Ryan Hallett serves as Vice President of Technology and Operations for Highland Capital Brokerage. With more than 27 years of experience in the financial services industry, Ryan is a wizard with databases and specializes in using technology to make processes more efficient.
Prior to joining Highland, Ryan worked in the family brokerage general agency (BGA), Hallett Financial Group, since early in his college years. He started out on the technology side by programming a proprietary commissions and accounting platform that quickly evolved into a comprehensive AMS system that is still in use today. In 2014, Ryan was instrumental in the formation of Quotacy, primarily creating the systems and processes needed to quote life insurance prices online, as well as track and process tens of thousands of life insurance policies from online submissions.
Ryan lives in Minnetrista, Minnesota, with his wife and three kids. Because their kids are heavily involved in sports, most evenings and weekends are spent driving to and from practice, going to gymnastics meets, dance competitions, and tennis matches. When work and activities allow, Ryan and his family like to spend time at their lake cabin in central Minnesota. Paddle boards, kayaks, bonfires, BBQing, Ranger rides, and yardwork are the usual go-tos. Ryan also loves to cook and is always looking for new and different foods and techniques to try.
