Rouse & Company puts serving you first, backed by an impressive collection of multi-disciplinary industry relationships and a deep bench of skilled resources we've carefully assembled over 25 years.

You may have known us before, but you've never seen us this nimble, and this independent.

And we have been fortunate to be involved in many of our clients’ most celebrated milestones, far and away the most fulfilling aspect of our work.

This unique approach goes far beyond traditional executive benefit plan design—a proven process that results in engaged executives and reduced turnover. To simplify the experience, we'll walk through all the options with you and develop a program custom-tailored for your company, culture and key executives, with sustainable results.

Meet Our Team

Casey Rouse


Casey designs nonqualified plans, funding solutions, carve-out programs, and transition strategies to help companies attract, retain and reward key talent. Having built two previous executive benefit practices from the ground up, he founded Rouse & Company with the understanding executive benefit clients crave specialty, objectivity, value, and customization in a growing world of mega-broker generalists.

With over 25 years of experience, Casey comments frequently on trends in executive benefits and serves on multiple non-qualified plan advisory boards. He is consistently recognized nationally for excellence in the specialized area of executive compensation strategies.

Casey earned his B.S. in Business from Santa Clara University, majoring in Economics and Finance. He holds Series 6, Series 7, Series 63, and Series 65 securities registrations, as well as life and annuity insurance licenses.

Casey is married to the love of his life, Jodi, and is passionate about the best job he'll ever have, being a dad to four beautiful kiddos: Scarlett, Beckett, Declan, and Caden Jax. When not chasing around the kids, he’s chasing his dream of breaking 80 and cheering on the Huskers.
