Ryan McKinney
Managing Partner


Ryan is the managing partner with McKinney-Green Insurance, Inc.  He has over a decade of experience working as an insurance agent for two of the largest brokers in the country, where his primary focus was on large, complex commercial accounts with premiums well over $100,000. 

Discovering that many of his successful commercial clients didn’t have the same level of sophistication and expertise applied to their personal insurance coverage, he developed a long-term plan to shift focus, and he began deepening his knowledge by studying applicable coverage and solutions before partnering with John M. Green Insurance.  

The process always begins by asking engaging questions and listening, gaining a detailed understanding of a client’s family, lifestyle, priorities, and passions. In many cases, this is a combined approach involving wealth managers, estate attorneys, CPAs, family offices, etc., to develop the best solutions. He strives to continually increase his industry knowledge and bring more value to his clients.  

Ryan has attained his Certified Insurance Counselors (CIC), Chartered Private Risk and Insurance Advisor (CPRIA), Certified Workers Compensation Counselor (CWCC), Certified Professional Insurance Agent (CPIA) and Agribusiness & Farm Insurance Specialist (AFIS) designations. He is currently completing a Personal Risk Manager (CPRM) program.  

He is actively involved with the local chapter of the Professional Insurance Agents (PIA), Insurors of Tennessee, Nashville Downtown Rotary Club and Heritage Foundation of Williamson County.   

Ryan lives in Franklin, TN with his wife Genevieve and their two children. They are active members of Brentwood Baptist Church where Ryan serves as a deacon.  Ryan has served on the board of numerous community organizations and currently serves on the board of the Downtown Franklin Association. A competitor at heart, he is an Ironman finisher (10:15) and avid off-road motorcycle racer.
