Get to know the the Employee Benefit Specialist, Ryan Mount

What is your favorite part or your job?

The simple answer is helping people.

On one hand, handling an emergency claim and giving our clients a sense of peace and ease during a tough situation is always a driving factor of our work.

And secondly, seeing a business grow and partnering with them to help shape that direction is a daily occurrence that makes this job wonderful.   

Do you or your business donate to any charities? Which ones? Why?

Lang Financial has a long tradition of being a philanthropic organization.  We as a company donate to Matthew 25 Ministries, Greater Parks of Hamilton County, and, Hoxworth Blood Center, and many more.  You can see our full list of companies we support over at http://langgroup.com/community-involvement/.

I also personally give my time to mentoring at River City Correctional Facility and serve on the ritual committee for Temple Sholom. 

What is your key to success?

I am originally from the Philadelphia area, and we “Trust the Process.”

Best advice anyone has given you?

Network. Network. Network.

What is one short term goal you have for yourself?

I’d like to meet someone from every business in the Montgomery Chamber!  Whether a lunch and learn, an after-work networking event, or just a cup of coffee, let’s connect!

What do you enjoy the most about being a Montgomery Chamber Member?

While the networking is fantastic, but I love my role as a Chamber Ambassador and meeting each new member.  I also serve on the Communications Committee for the Chamber and enjoy my role with that group as well. 

What is one of your favorite quotes?

Marianne Willamson, “Our Deepest Fear”

The beginning of it goes, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.  It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.  We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?  Actually, who are you not to be? …”

Do you have any hobbies or activities of interest? What are they?

I am a bit of a writer.  I started writing professionally on a wedding blog and now spend most my time writing pieces around the comic book industry. 

What is your favorite hangout spot in Cincinnati?

I love coffee.  I really enjoy visiting many of our great coffee roasters in the Cincinnati area and grabbing a cup. 

Have you read a book recently that you would recommend?

A Passage in Black by Cullen Bunn.  I got an advanced copy to review and it is a perfect collection of scary stories. 

What is a show on TV that you can’t miss?

Game of Thrones is #1.  My wife and I are big fans of professional wrestling.
