Rusty Lovett

Investment ProffesionalsRusty Lovett began his career with Astra Investment Services in the fall of 2013 with the goal of assisting customers and aiding them to achieve their financial goals as well as educate them on their long term investment opportunities. Prior to Rusty joining the Astra Bank family, he worked for some of the most well-known financial companies in Kansas and Texas to include Commerce Bank and Prudential, where he earned the New Agent of the Year award in 1996.

Rusty graduated from Texas State University with a degree in Geology in 1982. After some time working in the oil industry, Rusty made a career change into the financial services industry. For Rusty, his education and knowledge in the ever-changing industry of finances is always top of mind. He has attained his FINRA Series 6, 7, 24, 63 and 66 registrations.

According to Rusty himself, “In life you can have an accomplished career, but it truly isn’t worth it without the support and love of your family.” His wife, Patsy, who is also very accomplished in her trade, has been with J.P. Weigand & Sons Inc. Realtors in Hutchinson for almost 11 years. Their daughter Lauren, a K-State graduate, is a Corporate Recruiter with CBIZ in Kansas City. Their son, Ross, graduated from the U.S. Airforce Academy where he played football for 4 years and is currently an officer of the U.S. Airforce.

Hutchinson, Kansas has been home for Rusty and his family for 30 years, his community outreach has involved being a past member of Leadership Reno County, a member of First Presbyterian Church, Young American Board, and being a part of the Hutchinson Chamber of Commerce.

A quote near and dear to his heart, “To the world you may be one person but to one person you may be the world”.
