Ron Carson is the Founder and CEO of Carson Group, a leading financial services company serving financial advisors and investors through its three businesses: Carson Wealth, Carson Coaching and Carson Partners. All three organizations are headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska, and serve a broad base of advisors and investors across the United States and Canada. Ron is also a New York Times bestselling author, one of only two advisors ever inducted into the inaugural Barron’s Hall of Fame, an award-winning entrepreneur, a dynamic keynote speaker and a passionate philanthropist. Through his principled discipline as a CEO, Ron has positioned Carson Group to be among Barron’s Top 100 RIA Firms in the country, managing $32 billion in assets and serving 50,000 families—a feat that has led the company to be recognized as a six-time participant in the Inc. 5000 list of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies over the last seven years.
Expanding his impact beyond the boardroom, Ron has become an influential voice in activating and accelerating social and environmental change, pursuing his mission to “do the greatest amount of good for the greatest number of people.” He and his wife, Jeanie, co-founded the Dreamweaver Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to fulfilling end-of-life dreams for seniors with terminal illnesses. More recently, Ron has advanced a global movement to feed the hungry (through a partnership with No Hungry Children), provide access to clean water to those in need (through a partnership with charity: water) and support individuals suffering from mental health challenges through various initiatives designed to help people transcend from scarcity, isolation and loneliness to abundance by living out their full potential.
Ron and Jeanie reside in Omaha and have three wonderful children and three grandchildren. Ron enjoys spending time with his family, hiking, aviation, hosting retreats for personal development and growth and cheering on the Nebraska Cornhuskers. His journey of finding freedom in his own life has ignited a profound mission to help others find their freedom.
