Walter Ricker III

First Vice President–Wealth Management

Financial Advisor

In 2019 I returned to working full time as a Financial Advisor after serving for over seven years as Branch Manager for UBS in Spokane. My educational background includes a BA degree from Colgate University, and an MBA in Finance from Florida State University. Additionally, I hold the CFP® financial planning designation. I have worked in financial services for over 20 years, and prior to that gained experience in corporate finance, management consulting and corporate acquisitions. Away from work I enjoy fly fishing, skiing, and family time with my wife Sandi and our two sons.
