Richard Young received a BA in Economics from the University of Cincinnati. He then worked 23 years for a Fortune 500 company. After taking an early retirement, he started his financial business in 1996.
In 2011, Richard began a strategic partnership with Mark Holmertz to service his clients now and in the future. As Richard would put it, “Mark’s the brains and I’m the good looks!” A comic by nature, Richard can always elicit a smile from clients and colleagues.
