InVEST® has appointed Ryan Teubner, independent insurance agent at Rich & Cartmill Insurance and Bonds headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma, to its national board.
“InVEST is pleased to announce that Ryan Teubner has been selected by the Big ‘I’ executive committee for its board of directors as an agent representative,” says Cindy Hower, InVEST board chair and president of Kellerman Insurance, an independent agency in Holton, Kansas. “Ryan brings an abundance of industry experience and expertise to the InVEST leadership. We look forward to working with him.”
Teubner’s insurance career began at Liberty Mutual in 2009, where he worked primarily in personal lines. After realizing that working as an independent agent would give him the flexibility and contacts to serve his personal and commercial clients more efficiently, he joined Rich & Carmill.
A graduate of Oklahoma State University, Teubner is now active at the national and state association levels as a member of the Independent Insurance Agents of Oklahoma, chairman of Oklahoma Young Agents and a member of the Independent Insurance Agents of Oklahoma City board of directors.
“InVEST is vitally important for the future of the independent agency system and the insurance industry as a whole,” says Robert Rusbuldt, Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA or the Big “I”) president & CEO. “Educators, volunteers and independent agency leaders, like Ryan Teubner, are key to the success of this program as it continues to grow and expand into more schools. We applaud and thank him for his commitment to this critical program.”
