Practice Acquisition and Recruiting Director
It will only take one conversation with Rainier Ray for you to feel his passionate advocacy for the individual financial professional, their clients, and their success in the Lincoln family. Rainier captures the heart of Lincoln Financial Group as he sees each team member as an invaluable asset. One of his favorite phrases is “Teamwork Makes the Dream Work”, and with his years of experience in agency recruiting, securities sales and then BD recruiting he has seen this first-hand. What sets a company apart from another? Rainier knows that it’s the team members. He is driven to not only bring on the best and brightest but to see them develop even further to accomplish the dreams of their clients and thereby the advisor’s vision for a happy, healthy, growing book.
When Rainier is not tenaciously seeking out and developing others, he’s zealously improving himself. While reading some of his favorite books like, How to Win Friends and Influence People, by Dale Carnegie, he learned the artistic science of a well-crafted conversation. In Go-Givers Sell More, by Bob Burg and John Mann, helped Rainier acquire the passion for the perfect sale where both parties walk away valued and profitable. In The One Thing, by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan, he honed his ability to focus on what truly matters in a productive day's work as it dominoes into months and years. And it was John C. Maxwell through, Intentional Living, where his mindset exponentially transformed from simply being profitable, to pursue meaningful significance. All this and more, Rainier pours into his financial professional relationships and business partnerships.
