.

In an effort to provide the best possible input to improve the overall client experience, members of the board are selected and invited to serve on the board based on a variety of characteristics: length of time as clients of Ricker Retirement Specialists, geographic diversity, investment, and technological experience.

We truly appreciate their dedication and time, and their desire to assist with the needs of all of our clients and our organization.

Client Advisory Board members are voluntary positions. They are not employed or retained by Ricker Retirement Specialists or LPL Financial. LPL Financial, Ricker Retirement Specialists an the employing companies listed below are not affiliated. Any communication from Ricker Retirement Specialists is not subject to approval nor endorsed by the board members.
