Meet Your Team
Scott R. Schatzle, CFP®
Financial Planner & Founder
As the founder of Mutual Trust Advisory Group, I am proud to have decades of experience in the financial services industry. After I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Management from Florida International University, I pursued the coveted CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM designation and honored to serve our clients with this professional credential. I am a member of the Financial Planning Association, contributing author, and distinguished past Chairman and President.
I also have served as an instructor for the CFP® Educational Certification Program offered through Boston University and enjoy teaching the future generation of financial advisors. When I am not working, I love running, weight training, fishing, and spending time with my family. I am married to Kelly, and blessed with three children, Riley, Caitlin, and Cody.
Aaron Pierce, CFP®, AWMA®
In 2020, I joined Mutual Trust Advisory Group as a next generation private wealth manager. My area of expertise revolves around a comprehensive and customized financial planning process ranging from discovery to implementation and monitoring. Coupled with my holistic planning method is an extensive and fundamental investment management background.
Prior to Mutual Trust Family Office, I was a Financial Advisor and Wealth Planner at UBS Financial managing client relationships directly through a comprehensive wealth management approach. Before UBS Financial, it was during my days at US Trust (Bank of America Private Wealth) that led me to work directly with clients. I fully became equipped to handle the breadth and depth of complete private wealth management and banking services for high-net-worth and ultra-high-net worth families. My career in financial services began in 2012 on the asset management side of the industry with Gyroscope Capital Management Group (Naples, FL). Managing large-cap equity strategies with covered-call overlays and assisting in single-stock risk management were my primary responsibilities.
I currently hold the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNING™ and Accredited Wealth Management Advisor (AWMA®) designations. Academically, I graduated with honors from Bemidji State University (MN) with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration (Finance Emphasis) in 2008, and in 2012, I obtained an M.B.A. from the Lugert College of Business at Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU).
Outside of work, my wife (Jessica), two sons (Jameson and Reed) and I enjoy being in community with our church body, spending time with family and friends, and taking trips to the beach. Golfing, fishing, and being an avid fan of football are all activities at the top of my list when I have some down time.
Ryan Rocuant, CFP®
Private Wealth Advisor
I am a lifelong resident of Southwest Florida. I hold Bachelor’s degrees in Finance and Economics from Florida Gulf Coast University’s Lutgert College of Business. While earning my degrees at FGCU, I was also a member of the FGCU Division 1 men’s basketball team.
I became a member of Mutual Trust Advisory Group in February of 2021 as an Associate Advisor. This position involved all aspects of the comprehensive financial planning process and allowed me to interact in the various financial planning domains. My prior work history includes serving as a customer support representative for State Farm Insurance where I provided customers with the highest level of customer care.
Since joining Mutual Trust Advisory Group, I have pursued and attained the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification. This certification represents knowledge in holistic financial planning, a commitment to practice in the clients’ best interest, and is generally viewed as the gold standard of the financial planning industry.
In my personal life, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, weightlifting, basketball, and pickleball. I also love to travel and have had opportunities to visit some neat places, such as Ireland and Chile.
I grew up in Northwest Florida and earned my Finance Degree from Florida State University and my master’s degree in Accounting from the University of West Florida. After graduating and living in Charlotte, North Carolina, for 10 years, my husband and I decided to move back to the “Sunshine State” to be closer to the beaches. We have lived in Naples for the past 15 years and have 2 children.
My professional experience includes working in the banking industry for 15 years in the Accounting and Compensation Divisions, serving as the Chapter Executive for the Financial Planning Association of Southwest Florida, and happily serving clients at Mutual Trust Wealth Managment since 2018. When I’m not busy with my kid’s activities, I enjoy Pilates classes, home decorating projects, book club discussions, and various volunteer opportunities.
