Richard Owens is a lifelong resident and member of the Western Pennsylvania community, and is a veteran of the USAF, where he served his country as a Germanic Cryptologic Linguist Specialist. Rick brings over 20 years of industry experience to Keystone Advisory Solutions, along with an LUTCF designation he earned from the American College for financial services, in 2010.

His advocacy on the part of his clients for superior products that provide alternative solutions and Living Benefits, helped springboard he and his partner, Ross Marshall, to top honors for the LiveAmerica marketing organization’s inaugural Leadership Business and Training Conference, celebrated this past August at the Biltmore Estate in Ashville, NC.
