2020 marks the 60th year of the Ricke family servicing the insurance and financial services needs of our community.
In 1960, F.E. “Bud” Ricke, with the help of his wife, Vera Mae, started The Bud Ricke Insurance Agency in New Albany, IN. With no customers and no guaranteed income, the successful agency was built primarily serving the property and casualty insurance needs of his clients. Their sons, Larry and Mike, have continued in their parents’ footsteps.
Today, Larry and his wife Ann are joined in the family business by their daughter Emily Ricke Heine and their son Matt Ricke, where their focus is life insurance, wealth and tax strategies, retirement planning, and business succession. This makes the third generation of Ricke’s to serve the financial services needs of our Southern Indiana and Greater Louisville area. Ricke & Associates is staffed by a wonderful and talented team who offer quality work and excellent attention to our clients.
As we enter our 60th year and third generation, we appreciate where we came from and where we are going. We truly appreciate the loving upbringing, ethical guidance, and family values provided by Bud and Vera Mae Ricke, the patriarch and matriarch of our family business, and we strive to display those values in all we do each day.
