About Ronald Waskow


Ron was born and raised in Western New York, he grew up an athlete, playing Football, Hockey, and Baseball while attending Iroquois High School. In the summers, Ron acquired a love of animals while working on his grandparents’ farm. After high school, he worked in the construction industry for a year in southern Georgia. 

After spending a stifling hot summer below the Mason-Dixon line, Ron moved back to WNY with a newly acquired affinity for sweet tea and collard greens. Ron enrolled at Canisius College, where he obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance. While at Canisius College, Ron received his first exposure to the Financial Services Industry where he interned at Solomon Smith Barney working alongside professional wealth managers. Ron saw the value of professional advice and the impact that their expertise has on individuals and families.


Following graduation, Ron started his career in the financial services industry working for a local affiliate of MetLife where he specialized in personal retirement planning. This experience allowed him to gain an appreciation for comprehensive financial strategies, in addition to his experience in wealth management. In 2014, Ron was offered an opportunity to take a management position with Northwest Bank, he was in charge of Trust and Investment Services for Western New York. 

During his tenure with the bank, he continued to grow his repertoire, working with corporate clients, nonprofits and trusts. Constrained by recent bank mergers and wishing to provide a more personalized experience for his clients, Ron was introduced to Mike Lomas, co-founder of The Financial Guys. The team approach they provide, is more in-line with Ron’s values and skill set. Ron then joined The Financial Guys, LLC as he feels that being with an independent firm, like The Financial Guys, offers him the best opportunity to utilize his wealth of experience. He is able to provide his clients the best and unbiased solution to meet their goals and objectives.


Currently residing in Elma where he enjoys gardening, landscaping and cars, Ron and his wife Jessica also enjoy spending time with their three girls. Ron and Jessica are also lovers of animals, and are looking to add to their current stable of 2 dogs and a cat. He is also very active in his local community as a Town Committeeman, and serves on Elma’s comprehensive planning board, setting parameters for future local development.
