Robert Ritter grew up in Dalton, PA, on the peripheries of Scranton. He worked in a coal and lumber business owned by his father. He then moved to New Jersey to attend a prep school and later landed at Williams College in Northwest Massachusetts, where he graduated with a B.A. in Psychology.
A Brief Background
Robert Ritter, from an early age, displayed a remarkable passion for both music and entrepreneurship, excelling in every endeavor. During his time at Williams, he led the college band as the principal cornet player, even having the distinction of being the first to perform at Carnegie Hall.
His achievements extended beyond the realm of music. His college band achieved nationwide recognition, winning the coveted Arthur Godfrey Talent Scout Show on CBS and making appearances on the Tonight Show on NBC. They were even honored with an invitation to perform at Princess Grace’s wedding in Monaco.
In the professional sphere, Robert continued to excel. After completing college, he joined the Newark General Agency of Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance. In just his second year, he began leading the agency in production. In the subsequent two years, MassMutual recognized his talent and dedication, promoting him to General Agent in Oakland, CA. This accomplishment marked him as the youngest individual ever to achieve this milestone in the US.
Robert Ritter stands as the visionary founder of InsMark, a groundbreaking FinTech software company that has been a cornerstone of success for over 30,000 financial producers. Nearly 100 major life insurance companies have recognized the value of InsMark’s products. The success of InsMark is a testament to Robert Ritter’s innovative ideas.
Establishing InsMark in 1983, Robert drew from years of experience working in the retail sector of the life insurance industry. He keenly observed a persistent issue in company-sponsored presentations: the life insurance data was often poorly conveyed to customers, hindered by other departments like legal and actuarial. Motivated to address this gap, Robert Ritter sought our assistance to enhance his brand, social media credibility, and authority.
