Foresters Financial Names Ryan Fleming as Its 2018 Community Involvement Award Winner


Foresters Financial™, an international financial services provider, is
pleased to announce Ryan Fleming as our 2018 Community Involvement Award

Ryan, a financial professional based just outside of Columbus, OH,
started selling Foresters life insurance products in 2013, and he and
his wife have gone on to become Foresters members themselves.

"We were introduced to Foresters through our [independent marketing
organization]. I saw right away Foresters was different," said Ryan.
"Above and beyond having a good product that would help my clients, I
was a big believer in the philanthropic nature that Foresters stood for.
Everything that Foresters stands for is centered around this notion and
I was drawn to that type of vision."

Ryan is very active in his community. After spending a decade playing
professional baseball in the minor league systems of the Toronto Blue
Jays, Philadelphia Phillies and Texas Rangers, he has coached several
youth sports teams, served at camps and given personal lessons. He and
his wife Heather are also very active in their local church. They have
served in the youth ministry there for 10 years and continue to mentor
the next generation. They host bible study groups for teenagers and
serve on the weekends in the elementary class.

"Ryan is the embodiment of Foresters purpose, which is to enrich the
lives of our members and their communities," said Matt Berman, Chief
Distribution Officer for Foresters North American Life Insurance and
Annuity business unit. "His dedication to volunteering makes him an
ideal winner for our Community Involvement Award."

In late June, Ryan was presented with the Community Involvement Award
while joining over 150 other Foresters agents and distributors
volunteering to build a housing complex with Habitat for Humanity in
Jackson Hole, WY. The volunteers helped install siding, painted and
installed trim inside the units.
