FINRA barred former Woodbury Financial Services broker Ronald Walter Hannes in connection with its investigation into allegations that Hannes converted customer funds. In late January 2020, Hannes indicated he would not cooperate with FINRA's inquiry, leading to permanent banishment from the industry.
Woodbury terminated Ron Hannes (CRD #1462241)'s employment in December 2019 after a client alleged that funds paid to Hannes for the purpose of purchasing a life insurance contract were not forwarded to the life insurance company.
According to AWC #2019064915301, Hannes allegedly converted customer funds while associated with Woodbury and, according to Hannes' BrokerCheck file, a customer complaint filed in December 2019 was settled in February 2020 for $128,827.06.
