Success demands sweat and blood. It doesn’t land on you overnight. It has to be discovered and then capitalized on. When we start reading the whole slew of successful people, we find one recipe: perseverance. Robert Ritter is one of the additions to the ever-growing list, and we can’t help but applaud this versatile man.
Robert hated sitting idle; he still does. He sculpted himself productive from the earliest. Growing up in Dalton, PA, on the peripheries of Scranton, he worked in a coal and lumber business that his father owned. He then moved to New Jersey to attend a prep school and later landed in Williams College in northwest Massachusetts, from where he graduated with a B.A. in Psychology.
This Ritter boy had a knack for exploring his passion to the fullest. Be it music, entrepreneurship, or finding the girl of his dreams, Robert aced everything. He played lead cornet while at Williams. His college band was the first to play at Carnegie Hall.
His group won the nationwide most-watched show, Arthur Godfrey Talent Scout Show on CBS, appeared two times on the Tonight Show on NBC, and was invited to play for Princess Grace’s wedding in Monaco.
Besides his entertainment overtures, Robert rocked in professional life as well. After college, he joined the Newark General Agency of Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance. He started leading the Agency in production in his second year, but he didn’t halt just there. In the following two years, MassMutual promoted him to General Agent in Oakland, CA, and with that, he became the youngest person ever to achieve that milestone in the US.
Talking of achievements, there is no scarcity of that with Robert. He, in the 1980s, sold the largest ever insurance policy at the time and made countrywide headlines. Mr. Ritter proved his mettle working with a number of insurance companies. Now was the time to squeeze something out of his extensive experience. And what came out took the financial world by storm.
InsMark was an instant success. It was immediately adopted by brokerage firms, insurance companies, marketing organizations, executive benefit specialists, registered investment advisers, and retail producers.
Up to the present time, InsMark has helped many insurance companies and financial producers from a wide range of services in their dealings with their state-of-art software tools.
Robert is a man of utter determination. He has never let the guard down yet and is still young as ever. So are his dreams. And we can only say that he still has so much to achieve.
