Ryan McKenna is the Managing Director of the Northwestern Mutual South Hills.  He oversees the recruiting, selection and development of new financial advisors, and the highly recognized year-round internship program.  Ryan is also a CFP®, he helps highly driven clients put together their first financial plan and those in, or near retirement, to fully assess their situation in the critical distribution phase of life.

Ryan and his team go beyond basic planning to incorporate a more holistic approach; for example: addressing student loans, budgeting strategies, social security choices, the need for a will and creating multiple differentiated buckets of savings.  Ryan is highly passionate about helping his office grow through successful advisors and the impact that can have on our clients in the community.

On the weekend, Ryan enjoys spending quality time with his wife Erin and two daughters.
