"I have been where many of my students are right now, so I can appreciate the sense of urgency and even the occasional intimidation that comes when you're getting ready to step out of what's been a very consistent routine into something very different. I value the opportunity to walk alongside someone who's making that change and help by giving them retirement benefits instruction that they can translate into real security".
Gary T. Fouts,
Co-Founder, RSS, Inc.
Mr. Fouts is currently the National Director of Retirement Benefits for Retirement Systems Solutions. He is responsible for all matters relating to both the development of RSS regional specialists across the nation and the creation of comprehensive and up-to-date training materials for federal, state and local employees or agencies. He specializes in federal, state and local benefits training and coordinates agency-sponsored and public seminars on how to structure retirement benefits.
Prior to his current position, Mr. Fouts served in the U.S. Navy, retiring after 22 years of faithful service as a US Navy Intelligence Officer. During that time he was directly responsible for supporting the warfare communities with valuable and timely intelligence. A trademark of his career in this capacity was the ability to inform his war fighting customers of what they needed to know to conduct their mission. He always distinguished between the facts that surrounded a situation and the emotion of the moment. This is a skill that translates directly into his line of work today as a benefits instructor. As our governments continue their never-ending expansion and contraction, now more than ever, it is crucial that all employees have an opportunity to receive clear, objective information relative to their retirement benefits.
Mr. Fouts graduated in 1991 from Purdue University (Go Boilermakers!!!). He holds a Bachelors degree in Computer Information Systems and a Masters degree in Quality Systems Management. Mr. Fouts is a very active member of his local church and serves on the board of various charities. He is a devoted husband and father of five children (Eric, Chad, David, Summer Lee & Sara Beth) and is married to Dr. Sara Lee Fouts.
