Gary D. Ricker Jr.

Title: Executive Vice President
Company: Amwins Inc.
Location: New York, New York, United States

Gary D. Ricker Jr., the executive vice president at Amwins Inc., has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Business Owners for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the insurance industry.

Hailing from practiced expertise in the field of wholesale insurance, Mr. Ricker has earned distinction through his role at Amwins Inc., the largest distributor of wholesale insurance products in the United States. In this capacity, through which he leverages a wealth of experience in the construction, real estate, retail, and manufacturing industries, he also serves as the leader of Amwin’s regional construction practice in New York and the New England region. Singularly dedicated to providing first-class service on behalf of his clients, Mr. Ricker works diligently to draw from the expansive network he has cultivated across the span of three decades in order to deliver impeccable results. 

Previously, Mr. Ricker distinguished himself through multiple roles of high leadership at such organizations as Amwins’ Partners Specialty Group, for which he served as a branch manager and executive vice president between 2010 and 2017, the president of Pacific Pro Intermediaries from 2005 to 2010, and the senior vice president of Swett & Crawford from 1993 until 2005. To remain aware of developments in the field, he has been a member of several organizations, including the Wholesale Specialty Insurance Association, the Insurance Brokers Association of New York, and the Professional Insurance Wholesalers Association of New York State, for which he served as president in 2007 and 2009. 

Originally drawn to the field of corporate law, Mr. Ricker heeded the advice of his father, who suggested that he major in insurance during his college studies. To wit, he graduated from St. John’s University with a Bachelor of Business Administration in property and casualty insurance in 1990. Since then, he has keenly learned the lessons of empathizing with his clients and making himself accessible to their needs. Throughout the course of his career, Mr. Ricker has also sought to separate himself from the competition by committing himself to an ever-continuing education, and to cultivating a longstanding relationship with his clients. 

In accounting for his overall success, Mr. Ricker largely credits his drive, self-motivation and passion in going the extra mile on behalf of his customers. In a professional journey suffused with highlights, he is most proud to have excelled in everything he set his mind to, and to have distinguished himself as a top producer during his time with Swett & Crawford. Looking toward the future, Mr. Ricker aspires to continue enjoying the growth and success of his career, and to support the efforts of his daughter, who has also entered the insurance industry.
