Retirement Plan Advisor
Mark Ruzicka is the institutional retirement plan advisor for Centric Retirement, a division of Centric Advisors. He guides business owners through the transparency process of fee discovery and fiduciary responsibility assignments for their company’s retirement plan. Through investment fund monitoring, reporting, and employee engagement he fosters trust as an extended member of their company’s executive team.
Since childhood, Mark’s father was instrumental in teaching him consistent savings habits, always paying down debts, and the importance insurance plays in one’s overall financial security. From Mark’s adolescence, he watched his father’s health deteriorate year after year from Multiple Sclerosis, to where ultimately, his father was unable to work and needed more income to pay bills than what his social security combined with his pension check could provide.
Mark was crucial in helping his parents navigate the structuring of their insurance, Social Security, Medicare, Pension, and life savings towards providing care for his father, without having to sacrifice his mother’s retirement plan. Over the years Mark has helped many families figure out how to use the resources that they’ve attained from past jobs, government programs, and private savings accounts, towards designing an income stream for their retirement while protecting their assets along the way.
After graduating from the University of Texas with a degree in mechanical engineering, Mark’s path pulled him into the financial services industry and has been a positive force in transforming people’s livelihoods ever since.
