Hello, my name is Ryan Hanley.
I am the founder and president of Rogue Risk, a first-of-its-kind "human-optimized" digital insurance agency creating the insurance foundation upon which entrepreneurs and small business owners can take the risks necessary to grow.

Why Subscribe to Finding Peak
As a creator, strategist, and speaker, I’ve been helping insurance professionals create meaningful and sustainable long-term growth in their careers and business for over 15 years.
My work cultivates leadership, marketing, and sales initiatives within growth-focused, abundance-minded organizations (so many consulting buzzwords)…
The truth is, I like helping people.
My success has never brought me as much joy as helping others find purpose and meaning and, ultimately, their own success.
Finding Peak is my attempt to share what I’ve learned with as many people as possible.
Why I Might Not Be Full of Sh!t
I founded my insurance agency in March 2020, seven days before COVID shut down the world. Despite this insane obstacle, I was able to grow and ultimately sell Rogue Risk 24 months later to SIAA.
In past lives, I’ve held leadership positions as CEO, and Chief Marketing Officer, providing a broad range of experience and expertise in both the macro (brand storytelling, product strategy, etc.) and the micro (tactical use of video in driving organizational growth) obstacles businesses face daily.
Over the last decade, I’ve delivered over 300 keynote presentations and workshops to insurance audiences of every flavor.
My work in the insurance industry is consistently listed in the top 20 of thought leadership in the insurtech (insurance technology) space.
Needless to say, I’ve seen a thing or two and done a thing or two and still don’t know what I’m doing most of the time.
Rogue Risk & SIAA
It has always been our belief at Rogue Risk that humans, the living, breathing professionals who dedicate their careers to protecting families and businesses across the US, are the true competitive advantage in every independent insurance agency.
But the world is changing, becoming faster, more digital, and unfortunately less personal. Humans are being replaced by algorithms, expertise is replaced by expediency, and ultimately the customer suffers.
This is why, when we founded Rogue Risk in March of 2020, we set out to build an insurance business capable of providing the modern digital customer experience backed by the hallmark trust and expertise of traditional independent agencies.
We call this "Human-optimized."
The "No Ceiling" Insurance Career
Rogue Risk isn't just a new model for the insurance customer experience, it's also an entirely new way of building your insurance career.
It has always been our goal to allow insurance professionals to take their insurance career as far as they want without unnecessary political or ideological roadblocks.
Your name shouldn't have to be outside the building to build a career you're proud of, challenged by, and makes all your wildest dreams come true. 😉
We call this a "No Ceiling" insurance career. As a producer or client success associate with Rogue Risk, you are given the training, tools, and support to go as far as you want.
Want to be a big-time producer... awesome.
Want to own your own agency... amazing.
Want to take over the insurance world... tremendous.
We're here to help and with SIAA's help, this mission is now possible.

What Makes SIAA So Awesome?
Good question. Here are a few of the reasons the team here at Rogue Risk is so jacked up about joining the SIAA family:
Commitment To Independent Channel
SIAA is committed to the creation, growth, retention, and especially the EVOLUTION of independent agencies for over 39 years.
And they're not only focused on growing independent agencies but also on growing the independent agency distribution channel.
Size To Scale
SIAA is ranked number one in Insurance Journal’s Top 20 Agency Partnerships in their 2021 annual Top 100 Report. The annual ranking of networks is based on total property/casualty revenue from the previous year.
With over $10.8 Billion in total written premiums, SIAA is the #1 alliance of independent insurance agencies – powered by 48 regional Master Agencies across the United States.
SIAA shares our core value of servant leadership. Starting at the top with Matt Masiello, CEO of SIAA, a 30-year plus veteran of the independent agency channel, and spreads throughout not just the leadership team but the entire organization, including the 40 plus master agencies in the SIAA network.
Insurance is a people business in all aspects. People create culture, people deliver value, and people create change. This shared value was a big part of our decision to join SIAA.

Rogue Risk plus SIAA is an undeniable 1+1=3 scenario.
Despite our success, Rogue Risk, in every capacity, is just getting started. SIAA provides us the experience, support, and resources to maximize the true potential of a digital, "Human-optimized" independent insurance agency.
Yours in insurance,
President, Rogue Risk
