Ryan Sachtjen


Ryan has passionately pushed for positive change since his start in the benefits industry, over a decade ago. He is dedicated in the pursuit of attacking the most challenging problems within employee benefits.

Throughout his 12 years at Sun Life and Genworth Financial, Ryan developed a deep understanding of the complexities and intricacies of the employee benefits market. From products and risk management to process and distribution, he used that knowledge to challenge conventional approach within insurance carriers. Ultimately, this drive for improvement expanded beyond a single carrier and led to the creation of WatchTower.  He couldn't be more excited to help lead the WatchTower team as we connect and modernize an industry. 

Ryan spends his leisure time with his wife and two kids. He enjoys skiing, tennis, golf, and serves as a Board member for Children's Home & Aid. He beats all of us at golf, but he's gracious enough not to rub it in our faces...
